Sweden’s Ally Medical, which offers a digital platform for doctor visits at home, has raised 18.5 million crowns investment round from investors, including Almi, Brightly and Palmstierna Invest, to grow the existing business, expand to new cities and launch more services.
Ally collaborates with health centres and acts as a mix between a health centre and an emergency department. The patient books the visit via an app and can get help with examination, diagnosis, vaccine and other care for which you do not need to visit a hospital.
As a specialized subcontractor, Ally can carry out home visits efficiently without creating additional bottlenecks in healthcare.Hanna Goldmann, Investment Manager at Almi Invest.
“Home visits are a form of care that is exactly in time, both in view of the current pandemic situation and in view of major market trends, such as urbanization and an aging population,” Goldman said.
Ally offers a digital platform, where patients that have an agreement with Ally can book home visits via Ally’s app.
More and more people prefer to receive care at home instead of sitting in a waiting room at a health centre or hospital. The pandemic has only accelerated this trend.Alexander Åström, founder and CEO of Ally.
“Care must become more accessible to guarantee the highest possible quality and take responsibility for digital patients by offering the same opportunity for sampling at digital meetings as at physical meetings. With our medical home delivery model, Ally can improve the patient experience and health outcomes by letting people stay in the comfort of their own home while giving medical teams the best opportunity to identify the patient’s needs,” Åström said.
