Push Doctor

HealthTech firm Push Doctor has raised a $26.1m Series B led by Accelerated Digital Ventures and Draper Esprit.

With this round, which drew support from Oxford Capital, Partech Ventures and Senveture Partners, Push Doctor brings its total funding raised to more than $37.5m.

Similarly to Babylon, which has raised $85m in total, Manchester-based Push Doctor connects patients with qualified GPs in the UK and claims to be able to get users appointments with physicians in just six minutes.

Eren Ozagir, the founder and CEO, said: “We have treated more cases digitally than anyone in Europe and consistently grown over 35% month-on-month for 16 months.

“As a result, we have a dataset that provides a unique view of the medical issues facing a nation. This has meant that we have been able to scope and create a data-driven digital health platform that will treat the whole person.

“No one before Push Doctor has provided consumers with access to a single digital health platform that combines responsive medicine and chronic condition management as well as fitness and nutritional conditioning,” he added. 

Push Doctor will use the cash to launch new products, with the first product expected to hit the market later this year.

Ozagir continued:“This recent funding round will see us boost our growth in customer numbers and take significant steps in our ambition to become the preferred consumer digital health care brand in the world.”

Michael Dimelow, head of Investment at ADV, commented on how the health sector was perfectly positioned to benefit from digital technology innovation: “We’re delighted to announce our investment inPush Doctor with its unique vision to build an open platform, where the entire industry can connect and collaborate.  

“Equally, consumers will gain efficient and direct access to healthcare professionals.  The Push Doctor team is tried and tested in building international internet propositions at scale, andwe look forward to supporting them in their journey to build an industry-defining global healthcare platform.”

Dr. Vishal Gulati, digital health investor at Draper Esprit, added that peoples’ expectations about how, when and there they access healthcare have changed.

“Push Doctor is the leading health provider which is addressing growing, unmet patient needs. By putting the patient experience first, the company is changing our relationship with healthcare, lowering the hurdle of access for both immediate needs and chronic, long term conditions.

“Having known the team for two years now, I am excited to continue working with them to build a product which reshapes patient experiences in the future,” he concluded.
