The round was led by venture capital firm Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers (KPCB). In conjunction with the funding, Dr. Beth Seidenberg, a General Partner at KPCB, will join Mango Health’s board of directors.

Launched in 2013, the company partners with leading care providers, health plans, pharmaceutical companies and self insured employers to engage patients, reduce repeat visits, lower costs of care and improve clinical outcomes.
To date, it has established partnerships with a leading U.S. integrated care delivery system, a national pharmacy benefit manager and a top U.S. health plan.
