TechCrunch: PocketHealth eases doctor-patient communications

TechCrunch speaks to PocketHealth about $33M Series B Funding

In a news story about PocketHealth’s $33M Series B funding round, TechCrunch explores how patients are provided with access to their medical data through PocketHealth, while legacy image exchange systems create barriers for both patients and healthcare providers to access medical imaging results..

TechCrunch cites Rishi Nayyar, Co-Founder and CEO, “Despite technological advancements, access to healthcare data remains hindered by legacy image exchanges, creating delays, unnecessary costs and negative patient experiences.”

The PocketHealth co-founders share their goal of building a medical image exchange platform to improve the process for every patient at every healthcare provider – a solution to legacy image-sharing systems that are limited by closed network sharing. With PocketHealth, patients have more access to, control over and a deeper understanding of their health records, improving patient engagement. PocketHealth plans to use the investment to improve its AI technology, double its current headcount of 110 over the next two years and expand its operations across North America.
