Patients are a virtue as London-based Oplinx is getting ready to unveil its app for the world of medical communications.
Oplinx has a waitlist at present – so it’s not quite ready to see you now – but the idea is to be a kind of uplink and provide a communication hub for clinical teams.
The company explains: “Medical professionals don’t need more channels to talk on, and that’s why we are not creating yet another siloed chat app for health workers. We understand that conversations are happening at different places. Oplinx helps you get to time-sensitive information twice as fast as before by pulling all your conversations into one continuous timeline. Talk to your colleagues, whatever app or system they are using.”
The healthtech startup is the creation of Alex T. VanOeveren (CEO) and Diego Larraín (CPO). Their experience is a healthy mix of healthcare and tech ventures in the US and Chile. They both moved to London in February for their Oplinx dream.
Oplinx has already got some interest as it is backed by venture capital firm Antler. The amount of funding received last month was not disclosed.

(Antler is a respected name in the industry and has backed many names over the year. Examples include legaltech entity Legitify and Unlock, a SaaS-enabled marketplace for remote teams.)
In terms of more details about how Oplinx works, its website offers plenty of details.
For instance, users can install an out-of-office reply for when they have time off; and create cases in a chat, for storing all media and conversations about a specific patient.
According to Oplinx, its processes and app meet various security standards in healthcare. The tech startup is compliant with GDPR (DSGVO/AGD), ISO 27001, HIPAA, e‑Privacy, NHS DSP Toolkit and Information Governance, DCB 0129, and NEN 7510, 7512 & 7513.
There is no specific launch date for Oplinx, but no doubt it will be aiming to be healthy, wealthy and wise within the UK’s lively tech scene.
