Medbelle, the London based health tech platform which terms itself as an “end-to-end platform” for medical procedures has bagged a $7 million Series A funding. Signals Venture Capital led the latest funding round with participation from Talis Capital, Mutschler Ventures, IBB Beteiligungsgesellschaft, and Cavalry Ventures.
Prior to this round, Medbelle had raised an undisclosed sum in seed investment a couple of years back. The platform was founded by Leander de Laporte and Daniel Kolb in 2016 with an aim of digitizing the health industry, with the patient being the center point. The platform offers a web and mobile app which the patient can use to book various medical procedures.The company says that it wants to involve in the journey of the patient, starting from the first ever discussion with the healthcare provider to the end of the whole procedure through its three-layered digital hospital model.
Kolb, the MD of the company talking about the utilization of the freshly raised funds said, “The new capital will accelerate the development of our platform while growing Medbelle’s operating footprint. It will allow us to streamline high-quality care at scale and take even more work off the hospitals’ and specialists’ shoulders. Our technology helps them to operate more efficiently, be better-utilized and fully focused on what matters most: the best care for patients.”
Clemens Koós, an investment manager at Signals Venture Capital commenting on the capital infusion in Medbelle said, “Major digital platforms improve customer experience in almost all industries, however, in healthcare, the digitization of patient journeys has been heavily lagging behind until now. Medbelle’s technology and personalized care enable much simpler and more affordable medical treatments - while allowing healthcare providers to efficiently focus on treating patients."
The company considers offline clinic groups with brick and mortar clinics as its competitors and it wants to defeat them through their digital-first offerings.
