TORONTO (Diya TV) — In today’s healthcare landscape, the process of exchanging medical images often involves outdated methods like CDs. PocketHealth, a Toronto-based startup, aims to change that with its platform. Recently, the company announced a significant milestone: securing $45 million CAD ($33 million USD) in Series B funding to propel its mission forward.

Founded eight years ago, PocketHealth set out to simplify the way patients and healthcare providers access, share, and understand medical images. What began as a vision to streamline the process has evolved into a solution that has garnered over 1.5 million users across 650 healthcare facilities in North America.

With this latest funding round, PocketHealth plans to ramp up its efforts in several areas. The company aims to enhance its AI technology, leveraging artificial intelligence to provide personalized insights and improve patient understanding of their health records. 

Additionally, the funding will fuel PocketHealth’s expansion efforts, enabling the company to double its current workforce of 110 employees over the next two years.
