Telemedicine and health care management firm Aligned TeleHealth Inc. announced Wednesday it has secured private funding from two investors to support growth plans.
The Agoura Hills company would not disclose how much it received from Deepak Chopra, chief executive of OSI Systems Inc., in Hawthorne, and Hector Sulaiman, chief executive of Controles Graficos, in Mexico City.
Chopra and Sulaiman have been named to serve as advisors to Aligned TeleHealth’s board of directors.
Aligned TeleHealth provides specialty physician consultation services to about 30 urban and suburban hospitals and emergency rooms nationwide using secure, real-time two-way telecommunications networks.
Aligned’s Chief Executive Nitin Nanda said the investment from Chopra and Sulaiman will help in the company’s evolution.
“We are entering a pivotal stage with respect to gaining significant traction in urban and rural markets by serving an increase in patient visits to acute and critical care hospitals,” Nanda said in a prepared statement.
