Zipnosis, a years-emerging health-technology firm that allows medical providers to conduct economical “virtual” visits with patients, has raised $17 million in its first formal round of venture capital.
The Minneapolis-based company touts itself the first “virtual care solution” that enables health systems to launch their own “branded” virtual-care clinics online or mobile with their own medical professionals in timely consultations designed to help patients treat themselves, pursue an in-clinic visit or seek other medical help, as their conditions necessitate.
“We’ve pioneered virtual care as a [software] platform and we’re raising the money to try and cement that position,” Zipnosis CEO Jon Pearce said last week. “We’re about 30 people today and we’re going to scale up, double our staff fairly quickly, sales and marketing.”
The $17 million round closed recently and will be announced Monday.Read Original Article
