San Francisco, CA (GistCloud) May 16, 2013–Ringadoc, the nation’s leading innovator in doctor-patient communication has proven that doctors are looking to leverage technology to increase office efficiency and simplify doctor-patient engagement. Ringadoc’s cloud-based automated answering service has now successfully handled over 100,000 calls for practices across the country as they have raised an additional $700,000 in seed funding.
This closes their seed round, led by Founders Fund’s seed vehicle FF Angel, at a total of $1.9 million. Los Angeles based Siemer VC, Telegraph Hill Group, and Dr. Lyle Dennis (Chief of Neurology at Bon Secours Health System) join other notable investors in the round including Ryan Howard (Founder and CEO of Practice Fusion) and Sharon Knight (Former President of One Medical Group).
Ringadoc is changing the way doctors manage out-of-office communication by giving doctors the filter they need to separate their professional lives from their personal lives. Ringadoc empowers doctors to triage patients before speaking to them on the phone or via a costly office visit. With the upcoming onslaught of 30-40 million new patients in 2014, doctors will be scrambling for new ways to increase practice efficiency while leading to better patient outcomes, Ringadoc allows doctors to do both and quickly access all their after-hours communication on any device anytime, anywhere through their innovative answering service.
“By streamlining after-hours communication, we’ve created a simple solution to what is currently a huge pain point for doctors and their staff. Ringadoc reduces the human error associated with costly answering services and live operators by allowing the doctor to hear the patient’s issue in their own voice and words. At that point the doctor is empowered to decide how they would like to respond to that message,” says CEO and Co-Founder Jordan Michaels. “We’re capturing and centralizing valuable, real-time conversations between doctors and patients that are an instrumental part of the healthcare conversation, previously overlooked until now.”
