Medloop, a healthcare app on a mission to “revive the connection” between patients and caregivers, will continue its expansion across the UK and Germany after raising €6 million. Kamet Ventures and AXA led the investment.

Founded in 2018 by Berlin-based entrepreneur Shishir Singhee, Medloop’s app allows patients to book appointments, order repeat prescriptions, view test results and receive notifications about upcoming appointments. It connects to most GP practices in the UK through patient records system EMIS.

“Healthcare today has become increasingly impersonalised as ever-growing patient registers have made it challenging for doctors to treat patients in a bespoke way,” said Medloop founder and CEO Shishir Singhee.

“Medloop strives to bridge this critical gap, by employing technology to empower patients and help doctors deliver proactive and holistic care.”

The capital injection will allow the startup to enhance its product offering and continue expanding across the UK and Germany. Additionally, Medloop was recently awarded a place in the GP IT Futures framework by the NHS, which solidifies its position in the UK market by allowing it to be centrally procured at scale by Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) across the country.

Stephane Guinet, CEO of Kamet Ventures, adds:

“It is no secret how overstretched doctors are in terms of the time and care they can offer each patient. Medloop’s offering is a novel solution to this challenge and we are very excited to be part of Medloop’s growth story given how critical its offering is to the UK market and beyond.”
