China’s mobile health platform Anxin Doctor secures $28m funding

Anxin Doctor, a Beijing-based mobile maternal and pediatric health platform, raises RMB200 million ($28 million) from Matrix Partners China, Qiming Venture Partners and IDG Capital, according to a report in China Money Network.

The funding will be used to improve its offline medical care service and allow patients to access online services from doctors they meet offline.

It claims that it has tens of thousands of doctors on the platform. It currently provides the service in six cities including Beijing, Shanghai and Shenzhen.

Anxin Doctor was established in 2015 as a platform to connect patients with obstetrics, gynecology doctors and pediatrics doctors. In the same year, it raised tens of millions RMB in series A round from Vision Plus Capital founded by Alibaba Group’s former executive Wu Yongming.

Mobile health startups have grown rapidly in China. Last year, Apricot Forest raised $30 million from the subsidiary of Shanghai-listed Joincare Pharmaceutical Group Industry, and Shanghai Kyee Technology raised RMB97 million ($14 million) led by SBCVC and CDH Venture Partners.
