Mirvie raises $60M to develop early preeclampsia detection and more digital health fundings

0

Mirvie, which is developing a blood test that aims to identify risk of preeclampsia before symptoms occur, raised $60 million in Series B funding.

The round was led by Decheng Capital with participation from funds managed by BlackRock, Foresite Capital, General Catalyst, GV, Khosla Ventures, Mayfield and Olympic gold-medalist Allyson Felix. It also included a debt facility with Comerica Bank. 

Mirvie announced it had received Breakthrough Device Designation for its preeclampsia test earlier this month. The startup is also studying using its RNA platform to predict preterm births. 

“Mirvie is a trailblazer in a field desperate for innovation to address the often devastating and costly lifetime consequences of pregnancy complications,” Min Cui, founder and managing director of Decheng Capital, said in a statement. “This funding syndicate is committed to supporting Mirvie’s objective to provide clinicians, expecting parents and babies with breakthrough innovation that makes what is impossible today into a reality.”


Nurse practitioner support platform Greater Good Health raised $10 million in a funding round led by LRVHealth.

Other participants in the round include Martin Ventures, Health Velocity Capital and Optum Ventures as well as angel investors. Greater Good’s platform includes tools for scheduling, professional development, wellness and stress management, and networking with other nurse practitioners. It launched out of stealth in December, and has now raised $13 million in total funding. 

The startup, which currently operates predominantly on the West Coast, plans to use the investment to expand geographically and add services with value-based provider groups, hospitals and health plans.

“Nurse practitioners, along with other healthcare professionals, have felt undervalued and burnt out for years – a sentiment that was exacerbated by the pandemic and continues in its aftermath,” Greater Good Health CEO and founder Sylvia Hastanan said in a statement. “As a result, the nation is facing an alarming shortage of healthcare workers, especially in primary care. To help address provider burnout, it’s important to build and expand systems designed to support healthcare professionals to work at the top of their license.”


ThoroughCare, which offers care coordination software geared toward value-based providers, raised $3 million in funding from Cypress Growth Capital.

The startup offers tools for chronic care management, remote patient monitoring, behavioral health, conducting annual wellness visits and tracking care post-discharge. 

“This capital investment recognizes the mission and value proposition of ThoroughCare to help simplify care coordination and value-based care delivery through digital solutions,” ThoroughCare CEO and founder Dan Godla said in a statement. “Through this funding, we look forward to growing our team and expanding our reach to provide software solutions that enhance clinical and operational efficiency for healthcare providers across the country.”
