Pearl Health raises $75M Series B led by a16z to accelerate growth and innovation in value-based care.
NEW YORK CITY, Jan. 26, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Pearl Health, a leading technology company focused on physician enablement and risk-bearing in value-based care, today announced that it has raised $75 million in its oversubscribed Series B funding round, led by Andreessen Horowitz’s Growth Fund and Viking Global Investors, with participation by AlleyCorp, SV Angel’s Growth Fund, and other leading investors. The round comprises $55 million in equity capital and an anticipated $20 million in a line of credit, bringing Pearl’s total funding to date to more than $100M.
“We are grateful to have the support of such esteemed investors as we continue to build technology that enables physicians to provide better care for their patients and helps our healthcare system transition from volume to value,” said Pearl Health Co-Founder and CEO Michael Kopko. “This latest round of funding, combined with our previous investments, will allow us to expand our network and accelerate the development of innovative solutions that place providers at the center of healthcare delivery and cost management.”
Pearl Health’s technology uses data science to help primary care providers focus their attention on the patients most likely to need it, enabling physicians and clinical staff to move toward a more proactive care model that allows them to invest in preventative care and provide more holistic, personalized treatment.
“Pearl Health arms providers with data insights and superpowers to help them manage the health of an entire patient panel,” said Vineeta Agarwala, Andreessen Horowitz General Partner, Bio + Health, and Board Director for Pearl Health. “We believe this technology should enable providers across the country to be at the forefront of our healthcare industry’s transformation towards value, achieving improved outcomes and lower total cost of care.”
Over the past year, over 800 primary care providers across the country partnered with Pearl, resulting in more than 10x year-over-year growth and expanding the company’s reach from 10 to 29 states. This growth reflects a powerful trend in healthcare toward physician enablement technology and programs that help providers perform in new value-based care payment models.
“Pearl Health has done a great job of developing software to help providers achieve their goals around value-based care,” said Scott Kupor, Managing Partner at Andreessen Horowitz, who recently joined Pearl Health’s Board of Directors. “This new round of funding will help them significantly expand their market presence and bring their solution to a much wider audience.”
With this new round of funding, Pearl Health is well-positioned to expand its reach within primary care, develop new partnerships, broaden the offerings it makes available to its provider partners, and invest more in research & development to accelerate innovation.
“Patients deserve medicine aligned with their true needs,” said Pearl Co-Founder and Executive Chairman Jeffrey De Flavio, MD. “Pearl’s physicians have the tools to deliver more effective and compassionate care.”
“We are proud to support companies like Pearl Health that have the potential to drive positive change and disruption in their industries,” said AlleyCorp Founder and CEO Kevin Ryan. “We are excited to see Pearl Health’s impact on patient outcomes and are proud to be a part of their growth since day one.”
