A telehealth company that developed a white labeled virtual care service has raised $17 million in a Series A round, according to a company statement.
Patients pay a service fee of about $25-$35 to use the service. They are asked a series of questions, an algorithm processes their responses, and the system uses that information to produce a clinical note, which is directed to the most appropriate physician. The idea is that patients get their query addressed in a few minutes through email, or by phone or video interaction if necessary.
Pearce said its approach has focused on 90 simple acute primary care conditions. Among them, common medical conditions such as sinus infections, bladder infections, pink eye, and colds. But he said Zipnosis is beginning to expand to chronic conditions. By the end of the first quarter, he said it would add hypertension and hyperlipidemia to the illnesses it covers.
