Startup: Pager

Founders: Philip Eytan, Gaspard de Dreuzy and Oscar Salazar (he co-founded Uber!)

Website: https://pager.com

Fun Fact: Ashton Kutcher’s Sound Ventures has backed Pager

Funding: $24.4 Million

Located in: New York, NY

Overview: a Manhattan-based doctor-on-demand service, Pager gives patients the option to forgo a trip to the emergency room or urgent care center by offering the ability to order a doctor directly to the home. Currently available in all five boroughs, Pager is effectively used for the treatment of common infections and conditions such as bronchitis, ear infections, burns and sprains.

Having treated over 3,000 patients since its launch in 2014, Pager aims to connect patients with the right type of care in an immediate and convenient fashion. Moving beyond urgent care treatment scenarios, Pager’s slew of services also includes health checks for metrics such as blood pressure, cholesterol and glucose levels along with physical exams and tests required for camp, school and employment. A home visit for first-time users runs a rate of $50 and $200 thereafter. Patients can also consult a doctor by phone for $25 and exchange text messages with photos to address conditions such as rashes and insect bites.

Looking ahead to future plans, Pager hopes to expand to San Francisco within the next month or so. After that, it will consider Los Angeles and Chicago as probable sites for expansion. Keep an eye out for a full regional launch list come 2016!
