Berlin-based health tech startup Doctorly has raised a $5.6 million seed round to try and get rid of disk-based operating (DOS) healthcare systems. The round was led by Speedinvest and joined by Seedcamp, Target Global, Force Ventures and UNIQA Ventures. Also backing doctorly are Calm/Storm ventures and Plug & Play.
Founded in early 2018, Doctorly says 130,000 medical practices in Germany alone still rely on a DOS-based system to manage patients’ records. With its solution, it aims to change the way doctors process and manage patients’ medical information by replacing the legacy software.
In the words of Felix Faltin, head of digital health at Speedinvest: “As patients, we all know how frustrating it is to fill out repetitive forms and sit around in waiting rooms to then only get five minutes with an overworked doctor who is waiting for her screen to unfreeze.”
Aside from that, the company also wants to enable patients themselves to have direct access to their medical information, and connect devices to its platform to provide health updates in real time.
