HealthAtom empowers LatAm’s small healthcare offices with cloud-based operations TechCrunch

HealthAtom is aiming to be the cloud-based operating system for small and medium-sized healthcare companies across Latin America (LatAm). Although the company has been operating since 2012, this is the first time the company has announced new capital, in the amount of 10 million USD.

HealthAtom’s medilink and Dentalink software suites enable clinics to create schedules, manage electronic health records, handle inventory, manage payroll, and provide budget breakdowns and regulatory filings. determined. They also have telehealth capabilities that allow patients to access their records on a mobile device.

Suppliers will contact HealthAtom to provide information about the size of their operations and their needs and desires. After consultation, a plan will be established and information can be transferred to the cloud platform, in compliance with local regulations. According to the founders, a clinic can be up and running on the system within 3 hours.

Depending on the size of the operation and local regulations, a clinic can pay anywhere from $20 to $20,000 monthly. Today, HealthAtom has nearly 6,500 customers across 20 countries with major operations in Chile, Colombia and Mexico. In addition, 50,000 doctors and dentists use the company’s services and handle more than 42 million appointments annually.

“We are the point of sales stress, at the information level,” said co-founder and CEO Roberto León in an interview with TechCrunch (conducted in Spanish and authored in Spanish). translator). “It is a tool that can go beyond SaaS and turn us into a technology solution that integrates the entire ecosystem to increase transparency of medical processes.”

According to a report led by the McKinsey Global Institute, digital adoption in health care systems in LatAm catered to larger hospitals and bypassed SMEs. In addition, services for SMBs are often more affordable and do not provide what the clinic needs. HealthAtom wants to be part of the solution by being the “one stop shop” for the small and medium healthcare clinics that run their operations.

Although there are a number of local and country-specific companies offering similar services, HealthAtom remains the sole provider throughout LatAm. While the company offers continental reach, the founders told TechCrunch it’s a challenge to meet every country’s regulations.

“There is regulation and compliance about how things are signed, how information is stored, how certain health data is recorded,” said co-founder and CPO Daniel Guajardo. “All of these things vary from country to country and have allowed us, during these 10 years of this startup, to be able to focus on having a very regionalized product.”

HealthAtom has attracted support in the form of a $10 million Series A led by Kayyak Ventures, with participation from FJ Labs, Soma, Amador, Taram, and one (number of) Angels.

The funds of this round will go towards incorporating payments embedded in its software, forming partnerships with insurance companies and developing a loan program for patients.
