Amino, a San Francisco, CA-based healthcare transparency company, raised $25m in Series C funding.
The round was led by Highland Capital Management with participation from Accel, Aspect Ventures, CRV, Northwestern Mutual Future Ventures, Pilot Wall Group, and others. With this announcement, Amino has added Michael Gregory, Head of Healthcare Investments at Highland Capital Management, as well as Jacqueline Kosecoff, former healthcare executive and quality expert, to its Board of Directors.
The company intends to use the funds to accelerate development of its platform and expand operations.
Launched in October 2015 by David Vivero, CEO, Amino provides free consumer products that allow people to estimate their costs and book appointments with doctors, hospitals, and imaging centers. Additionally, it enables employers to sponsor enhanced experiences for their employees by connecting them with in-network care and providers to leverage its user experience to power search and booking within their networks.
The company recently added search, booking, and cost estimates for common imaging center services, and has plans to expand into other healthcare needs in the coming months. In addition to its freely accessible website, the company extends the reach of its care recommendations by integrating with nonprofit organizations and health resources such as American Liver Foundation, Healthline, Melanoma Research Foundation, Men’s Health Network, and the National Stroke Association.
