Tabib Baghdad, an online platform that connects Iraqi patients to doctors, has announced a six-figure Seed funding round through the recently launched Iraqi Angel Investors Network, led by KAPITA and Nass Al Iraq.
Tabib Baghdad was established in 2018, and the platform is available as an app and a website. The company started its operations in Baghdad, and they plan to cover the rest of Iraq in the coming year. Today, Tabib Baghdad has more than 300 doctors on the platform, and they have facilitated more than a thousand bookings. The platform is focused on creating trust between patients and doctors through its review system, allowing users to rate their booking experience after each visit.
Dr. Ali Alkhazaj, Founder of Tabib Baghdad, commented, ‘’We estimate that there are more than twenty thousand doctors in Iraq today, but most patients find their doctors through word of mouth. Tabib Baghdad will allow patients to find a doctor they can trust. COVID-19 has highlighted the potential of telemedicine in Iraq, and this is an area that we are keeping a close eye on.
“With the funding in place, we are looking to optimize our backend technology to make the experience of our patients and doctors more seamless.”
