On Wednesday, mPulse Mobile — a mobile experience-management company focused on consumer health and wellness — confirmed in a statement to the media that it recently wrapped up a $1.7 million investment round (pre-series A) lead by OCA Ventures.
According to a statement from the innovative company, this funding “will enable mPulse to continue its organic growth and expand the sales and client support teams to further support its leadership in delivering mobile population health and member engagement solutions to health and wellness companies.”
In addition to OCA Ventures, other participants in the round included Jumpstart Ventures, Merrick Ventures and individual investors.
mPulse Mobile provides SaaS-based, HIPAA-compliant mobile messaging solutions that enable the secure delivery of health-related information. The mPulse contextual messaging platform improves message relevancy and ultimately engagement, driving significant ROI for the largest health plans and providers in the U.S. The mPulse solution has helped clients reduce readmissions and no show rates, and improve chronic care management, population health management, enrollment rates and medication adherence.
“We’re seeing great demand for mobile engagement solutions as health and wellness companies look to build more consumer-oriented strategies,” Chris Nicholson, CEO of mPulse Mobile, stated in this morning’s release. “With this round of funding and the recently announced acquisition of Archer’s Healthcare Division, we further strengthen our ability to meet and deliver for the market.”
