Telemedicine app draws $10.4M in venture funds

The name Pager may remind physicians of a past technology era, but the telemedicine app is moving forward with $10.4 million in venture funds.

Pager, based in New York City, completed its first venture funding round with investors such as Summation Health Ventures, a strategic partnership between the Fountain Valley, Calif.-based MemorialCare and Los Angeles-based Cedars-Sinai health systems, according to Venture Beat.

The app allows users to book an appointment with physicians through iPhones in New York City. Patients can call physicians to their location, be it at home, a hotel or an office, for $49 on the first visit and $199 for each subsequent visit, billable to insurance. Appointments can include most urgent care needs, including common infections, acute conditions and injuries, according to Pager's website.

The new funds will be used to expand service into new markets, migrating onto new devices and integrating more insurers into the platform, according to the report.
