Ginger.io, a Cambridge, MA and San Francisco, CA-based behavioral health analytics startup, has raised $6.5m in Series A funding.
The company intends to use the capital to scale the team and product (http://ginger.io/join-us/).
Drawing on research from the MIT Media Lab, Ginger.io provides a “check-engine light” for a person’s health in the form of an alert that can be sent to a provider, caregiver or individual. The company’s mobile application uses an individual’s smartphone to identify changes in behavior that correlate with his or her health.
Led by Anmol Madan, CEO, Ginger.io is evaluating its system across a number of key conditions including depression, diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
Since raising its seed round just over a year ago, the company has absorbed Pipette and launched a number of important partnerships, including Cincinnati Children’s Hospital’s Chronic Collaborative Care Network (C3N), and Carolinas-based hospital system Novant.
