Companies Buy Into Text-Based Primary Care During Pandemic
The Covid-19 pandemic has caused employers to look for ways to beef up their telehealth benefits. One example: A Seattle-based startup offering text-based primary care services landed four new corporate clients this year. 98point6 will bring its text-based primary care platform to Boeing, Chipotle, Circle K and KinderCare, for a total of more than 500,000 employees. The company has a total of more than 3 million users.
What if you could have quality primary care that treats you when you need it and helps you stay healthy—without ever stepping foot in a doctor’s office? It sounds a bit far-fetched to some. But to 98point6 co-founder and CEO Robbie Cape, that system is just around the corner—and the company’s investors seem convinced he’s right.
Led by executives with experience at Microsoft and Amazon, 98point6 announced a $20 million funding round and said it has deals with some of the biggest employers in the Pacific Northwest.
