Digital MSK startup IncludeHealth scores $11M and more digital health fundings

Digital musculoskeletal (MSK) health company IncludeHealth announced it had raised $11 million in a funding round led by CincyTech with participation from Tamarind Hill and other investors.

The company said it would use the funds to expand MSK-OS, its virtual care platform for delivering musculoskeletal care and physical therapy. Late last year, IncludeHealth announced a partnership with Yale New Haven Health System to offer a hybrid MSK care model for the system’s patients using the platform

In addition to the funding round, the startup said it had hired Ray Shealy as COO and added Grant Koster, who served as senior vice president of operations, partner and general manager of Athletico Physical Therapy, to its board of directors. 

Madrid-based Senniors, which provides home care services for older people and others who need support, raised $5.6 million in seed funding. 

The round was led by SixThirty, with participation from Sevenzonic, KIMPA, Zubi Capital and Invertidos. The startup offers home-based care that includes physical, speech and occupational therapy, mental healthcare and nutrition counseling.

“Senniors’ approach blends technology and personalized care to address two of the most important challenges facing our time: the acceleration of an aging population, which is multiplying the need for this type of care, as well as the health challenge, which requires a sustainable model for health care and long-term care facilities for elderly and dependent people,” Ángel Cano, president of Sevenzonic, said in a statement. 

Health benefits startup Thatch announced it raised more than $6 million in total funding across a pre-seed and seed round.

The seed was led by a16z and GV, with participation from strategic investors including Lux Capital, Quiet Capital, Not Boring Capital and BrightEdge. The company, which gears its services toward other startups, said it offers benefits to supplement health plans, like a Health Savings Account, a debit card for healthcare expenses and access to experts who can help resolve billing issues. 

“Thatch is building a smart and original solution for the long-standing healthcare financial crisis in our country, in the form of an exciting new application of financial technology,” Julie Yoo, general partner at a16z, said in a statement. “We’re proud to be backing this exceptionally talented team of healthcare and fintech experts to tackle this problem.”

Previa Medical, a French company developing an algorithm that aims to alert providers to early signs of sepsis, raised $2.2 million in seed funding.

The round included participation from Kreaxi, M2care, Veymont Participations, Hopla Memory, CCI Capital Croissance, Holding Seraip, Bpifrance and BNP Paribas, with equity and debt financing from Banque Populaire AURA.

The company said it would use the capital to run a multicenter clinical trial for its sepsis risk system, called SEPSI-SCORE, and hire new team members to prepare for a potential commercial launch.
