Air Doctor Description

Air Doctor connects travelers to local private doctors when they fall ill abroad, preventing unnecessary, often frustrating, and potentially expensive hospital visits, and reducing pressure on emergency care. At the same time, it provides an additional revenue stream for local medical practitioners and reduces claims costs for insurers.
 
The Air Doctor app connects travelers with the most appropriate doctor for their needs – from a global network of more than 18,000 comprehensively-vetted practitioners that spans 61 countries and includes GPs, pediatricians, dentists, ophthalmologists, dermatologists, gynecologists, and orthopedic specialists as standard – to set up an online or in-person
consultation.
 
Founded in Israel in 2016, Air Doctor has raised $10.9 million in venture funding to date, through a $3.1 million seed round in 2018 and a $7.8 million Series A round in 2020.
 
Investors include the AXA-backed venture builder Kamet Ventures and The Phoenix, one of Israel’s leading insurance companies.
