The investment arm of MemorialCare, based in Fountain Valley, California, has joined a series A financing round for Amenities Health, a digital front door for healthcare companies. The round raised $6.25 million, bringing the total capital raised Amenities Health to $10 million. The company plans to use the funding to expand its partnerships with health systems.
Amenities Health’s digital front door platform is designed to provide new patients with instant registration for a new electronic health record (EHR) account. The platform aims to offer a modern and seamless engagement strategy for patients, allowing them to easily register, book appointments online, and receive same-day services.
According to Aasim Saeed, MD, the Founder and CEO of Amenities Health, health systems need to enhance their digital tools to keep patients satisfied, healthy, and loyal. He believes that as tech companies, retailers, and urgent care clinics increasingly offer patients convenience, health systems must provide an Uber or Amazon-like experience to compete. This means offering a quick and easy registration process, online appointment booking, and same-day services.
Amenities Health’s successful financing round highlights the growing importance of digital tools in healthcare. By partnering with health systems, the company aims to improve patient engagement and satisfaction. The digital front door platform offers a solution for seamless integration and modernization of healthcare services.
