CureatrNew York-based Cureatr, which has developed a mobile care coordination offering, raised $13 million in a round led by Deerfield Investments with participation from Cerner Capital and Windham Ventures as well as existing investors Cardinal Partners, Milestone Venture Partners, Partnership Fund for New York City, and JMI Services.

This brings the company's total funding to at least $18.7 million. Cureatr's last round of funding was a $5.7 million deal in October 2013.

Cureatr's newest feature, called Care Transition Notifications (CTNs), pings providers on their mobile devices or desktop computers when a patient transitions to and from acute and post-acute facilities. The patient's care team receives a notification any time a patient is admitted, discharged, or transferred from a facility so that they have the option to call or send a message to the facility taking care of their patient. The app also allows the patient's care team to message each other in a group or individually and access collaborative checklists.

“Cureatr’s mission is to let providers and caregivers know in real-time when their patients are getting care, and to put tools in their hands to respond to critical care transitions," Cureatr CEO and cofounder Joseph Mayer said in a statement. "We launched the first Care Transition Notification network in New York with early hospital partners and are now expanding our network nationally with organizations such as DaVita HealthCare Partners."

The company has announced a few new customers this year including Visiting Nurse Services of New York (VNSNY), which deployed Cureatr's care coordination offering throughout its entire workforce of mobile nurses working in New York City.

Cureatr launched in 2011 and, towards the end of 2012, it joined the New York Digital Health Accelerator's first class.
