With a combination of health technology and brick-and-mortar clinics, Jutro Medical is building a new model of mobile-first primary care clinics from its homebase in Warsaw. Amid a lot of other digital health solutions on the market, the startup believes its model is the way forward; Jutro means 'tomorrow' in Polish.
Johann Reich of Rheingau Founders agrees. "We are convinced that vertically integrated clinic platforms will be the future of healthcare," he said. The German VC took part in a €1.4 million in a pre-seed round for the Polish startup, as did Kogito Ventures, Inovo Venture Partners and Market One Capital.
With the app, patients can consult their doctors, get prescriptions, referrals, lab results and request medical leave online, right within the application. In more complex cases, patients can come to the clinic for an in-person examination. Consultations are free for everyone insured by the publicly funded National Health Fund of Poland.
Since opening in Warsaw in July, the clinic says it has doubled its enrolled patients every month. Admittedly still working out some kinks in the software and patient experience, once this pilot phase is over Jutro Medical will try to expand outside of Poland. The goal is to become part of the national health systems in other European countries.
