SG healthtech startup Bot MD raises $5m Series A
Launched in 2018, Bot MD provides doctors with access to clinical information from their smartphones, eliminating the need to call a hospital operator or request access to a medical facility’s intranet. The startup raised $1.6 million in its Seed Round in August 2018.
Bot MD said the fresh funding will be used to expand in Indonesia, the Philippines, Malaysia, and India. It also seeks to add new features and introduce AI assistant that supports Bahasa Indonesian and Spanish later this year.
“We’re focused on designing a user experience on our platform that will modernize clinical workflows without the need to adopt an entirely new hospital system or change existing workflow,” said Dorothea Koh, CEO and co-founder of Bot MD.
The app is currently used by more than 13,000 doctors at hospitals and institutions such as Changi General Hospital, National University Health System, National University Cancer Institute of Singapore, Tan Tock Seng Hospital, Singapore General Hospital, Parkway Radiology, and the National Kidney Transplant Institute.
