According to a 2022 report by HIMSS on the state of healthcare, close to 80% of all health systems in the U.S. are still in their planning stages for digital transformation. The barriers include poor tool fit to organisational workflows and lack of proper customisation.
Tackling the challenge head-on, Bulgaria-based health tech startup Healee is enabling healthcare organisations to quickly launch ready infrastructure for telehealth, digital check-in, and scheduling, configured to custom workflows and branding. The startup has raised $2 million in a seed round to fund its U.S. expansion and technology development. The investment was led by Nina Capital, with the participation of Calm/Storm Ventures, KAYA VC and existing investor Eleven Ventures.
The Sofia-based platform’s current applications span traditional healthcare, insurance and pharma, to niche services in wellness, behavioral health, chronic and palliative care, COVID consultations, and many more.
Hristo Kosev, CEO and founder of Healee said: “Healee offers you an advanced, yet easy way to get started with digital health while building your brand and adapting your tool for better user engagement.”
“Healee is prepared for the next disruption wave in virtual care, now driven by the growing need for hybrid or virtual-first care models. It has taken an enabling technology platform approach to become a leader in this wave, with the ability to support any distinct virtual care use case,” added Marc Subirats, general partner at Nina Capital.
