About Leo Health

At Leo, we are looking to build a new type of pediatric medical practice taking technology, experience, and design, and combine it with innovative clinical care to create a different patient care experience for parents and kids. Leo is not a traditional healthcare company; it is a technology, consumer products, and customer service company that is looking to combine consumer technology, smart ops and customer service to create a holistic and cohesive practice experience.

We built Leo to address our own needs as parents and to make it easier to provide great care for our kids.

Leo's first practice is launching in NYC in February 2016.

Product & Service

Leo's mission is to redesign the pediatric medical practice from first principles, which means each interaction point (from booking appointments to paying medical bills) represents part of the user experience we seek to improve. 

From a technology perspective, our core consumer facing interface is our mobile app. At launch, the app consists of five core modules covering five common tasks parents navigate to manage their kids' health:

  1. Appointment booking
  2. Messaging their care team and physician
  3. Accessing kids' health records and information
  4. Submitting and receiving forms (schools, camps, sport leagues, etc)
  5. One-click payments

In addition, Leo has a provider application that allows the providers' staff to communicate directly with its customers, allowing Leo to escalate and route clinical messages to the clinical team as appropriate.

Leo is deploying HIPAA compliant and secure video conference (telemedicine) capabilities, beacon-powered auto check-in, and in-practice kiosks for administrative tasks.

Leo has also built an internal API that integrates its tools directly into practice infrastructure (we use AthenaHealth for Electronic Health Record, Practice Management and Billing Management systems).

Beyond technology, there are interaction 'features' that are not dependent on building proprietary technology, but rather are intended to be material experiential improvements derived from better operations and our focus on customer experience/service. These touch-points include: check-in/check-out, handing of intake forms, house-calls (in specific contexts), prescription fulfillment and delivery, classes and educational content, and more.


Team Story

We built Leo to address our own needs as parents - taking the best of technology, experience, and design, and combining it with the most innovative and highest quality clinical care.

Frequently Asked Questions

Making an Investment in Leo Health
How does investing work?

When you complete your investment on SeedInvest, your money will be transferred to an escrow account where an independent escrow agent will watch over your investment until it is accepted by Leo Health. Once Leo Health accepts your investment, and certain regulatory procedures are completed, your money will be transferred from the escrow account to Leo Health in exchange for your shares. At that point, you will be a proud owner in Leo Health.


What is the difference between preferred equity and a convertible note?

Preferred equity is usually issued to outside investors and carries rights and conditions that are different from that of common stock. For example, preferred equity may include rights that prevent or minimize the effects of dilution or grants special privileges in situations when the company is sold.

A convertible note is a unique form of debt that converts into equity, usually in conjunction with a future financing round. The investor effectively loans money to a startup with the expectation that they will receive equity in the company in the future at a discounted price per share when the company raises its next round of financing.

To learn more about startup investment types check out “How to Choose a Startup Investment” in our academy.


What will I need to complete my investment?

To make an investment, you will need the following information readily available:

  1. Personal information such as your current address and phone number
  2. Employment and employer information
  3. Net worth and income information
  4. Social Security Number or government-issued identification
  5. ABA bank routing number and checking account number (typically found on a personal check or bank statement)

What if I change my mind about investing?

Until a closing occurs, you may cancel your investment at any time, for any reason. You will receive an email when the closing occurs and your shares have been issued. If you have already funded your investment and your funds are in escrow, your funds will be promptly refunded to you upon cancellation. To cancel your investment, please go to your portfolio page.


After My Investment
How can I sell my shares in the future?

Currently there is no market or liquidity for these shares. Right now Leo Health does not plan to list these shares on a national exchange or another secondary market. At some point Leo Health may choose to do so, but until then you should plan to hold your investment for a significant period of time before a “liquidation event” occurs. A “liquidation event” is when Leo Health either lists their shares on an exchange, is acquired, or goes bankrupt.


How do I keep track of this investment?

You can return to SeedInvest at any time to view your portfolio of investments and obtain a summary statement.
