Indonesian Health Startup Prixa has just secured USD 3 million of funding from Telkom Indonesia’s MDI Ventures, Trans-Pacific Technology Fund and Siloam Hospitals Group. Since its founding in 2019, Prixa has raised a total of USD 4.5 million. The new funds will be allocated to scale its platform and user base, support existing customers as well as enhance healthcare access and digital health transformation in Indonesia.
The company operates on a B2B model, cooperating with insurance providers, corporations and government entities. Currently, the company has built partnerships with four major insurers, and plans to add six additional insurers in the near future. Compared to other local telehealth startups, such as Halodoc and Alodokter, Prixa differentiates itself by reducing costs for healthcare payers and positioning itself as a digital primary care platform.
Via its B2B consumers, Prixa is currently serving about 10 million patients. Users of Prixa can access telemedicine services, a digital health assistant, on-demand lab tests and medicines deliveries. The AI-powered health management platform found usage has increased in light of the Covid-19 pandemic, as patients opt for online consultations for primary care.
