Visionable, the universal video collaboration platform that enables clinicians to deliver better patient care, has today announced it is substantially expanding its international presence in US and India, creating new jobs in both regions. The move is a step forward in fulfilling the company’s mission to make healthcare more equitable and accessible for all, by connecting patients, clinicians and healthcare organisations globally.
The global expansion signifies continued growth for Visionable, fuelled by a recent funding round where the British health startup secured €10.7 million. Visionable has been gaining momentum in the two regions through its existing global partnerships, and this next phase will see the company start to prioritise global expansion further.
In India, Visionable will build and grow its business to help deliver better healthcare to a country that’s home to 20% of the world’s population. The majority of doctors and nurses in India are located in bigger and wealthier cities, often leaving a gap in access to quality healthcare in rural and poorer areas. Visionable’s ambition for the region is to help build an innovative system that will help to better connect clinicians and bring healthcare to patients.
In the US, Visionable plans to triple its team, allowing the company to build a strong foothold in the largest economy in the world. Equal access to healthcare in also a challenge in the US, with a quarter of Americans living in rural areas, struggling with reliable access. Visionable’s aim in the region is to help tackle this channel by building on existing projects, including trials with prominent health systems, as well as working with public and private systems, to deliver affordable, high quality and timely healthcare to 330 million people.
Founded in London, by the former NHS manager Alan Lowe, and the commercial and social entrepreneur and CBE Lord Victor Adebowale, Visionable aims to ensure every person on the planet has access to high-quality healthcare, regardless of location or circumstances. Visionable’s platform is already used by over 100 individual organisations across the NHS, powering consultations and treatment, with a potential to reach 2.28 million patients each year.
Alan Lowe, CEO of Visionable, said: “This is just the start for supporting healthcare provision globally and eliminating geographical barriers when it comes to delivering care and expertise. The expansion will allow us to tap local-based expertise and work closely with patients and clinicians to improve the way healthcare is delivered from within systems. Our flexible approach to technology allows us to address unique scenarios and make a real difference in healthcare services globally.”
