Envera Health raises $14M for patient engagement platform

By Aditi Pai

Richmond, Virginia-based patient engagement company Envera Health has raised $14 million in a round led by Harbert Venture Partners and Noro-Moseley Partners with participation from New Richmond Ventures.

Envera Health offers a program with a number of features including care management, remote patient monitoring, a care coordination call center staffed by Envera nurses, decision support tools, as well as analytics and reporting.

“We founded [the company] on a fundamental premise that health systems were really going to need a lot of support as they migrate from a volume-based reimbursement world to a value-based one,” Envera Health CEO Dan Neuwirth told MobiHealthNews.

“Our view of mobile health evolving — and telehealth as well — is for patients that really need that monitoring in the home care setting, we want to be able to have that level of engagement with that population of patients and have a very effective, streamlined, cost effective remote monitoring capability,” Neuwirth said. “…We are not trying to create our own set of devices. It’s really a proprietary platform that takes commercially off-the-shelf devices and puts them together into monitoring capabilities…It’s very tailored to the patient so it allows us to be patient-specific about care parameters to be able to identify appropriate points of interaction with the patient.”

Envera also announced today that it has acquired two companies, population health company InHealth and web-based clinician portal MedVirginia, from Central Virginia Health Network. Envera said it would use these new tools to improve its care management, health information exchange, and call center management capabilities.
