Anima announced a $2.5 million seed round led by Hummingbird Ventures.
Anima, a London, UK-based software developer for health care triage, announced the completion of a $2.5 million seed funding round.
Proceeds will be used to expand across 70 UK-based clinics by the end of 2021.
Anima, founded in 2020 by CEO Shun Pang and Rachel Mumford , developed software for healthcare providers, which speeds up the clinical workflow 10x through automated total triage, and allows providers to deliver the right care for patients within 24 hours.
The automated triage involves having the patient to submit their problem through Anima’s platform instead of calling the practice and booking the appointment. The platform asks questions and then presents a report of the findings and data to the patient’s clinic via a dashboard where all team members can collaborate. The physician can look at answers to the questions, the data trends across time, and determine what the patient needs, whether that is a prescription or booking an appointment right then.
Anima launched its platform early in spring 2021 and is live in two clinics that cover 10,000 patients. The company was part of the European startups at Y Combinator in winter 2021.
