These mobile-centric digital-health startups have collectively raised over $1.3B. Patients can now text doctors, request house visits, and consult therapists — all from their phones.
The multi-trillion dollar healthcare industry is getting a makeover from mobile apps.
Many of these startups are bringing the on-demand phenomenon to healthcare, providing app-powered services such as medical-marijuana delivery and therapist sessions. Teladoc, a telemedicine provider that recently filed for an IPO, is backed by investors including Kleiner Perkins and Trident Capital. Teladoc handled nearly 299,000 patient consultations in 2014. Meanwhile, startups such as First Opinion allow consumers to text questions to doctors 24/7, and Pager and Medicast extend into on-demand house visits.
