Ka-ching! $61 million to telemedicine’s Teladoc, Avizia

Two ends of the spectrum. Teladoc, now reputed to be the largest telemedicine company in the US, can now access $50 million in new capital via a $25 million term loan and a $25 million revolving line of credit from Silicon Valley Bank. This is just after announcing the purchase of mobile-app-based physician locator HealthiestYou in a $125 million deal ($45 million in cash + 6.96 million shares of its common stock valued at $80 million.) Teladoc has been on a roll since 2008, with $245 million in funding up through 2015 (Accenture).

Telemedicine startup Avizia, on the other hand, closed a healthy $11 million Series A round from Blue Heron Capital (as lead–CrunchBase) and then announced a partnership with video provider Vidyo to be compatible with their addressable video platform. From a start in telemedicine carts, Avizia now has new apps for mobile devices and secure messaging for doctors within hospitals.
