Heal App Delivers 16,000 House Call Visits in Two Years, Now Planning New Services and National Rollout

Press Release (ePRNews.com) - LOS ANGELES, USA - Feb 22, 2017 - Heal, the app for on-demand doctor house calls, today announced the Company is moving the needle towards changing the broken healthcare system through the transformative power of on-demand doctor house calls. In two years, Heal has driven more than $5.9 million in healthcare savings costs, reduced unnecessary prescription antibiotic usage by more than 50 percent, raised $52 million in funding, and reduced non-emergency trips to the ER/urgent care by 62 percent for its patients and partners. Additionally, Heal has delivered 16,000 patient house call visits, and plans to grow that number exponentially through its availability in select cities within Florida, Texas, New York, and Pennsylvania, by the end of 2017.

“In February 2015, we saw our first Heal patient – ever,” said Nick Desai, CEO and co-founder at Heal. “With visionary investors and a world-class team, we are excited to more fully realize our mission of striving to make healthcare more effective, intuitive, and affordable for all.”

Recently, Heal hired Former General Manager of Mobile Apps at Amazon, Rish Tandon, to serve as the Company’s CTO; and Bhavini Soneji, the former Director of Engineering at Snap Inc., to serve as Heal’s SVP of Engineering.

“I joined Heal to create purposeful innovation that will make the Heal experience even more proactive, precise and powerful,” said Bhavini Sonjei, SVP of engineering at Heal. “Together with Rish, we are eager to re-invent the system of healthcare as we know it.”

“With this recent addition of Rish and Bhavini, we’re creating a formidable technology team which indicates Heal being a place to be if you truly want to change the world,” continued Desai. 

Founded by Nick Desai and Dr. Renee Dua, Heal is more than just convenient house calls—its larger mission is to transform the broken healthcare system. By freeing doctors from the burden of seeing 40 patients a day, as many need to, Heal gives doctors more time to take care of fewer patients. This leads to a better system for doctors, better health outcomes for patients, and lower costs for the larger healthcare system.

Heal and its investors, including Fidelity ContraFund, Thomas Tull, Jim Breyer, the Ellison Family, Lionel Richie, Dr. Paul Jacobs, and others, are eager to realize the full potential of its aim to improve healthcare in a positive way, not only for patients, but for doctors and payers alike.
