SEATTLE (March 27, 2019)—Xealth, the leading digital prescribing platform, today announced that it has raised $11 million in a Series A financing round, with new investment from health care industry leaders and investors McKesson Ventures, Novartis, Philips and ResMed. Also joining this round are existing investors Threshold Ventures (formerly DFJ Venture), Providence Ventures, UPMC and Froedtert and the Medical College of Wisconsin Health Network. This investment will fuel the expansion of Xealth’s platform, better connecting patients and doctors.

Xealth enables clinicians to prescribe and monitor digital health care content, apps, devices, and services from within their electronic health record (EHR) charting interface, and to integrate the interaction into a health system’s existing patient portal. These capabilities, along with the ability to onboard new digital care vendors in a fraction of the time, enable the delivery and measurement of digital care solutions to improve patient care.

“With these new partners joining our existing investors and customers, Xealth will be serving virtually every sector of the health care industry—providers, payors, pharma, devices and supply chain,” said Mike McSherry, chief executive officer of Xealth. “The Xealth platform is quickly becoming the preferred ‘digital formulary.’”

Originally incubated and launched at Providence St. Joseph Health in 2017, Xealth works with UPMC, the Froedtert and the Medical College of Wisconsin health network, Baylor Scott and White, Duke and other leading health systems. More than 30 digital health solutions and over a million patient interactions are being prescribed and monitored by these partners to connect patients with educational content, transportation, meal delivery, e-commerce product recommendations and other services needed to improve health outcomes.

“Xealth delivers a win for both patients and clinicians, while driving digital engagement with patients,” said Aaron Martin, chief digital officer, Providence St. Joseph Health. “Clinicians can recommend apps, content, products or services directly from the EMR – dramatically expanding their tool set for improving patient care and engaging patients digitally.”

Xealth’s newest investors will be supporting the application of innovative digital tools to transform multiple segments of the health care industry.

ResMed, a world leader in connected health, has integrated sleep apnea therapy data into more than 1,000 third-party systems, including hospitals’ EHRs, enabling clinicians to access data faster, provide more immediate care and improve patient outcomes. For these reasons, ResMed was an early partner of Xealth at Providence to help care for the 40,000 Providence patients who are using CPAP machines. Physicians use CPAP data to help patients better prepare for upcoming procedures, as well as monitor how well the device is working to maintain health. Xealth enables physicians to see relevant data at the point of care, without requiring a complicated EHR integration.
