Meedoc, The Video Conferencing App For You And Your Doctor, Raises $1.5M Seed Round
Why can't you Skype your doctor? That was the question Mikko Kiiskil� asked before co-founding Meedoc, an app and service that lets patients connect with their doctor online via the medium of video. Telephone consultations are already widely used by the medical industry -- especially for pre-screening and follow up consultations -- but doctors have been slow to upgrade the 'technology' in the age of near-ubiquitous broadband, mobile devices and apps.
Today the Finnish startup is disclosing a $1.5 million seed round from unnamed investors from the healthcare industry -- spanning the fields of pharma, care providers, pharmacists, doctors and medical regulation.
Whilst no well-known Silicon Valley or European angels are included in this list, Kiiskil� is keen to point out that a startup hoping to knock down walls in the extremely regulated healthcare industry in Europe, requires a different kind of investor profile and one that has the knowledge and connections to help with that mission.
