Founded in 2013, Gotcare has partnered with insurers across Canada to assist them in addressing claims and better serving patients. Upon receiving patient referrals from insurance case managers, Gotcare uses its software and unique patient matching algorithms to locate an ideal care aide. Matching is based on proximity, specializations, language, and cultural understanding. Gotcare currently has over 30,000 healthcare practitioners on its platform that can be leveraged to offer recruitment as a service.
“We are addressing a clear need here,” said Sarah Young, co-founder and managing partner at Sandpiper Ventures, in a statement. “Not only do we have a technology that creates a clear path to support that families need, it also will help recruitment efforts in the long-term health sector – building a network of resources that will be essential to overall well-being, particularly of our rural communities.”
Headquartered in Halifax, Sandpiper Ventures is a women-focused venture capital firm. Last August, it closed an inaugural fund at more than C$20 million.
