Renowned Swedish video-based healthcare provider KRY has reportedly declared its plans to expand the reach of its digital medical care services across the Europe healthcare industry. In accordance, the firm has raised close to USD 66 million in a funding round led by Accel, Project A, Index Ventures, Creandum, and many others.

With the means of a mobile app, patients are able to consult a healthcare professional recruited by KRY and even enlist their symptoms and share photos, post which KRY doctors provide medical referrals, advice, and deliver suitable prescriptions and tests to the patient’s home.
As per an official statement, KRY’s plausibly aims to address the ever-growing shortage of healthcare providers across myriad geographies. Now, KRY is intent on expanding the reach of its digital healthcare services in France and the United Kingdom. However, the official statement has not yet mentioned a specific timeline regarding when the digital healthcare services would be launched by the company.
According to Johannes Schildt, the CEO and cofounder of KRY, the company aims to provide equal access to high quality healthcare services sans hassles, regardless of the patient location, contributing toward making the world a healthier place to live in. With the means of digitization, the firm will thrive the paradigm shift that the healthcare industry is witnessing today, he further adds.
