The healthtech startup plans on expanding operations to encompass the rest of the GCC, building on the apps’ ability to connect doctors and patients regionally.
Bahrain-based startup, Doctori, has raised $500,000 in a seed round which is is set to be channelled into fine-tuning and enhancing the Doctori’s affiliate Doctor Who app, which caters various medical care services for all spectrums of society and spotlights more than 300 doctors and medical professionals providing their services electronically.
Founded in 2018 by Ahmed Alawadhi and Ahmed Mahmood, Doctor has been hailed by all quarters for its efforts in connecting certified doctors with patients via video calls, and is fully licensed by Bahrain’s National Health Regulatory Authority. For Mahmood, who also serves as Doctor’s CEO, there's a simple goal amidst talk of funding and enhanced tech.
“Between the patient and the doctor, the goal is to provide a complete digital solution and make the platform a comprehensive digital hospital, where patients can diagnose, test and treat in a stress-free environment anywhere, without having to wait in line," he said.
Doctori further plans on expanding operations to Saudi Arabia and Kuwait, building on the apps’ ability to connect doctors outside Bahrain to consult local patients, allowing patients to consult with their doctors anywhere.
