Chiron Health Raises $2.3 Million

imgres-3Chiron Health, which provides telemedicine healthcare consultation for doctors with patients remotely over the Internet, announced Wednesday it has raised $2.3 million in seed stage funding.

The Austin-based company also released its iPhone and iPad app for patients.

“The telemedicine industry has been experiencing enormous growth over the last 12 months, and video visits are quickly becoming a mainstream form of healthcare delivery,” Andrew O’Hara, Chiron Health’s founder and CEO, said in a news release.

Chiron is working with 20 healthcare providers including Athenahealth. It focuses on helping physician practices.

“We believe that telemedicine should be used as a tool to strengthen the physician-patient relationship,” O’Hara said. “While on-demand telemedicine is good for keeping patients out of the emergency department, the real promise of telemedicine will be realized when patients have easy access to their own healthcare providers.”
