AristaMD, a leading digital health company that provides proprietary eConsult solutions that connect primary care providers (PCPs) with timely, documented specialist insights, today announced investments from Ascension Ventures, a strategic healthcare venture firm representing 13 of the nation’s leading non-for-profit health systems, and .406 Ventures, a venture capital firm investing in early-stage disruptive enterprise technology and digital health companies. These investments top off the company’s Series B funding round, which was co-led by Cigna Ventures and MemorialCare Innovation Fund, at $24 million. The new capital will be used to accelerate commercial growth as well as continue the expansion of its proprietary eConsult platform supporting payors and health systems across the country.
“Delivering more timely care to patients has become even more crucial during the COVID-19 pandemic and will remain important in the future, as we must reserve precious in-person specialty appointments for those who critically need them,” said Brooke LeVasseur, CEO of AristaMD. “This additional funding will help us accelerate our vision and contribute to shaping a world where all patients have timely, cost-effective access to health care.”
Designed by practicing physicians, AristaMD’s eConsult solution empowers PCPs to expand their scope and collaborate on patient care with a world-class panel of on-demand specialists. AristaMD significantly increases access to appropriate and timely care to improve outcomes and reduce costs.
“With its innovative solution and industry-leading team, AristaMD is positioned to make a considerable improvement in the way health care is delivered,” said John Kuelper, managing director of Ascension Ventures. “AristaMD has built a highly scalable solution that continues to deliver tangible ROI for health systems and payors, and improves the level of care for all patients.”
