Introducing Doki: The startup using telehealth to make mental health care more accessible (Sponsored)

HealthTech startup Doki is on a mission to make mental healthcare and well-being more accessible through digital tech. The Spanish startup just secured €800k to scale.

Despite growing awareness of the importance of mental health, getting access to help and support is still difficult for many Europeans. Healthcare providers are under immense levels of stress and mental health services are left overburdened and under-resourced in many cases. As a result, too many people are left unable to access the support they need, when they need it.

Digital technology could hold the answer. By enabling people to take care of their health at home and take control of it, healthcare can become more accessible and affordable.

Doki, an innovative e-health company aiming to lead a healthcare revolution in Spain, has just raised €800k in seed funding.

Hamed Mansouri, the founder of the company, said: “This funding will allow us to accelerate our growth, expand our range of services and continue to make healthcare more accessible, affordable and user-centric for everyone.”

In doing so, the startup plans to strengthen its existing team of more than 100 medical professionals, further develop its technology platform and add new services to its existing range of online telemedicine and wellness programmes.

Launched in January 2023, the startup aims to offer convenient and efficient digital health solutions, delivering the services that people both need to have and are expecting to have.

Hamed continued: “At Doki, we believe that everyone deserves the opportunity to lead a happier and healthier life. We understand that in today’s fast-paced world, it’s easy to neglect our well-being, so we’re dedicated to helping people take control of their mental and physical health.”

The future of telemedicine

The healthcare sector is one of those most in need of digital transformation. Doki aims to pave the way forward by combining digital convenience with a human touch.

“We want to offer a better healthcare service to users by blending the comfort of digital technology with the personal touch of the human experience. Leveraging the user-centric mindset, we are empowering people to take control of their health by providing them access to our world-class medical professionals from the comfort of their own homes. With our innovative approach, we are paving the way for a new era in healthcare that is more efficient, more convenient and more user-centric.”

Data shows that younger demographics are the most open to telehealth, with 74% of 18-34-year-olds and 72% of 35-44-year-olds saying they are willing to use it. With the launch of the app in Spain, telehealth is expected to become an even more popular option for those seeking convenient, efficient medical care with no waiting times.

Mental health in Spain

Despite growing awareness of mental health problems, access to these services remains a challenge for many Spaniards. As the world’s largest consumers of anxiolytics and psychiatric medication in the EU, the need for effective and accessible mental health services has never been greater.

Doki addresses this challenge by offering online Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) programmes designed to help address different mental health issues such as stress and low self-esteem. By harnessing the power of digital technology, this start-up facilitates people’s access to the care they need, when they need it.

An accessible solution

Committed to corporate social responsibility, Doki seeks to help the most disadvantaged people by offering free medical and psychological services. With this approach, the company positions itself as an agent of social change that promotes the well-being of the community. In this way, it aims to revolutionise healthcare in Spain and around the world.

Hamed added: “We believe that healthcare should not be difficult or expensive. Our approach is to provide a service that adapts to the needs of all people, offering them access to the best specialists and treatments free of charge”.

Doki is currently in an expansion phase, with plans to reach out to other countries and add new medical specialities to its list of services. The company is also seeking strategic alliances with other organisations to further improve the quality and accessibility of its services.
