Indonesia: HaloDoc raises $13m Series A from Go-Jek, others

Indonesia’s first online healthcare application HaloDoc announced today that it has secured a series A round worth $13 million led by Clermont Group, a Singapore-based private investment firm.

Ride-hailing app Go-Jek, e-commerce platform blibli.com and NSI Ventures also participated in the round. The company said that the funds will be used to improve services in the app.

“This investment round helps us further build our engineering resource and develop a product suitable for mass adoption to deliver on these goals,” HaloDoc’s founder and CEO, Jonathan Sudharta said in a statement.

“Our vision for HaloDoc is to help bring improved healthcare to tens of millions of Indonesians. We aim to address through technology, pressing problems such as lack of access and inequality,” he added.

HaloDoc was launched in April 2016, connecting users to a network of licensed doctors and 1,000 certified partner pharmacies. The application can be accessed with system and network compatible smartphones from anywhere in Indonesia. Users would have the flexibility to choose doctors according to needs, specialty and specified tariffs.

There are currently 18,600 doctors active in HaloDoc, available for consulting for about 10,000 users. Integrated within the app is ApotikAntar, a platform that connect users to certified pharmacies with personal delivery for medications.

HaloDoc is a new product of Jakarta-based MHealthTech, who gave birth to LinkDokter – a digital social media platform designed for doctors – three years ago. HaloDoc was launched as a solution for users to quickly and safely access reliable healthcare services.
