MeeDoc raises €3,5million investment from XLHEALTH enabling the launch of high quality affordable telemedicine across Europe. With the possibility of conducting 75% of all primary care via telemedicine (Timonen, 2004, University of Oulu, Finland), MeeDoc can have a considerable impact on curbing healthcare payers cost.

The Finnish Startup MeeDoc is changing the way we visit a doctor. Through their app MeeDoc allows you to connect with a doctor via chat or video call, providing a simple, affordable and sustainable addition to existing primary healthcare. This investment holds added value with XLHEALTH’s strategic partnership with CompuGroup Medical, giving access to 400,000 medical professionals. With this investment and XLHEALTH’s unique expertise, MeeDoc is redefining the worldwide telemedicine market.

The rise of Digital Health could not have happened at a better time. As Europe’s population ages and the number of people with chronic conditions grows, the financial strains on payers and insurers mount. By using the MeeDoc app, treatment times can be reduced by up to 70% and a patient and doctor satisfaction index of over 93% can be achieved.

“We are bringing access to better care for patients, breakthrough tools and new economic opportunities for doctors, and enabling considerable savings for healthcare payers.”
Mikko Kiiskilä, CEO & Co-Founder, MeeDoc.

MeeDoc and XLHEALTH bring together two experts in Digital Health, working towards the realisation of XLHEALTH’ vision of maintaining and improving the health of every human in a sustainable manner through digital healthcare.

“Telemedicine is currently dominated by governance, data security and trust issues. We evaluated countless startups in this space, MeeDoc uniquely solved these healthcare regulatory compliance challenges”
Ulli Jendrik Koop, Chairman & CEO XLHEALTH

“The combination of our expert-level team, world class platform together with XLHEALTH’s unique expertise, deep knowledge base and strategic partnerships will help us meet the demand from multiple new markets even faster.”
Mikko Kiiskilä, CEO & Co-Founder, MeeDoc.
