Ottawa-based Cliniconex lands $1 million in funding

Cliniconex CEO Anthony Mar.

E-health software startup Cliniconex has closed a $1-million financing round this month, led by investors Wesley Clover, Calian Group and the Capital Angels Network.

The new round brings the company’s total funding to $1.6 million. In October, Capital Angel Network and Wesley Clover International led a seed round that provided about $500,000 in funding. 

Also this month, the firm began a partner program with Telus Health and moved into a new office at 400 March Rd., several times larger than its prior space, in order to accommodate the company’s growth. Cliniconex says it has doubled its client count since last year.

Founded in 2011 and an L-Spark accelerator graduate, Cliniconex makes software that sends patients detailed reminders of upcoming appointments. It’s a seemingly simple step the company says reduces the number of no-shows dramatically and makes doctor visits more efficient by ensuring patients are better prepared for procedures – for example, by reminding them to bring running shoes to a cardiac stress test.
