INDIA – Healthcare startup MFine has announced that it has raised US$ 48 million in series C funding steered by BEENEXT and Moore Strategic Ventures alongside other existing investors to build one of the largest virtual hospital in the world.

Specialist Doctors at these hospitals are assisted by MFine’s AI system, which significantly improves their efficiency and effectiveness because they can know about patients’ condition even before they have seen them.

The AI engine can diagnose and triage over 1200 common diseases, as well as read hundreds of health parameters in diagnostic reports, significantly saving doctors time.
