Encomenda Invests €200,000 to Launch Telemedicine Startup Doctomatic

The fund led by Carlos Blanco and Oriol Juncosa has helped launch this new digital platform, called Doctomatic, for remote management of chronic patients, led by the co-founder of Doctoralia. For its part, Encomenda has been actively involved in other projects linked to the healthcare sector, such as Mediquo.



New project in healthcare. The co-founder of Doctoralia and ambassador of the Barcelona Health Hub (BHH), Frederic Llordachs, has launched Doctomatic, a new digital platform for the remote management of chronic patients. The main investor in the project is Encomenda Smart Capital, the fund led by Carlos Blanco and Oriol Juncosa, as Llordachs explained.

Encomenda becomes the lead investor in this new digital health company, whose headquarters are located on Carrer de Sant Antoni Maria Claret in Barcelona. For the moment, the fund has contributed $234,000 (€200,000) to the company, although Llordachs advances that it will receive another $176,000 (€150,000) more in this initial phase.

“I have been insisting for years that the way of managing chronic patients must change and that this must be supported by cost-effective technological support; that is what we are trying to do with Doctomatic,” explained Llordachs.

For its development, Llordachs has surrounded himself with a team made up of Marcos Bermejo, who had previously worked with him at Doctoralia, and Carmen Pauline Rios, who comes from Limbix, a company specializing in digital therapies for adolescent mental health and which is based in Palo Alto (United States).

Llordachs explained that Doctomatic will not be a tool for all types of patients or all types of healthcare professionals, but is focused on those who are chronic, multi-pathological, often “the most expensive for the healthcare system,” said the executive.

“With our technology we aim to make the patient responsible in the initial phases and create adherence to medication,” says Llordachs, who confesses that they are already starting to work with the first healthcare professionals. Llordachs is co-founder of Doctoralia, a marketplace that connects patients with healthcare specialists.

In addition to being an entrepreneur, he is also an advisor at the Mobile Health Competence Centre in Barcelona (Mobile World Capital Foundation), eHealth director at Aces, member of the eHealth section of the Official College of Doctors of Barcelona (Comb) and since 2012 he has been in charge of Health 2.0 in its Spanish editions.

He holds a degree in Medicine and Surgery and an MBA in Health Management and Marketing from Esade, where he has collaborated with the departments of Business Policy, Marketing and the Entrepreneurship Institute of Esade. His experience in health management includes eight years working in health insurance companies in Spain, in the pharmaceutical industry and five years as medical director of the Cima Clinic in Barcelona.

For its part, Encomenda has been actively involved in other projects linked to the healthcare sector, such as Mediquo. In fact, the fund was one of the main investors in the financing round that this company closed last April, raising $2.7 million (€2.3 million).
