Belgian health tech startup Awell Health has secured £1.9 million in funding from London-based investors LocalGlobe and Moonfire to bolster its collaboration and productivity tools for the healthcare industry.
Awell Health's software platform basically enables healthcare organisations to create, implement and continually update to optimise 'care pathways' in order to improve patient outcomes. And yes, it has one for Covid-19 as well.
"Technology has enabled teams in almost all industries to digitise and reinvent their workflow, but healthcare is still largely stuck in its old ways, using outdated traditional paper-based processes," says co-founder and CEO Thomas Vande Casteele.
"As consumers, we are led to believe the industry has rapidly transformed – with news of innovations in robotic surgeries, new treatments, apps and wearables – but the way care delivery is organised has changed very little," he adds.
Awell Health was founded in 2018 and has worked with about 25 hospitals across Europe to date.
