Healthcare AI developer Phelix.ai has closed a $1 million seed round of funding led by Well Health Technologies. Phelix’s technology is used to run virtual assistants that can handle making appointments, filling out paperwork, and other administrative tasks on behalf of healthcare providers.

Toronto-based Phelix.ai essentially provides a virtual assistant for clinics and other healthcare providers. The AI can run a virtual call center, engaging with patients through online chatbots, phone calls, text messages, and even faxes to answer questions, arrange appointments, and bill patients as needed. According to Phelix, up to three-quarters of the time taken up by paperwork and administrative tasks can be reclaimed by doctors using its technology.
