Luma Health, billed as “the only total patient engagement platform,” announced it raised more funding to further its rapid growth.

“We’re excited to announce that we’ve partnered with PeakSpan Capital to lead our $16 million Series B round,” announced Luma Heath in a blog statement. “Including further investment from our Series A investors, U.S. Venture Partners and InHealth Ventures, and new strategic investments from Texas Medical Center and Cisco Investments.”

Luma Health CEO Adnan Iqbal, CTO Aditya Bansod, and Chief Medical Officer Dr. Tashfeen Ekram say they founded the company in 2015 after less than pleasant experiences all three had with being a patient in modern health care.

“As we’ve spent more time with patients, doctors, and healthcare teams across the country, we’ve seen the disconnect between patients and clinics — patients really struggle to connect with their clinic, and clinics struggle to simply get a hold of their patients,” they said. ” The one consistent theme we’ve heard after now deploying Luma Health at over 300 clinics is: how can we make it easier for our patients to get started on their care journey and connect with us as they map their personal path to healing?”

Luma Health plans to add machine learning capabilities, deeper integrations to EHR and PM systems, and more optimized ways to get patients through the healthcare process.

Luma Heath is based in San Francisco, California.
