Solera Health, a Phoenix, AZ-based technology-enabled personalized preventive health network, closed a $4m Series A1 round of funding.
Backers included BlueCross BlueShield Venture Partners, Sandbox Industries and SJF Ventures.
The company, which has raised $7m in total funding, will use the funds to scale its operations for the National Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) as a covered health benefit.
Led by Brenda Schmidt, CEO, Solera provides a marketplace that connects U.S. adults at risk for type 2 diabetes with the over 850 CDC-recognized digital, national or community-based DPPs that help participants make lifestyle changes to reduce the likelihood of developing the disease.
The company’s national model was designed to consolidate fragmented programs and services into one integrated network allowing health plans and medical providers to increase consumer access and participation while lowering associated costs.
Strategic diabetes prevention program (DPP) partnerships include both community and digital health companies, such as HealthSlate, Blue Mesa Health, Noom, Inc., Retrofit, Canary Health, and Weight Watchers, as well as the Black Women Health Imperative and other non-profit organizations.
