DispatchHealth, which provides mobile and in-home health services, announced that it had raised $33 million in Series B funding on Tuesday. The latest round is led by prior backers Questa Capital and Alta Partners and adds Echo Health Ventures, which will have a seat on the company’s board.
DispatchHealth aims to reduce ER visits among the 100,000 patients it expects to serve this year and anticipates a savings of more than $100 million in direct medical spending in 2019. It accomplishes this by combining mobile tech with an old-school service: the house call. The company dispatches to its customers’ homes nurse practitioners and physician assistants with emergency medicine experience, armed with mobile blood-work labs, nebulizers, antibiotics and about 70% of the standard equipment found in emergency rooms, to diagnose and treat patients.
DispatchHealth’s latest round of funding will be used to scale the company’s operations and expand its 11 market footprint across eight states to 25 markets over the next few years. The money will also help the company prepare patients for multiple-day treatments in their own homes so they can avoid a lengthy hospital visit.
