Fit4D, a NYC-based digital health company focused on people living with diabetes, secured Series A funding of undisclosed amount.
Backers included SJF Ventures, Sovereign Health System and Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Nebraska.
The company intends to use the funds to expand distribution of its innovative diabetes platform across new customer channels and to leverage the platform to improve health outcomes for other chronic diseases.
Led by David Weingard, Chief Executive Officer, Fit4D delivers patient programs through a combination of technology platform and human-based touch points. The company’s clinical team, comprised of dietitians, exercise physiologists, nurses, and social workers, many of whom are also certified diabetes educators (CDEs), focuses on empowering people with diabetes to deliver personalized care with increased member volumes.
The platform provides electronic interactions in patient-preferred modalities (e.g. phone, email, text, web, video, etc.) that address patient-specific issues (e.g. overwhelmed, fear of needles, language barriers, etc.), in the patient’s preferred format (e.g. articles, videos, webinars, etc.) and at the patient’s preferred time of day (after putting children to bed, before work in the morning, etc.).
Clients include pharmaceutical, payer, provider and wellness companies.
Fit4D is also a member of the StartUp Health Academy, a network of digital health companies dedicated to innovation across the globe.
