Mahmee, a Los Angeles, CA-based data-driven maternal and infant health tech company building the digital infrastructure to connect the maternal health industry and prevent critical gaps in care, raised $3M in funding.
The round was led by Arlan Hamilton’s ArlanWasHere Investments, with support from Revolution’s Rise of the Rest Seed Fund, with participation from:
– Mark Cuban,
– Serena Williams (through Serena Ventures), and
They joined previous investors Cross Culture Ventures, Acumen America, The Helm, Backstage Capital, Bumble Fund, Pipeline Angels, and others.
The company intends to use the funds to grow its team of engineers, clinicians and sales staff.
Led by Melissa Hanna, CEO, Chief Nursing Officer Linda Hanna, and Sunny Walia, CTO, Mahmee links mom and baby’s health history and data, proactively engages, checks on and monitors patients through “maternity coaches” and escalates concerns to doctors so that mom and baby’s care plan stays up to date and critical red flags aren’t missed. It does this through a HIPAA-secure, online dashboard available to new and expecting parents and their medical providers.
The company has over 1,000 providers and organizations in its network, including Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, AltaMed, Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, UCLA, and more. The proprietary platform has identified and escalated over 1,000 critical care issues, including sepsis, postpartum psychosis, and postnatal hemorrhaging.
In each case, Mahmee’s care management team verifies rising clinical risk, escalates the issue to physicians’ attention, and works with providers to facilitate a course of care; in some cases, a life-saving intervention.
The company works with both private and Medicaid-focused health plans.
