Along with Tencent, an existing investor in DXY, Hillhouse Capital’s early-stage focused GL Ventures also participated in the funding round. So far, the healthtech startup has raised around $680 million in separate funding rounds.

DXY started out as a knowledge-sharing platform for doctors and has over time added a consumer-facing aspect by bringing wellness advice and medical consultation services to the public.

Besides Tencent, existing investors that also participated in the funding round for Shanghai Kyee Technology include DYEE Capital, Royal Sea Capital, Beijing Meihe Zhongbang Technology and Jiaxing Guangrun.
