SnapMD Raises $600K

Los Angeles-based SnapMD, the startup helping to connect patients with doctors via cloud-based telemedicine software, has raised $600,000 in a seed funding round, the firm said Thursday. The funding came from Shea Ventures, the venture capital arm of J.F. Shea Company, as well as the Whittier Trust. SnapMD is led by Dave Skibinski, and lets patients consult with doctors using video, audio, and text. The company's service is aimed at health care providers, allowing them to schedule consultations with their patients; the company said it is looking to enable both primary care and specialty care consultation.
