BetterDoctor will also expand its beautifully designed web and mobile apps to new platforms to make it easier for patients to navigate the provider and insurance jungle, as well as to provide physicians with a valuable tool to expand their practices.
Ari Tulla, CEO of BetterDoctor, who founded the company with CTO Tapio Tolvanen after dealing with complex medical issues in his family and spending months on a frustrating search for the right doctor, said, “Our vision is to take the guessing game out of selecting the right doctor. Wouldn’t you like a service that helps you find the best local specialist who focuses on your condition, accepts your insurance and is available tomorrow? With the help of new funding, we’re getting closer to the vision every day. ”
BetterDoctor is the first health app to publish the experience of individual physicians in different medical procedures through Medicare, making them complex and previously unattainable. Oh, S Government data on each doctor can be easily searched in 10 seconds or less The patient looking for the best surgeon to perform a knee surgery near their home is now able to see the information they need in a single glance on BetterDoctor, instead of spending hours comparing doctors by calling the office.

Big data makes a big difference in healthcare, and NEA is thrilled to be a part of it. ”
