BaseHealth, a predictive, evidence-based, and data-driven population health management solution that targets the unknown risk by identifying the “Invisible Patients” has raised $8.5 million in Series C funding led by HBM Healthcare Investments. The Sunnyvale, CA-based digital health startup plans to use that latest round of funding to further develop BaseHealth’s analytics engine, which is based on peer-reviewed medical literature, curated by physicians and scientists, and enhanced with laboratory, biometric, social, family history and behavioral data
The data is then passed through the analytics engine which uses machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) to identify markers and assess patient risk for 43 possible disease threats. By addressing the rising unknown risk and finding the “Invisible Patients,” the ones who look healthy on paper until they hit a medical tipping point. With the right medical intervention at the right time, their healthcare trajectory can be improved. The tool enables health systems like Banner Health to improve care and reduce the per capita cost of healthcare.
“Healthcare systems have a lot of data and yet they still have a hard time finding these patients, making it hard to respond proactively to patient care needs,” said Jason Pyle, CEO, BaseHealth. “Our system enables healthcare professionals to assess the unknown risk that exists within their patient population and provide access and critical care needed to both improve our overall population’s health and improve the individual patient’s experience with the healthcare system.”
