MedTel Healthcare, an India-based business to business (B2B) and business to business to consumer (B2B2C) connected care and remote patient monitoring platform, said Tuesday it is planning to raise around $10 million in Series A.

Existing investors and leading venture capitals have already expressed interest in the series A fund raise, MedTel said in a statement.

The firm aims to raise series A for rapid business expansion, product improvement and conducting relevant clinical validation studies. It is expecting to close the fresh round within the ongoing financial year itself.

It had raised its pre-series A round from a group of angels, HNIs, Meta Health (a Singapore based listed company), Physician VC (A global healthcare-focused venture capital firm founded and managed by doctors), and KIIT-Technology Business Incubator.

“Last year was a real test for us. The healthcare industry was extended to unforeseen limits with the spread of the Coronavirus pandemic.
