Healistic, a pharma-based digital health app, has announced £1 million in pre-seed funding from international investors.
Users of the iOS and Android app can order thousands of healthcare products including P-Meds and soon, prescription medications, delivered in under 45 minutes.
Healistic has partnered with independent pharmacies across London, with the company planning on expanding further into the UK this year.
Daniel Bulkin, CEO of Healistic, said:
“This funding round has allowed us to introduce a product to market that will serve the digital patient at a crucial time.
“Against a backdrop of increased uncertainty within the NHS, including strikes and supply chain issues, Healistic aims to alleviate these pressures by connecting patients to the appropriate healthcare solutions through a trusted, centralised system.”
Healistic is developing a scalable marketplace model with SaaS tech solutions to connect pharmacies, insurers and corporations with end users.
The company plans to implement speedy prescription delivery, tele-health consultations with GPs and nutritionists and insurance claim management, as it moves towards a full-service digital healthcare app.
“We believe that immediate healthcare should be accessible to everyone.
“Healistic is building a category leader in the ‘Open Healthcare’ revolution, a parallel to the ‘Open Banking’ revolution, which began in the last decade.”
Healistic investor and serial health tech entrepreneur, Christian Hieronimi, said:
“The launch of Healistic signals a true step in the direction of a deeply integrated and interconnected digital patient journey.
“The platform empowers patients to become active managers of their health and creates a comprehensive system to take the treatment, prescription, and therapy process to the next level.”
