Spotted: London and Berlin-based startup Medbelle is building what it calls the first “digital hospital.” The project allows patients to book their medical procedures through a web and app-based platform. After registering, a patient’s details are accessible via a web portal and app. The end goal is a platform where both patients and care providers can access all information from one digital source.

“Our vision is to create a world in which all patients can navigate their treatment journey digitally and receive personal care at the click of a button,” Medbelle co-founder Leander de Laporte told Tech Crunch “There is a massive lack of digitisation and patient care for medical procedures and little sight of someone changing this entirely. This results in a lack of quality and price transparency, bad communication and patients feeling left alone and neglected in their treatment journey.”

Medbelle raised $7 million in Series A funding. Currently, Medbelle only works with private patients, but it is hoping to collaborate with the NHS and more insurance providers in the future.
