Orb HealthPhoenix, Arizona-based Orb Health has raised $650,000 from incubator Health Wildcatters, Green Park and Golf Ventures, and others, according to a post from MedCity News.

Orb Health has developed a platform that helps patients and providers access a patient's lab data and wearable device health data. Patients can use the platform to sync data from their wearable devices and access their lab test results -- the company simplifies the results so that patients can understand them better.

Orb Health said its platform can integrate data from 120 lab networks, including Quest Diagnostics, 30 EMR platforms, and more than 150 wearable devices and apps. The service will also show patients how their health has improved over a period of time. The company is working with Validic for the device integrations.

Orb Health said the platform's interface also makes it easier for physicians to review lab results with patients using colorful charts and graphics.

The company was a part of Dallas-based accelerator Health Wildcatters' second class, which started in August 2014.

In June 2014, Health Wildcatters announced that the startups that came out of the program raised almost $5 million in funding. This amount included the $30,000 that Health Wildcatters contributed to each startup, which amounts to $360,000 total.
