98point6 raises $19.5 million in Series B funding and introduces Continuity Care
As we continue our journey of bringing top-quality primary care to your fingertips, we’d like to pause and reflect on the past week. If you hadn’t seen the news yet, we closed a $19.5 million Series B fundraise, bringing our total funding to $35 million. We are ecstatic to have the backing of an incredible group of investors, and we’ll use the funds to accelerate product development, expand the service to all 50 states (plus Washington D.C.) and introduce a commercial product early next year. We’ve been pedal to the metal since we launched two years ago, and this financing round will help us deliver on a new concept we call “Continuity Care.”
What is Continuity Care?
Continuity Care delivers primary care through an ongoing relationship with consumers. With Continuity Care, 98point6 board-certified physicians provide comprehensive guidance in sickness and in wellness—not just episodic care. It encompasses medical questions, diagnosis and treatment, prescriptions, referrals and follow-up, and is based on a thorough understanding of you, the patient.
We will deliver Continuity Care at a cost massively lower than anything available on the market today. It’s a bit too early to talk specifics, but through our use of deep technology, we’re building a platform that will transform primary care.
As our CEO Robbie Cape said last week, “98point6 is creating a new approach to primary care where everyone wins: Consumers, physicians, businesses, payers and provider groups.” It’s a tall order, but we believe we are on the right path, and we’re overwhelmed by the positive response so far. Think of us as a doctor in your pocket—we hope you’ll give us a try.
