Ringadoc Expands Doctor-Patient Communications Platform, Raises $700,000 In Seed Funding

Posted May 18, 2013

Ringadoc is a doctor-patient communications company that strives to increase office efficiency and the simplification of doctor-patient engagement.  Ringadoc runs a cloud-based automated answering service that has handled over 100,000 calls for practices across the country.  Ringadoc has raised $700,000 in seed funding to fuel their growth.  The Founders Fund’s seed vehicle FF Angel led this round of funding.  Ringadoc has raised a total of $1.9 million in seed funding.


Other investors that joined this round includes Siemer VC, Telegraph Hill Group, and Dr. Lyle Dennis.  Dr. Dennis is the Chief of Neurology at Bon Secours Health System.  Other investors that participated in this round includes Ryan Howard (founder/CEO of Practice Fusion) and Sharon Knight (former president of One Medical Group).


“By streamlining after-hours communication, we?ve created a simple solution to what is currently a huge pain point for doctors and their staff. Ringadoc reduces the human error associated with costly answering services and live operators by allowing the doctor to hear the patient?s issue in their own voice and words. At that point the doctor is empowered to decide how they would like to respond to that message,” stated Ringadoc co-founder and CEO.  “We?re capturing and centralizing valuable, real-time conversations between doctors and patients that are an instrumental part of the healthcare conversation, previously overlooked until now.”


Ringadoc enables doctors to maintain out-of-office communications by giving them ways to filter information needed to separate their professional lives from their personal lives.  The doctors can triage patients before speaking to them on the phone or through a costly office visit.  Doctors have saved approximately $500,000 in six months by switching to Ringadoc.  Ringadoc plans to use the funding to expand their offering to physician offices across the country.
