Evidation Raises $153 Million to Scale Virtual Health Capabilities of Achievement™ Platform

Evidation Health today announced the close of a $153 million Series E growth funding round to rapidly expand its virtual health programs on Achievement, the largest digital health network in the United States. The round was co-led by OMERS Growth Equity and Kaiser Permanente Group Trust; existing investors including McKesson Ventures and B Capital group also participated.

Evidation will use this additional capital to fuel the expansion of virtual health programs on its privacy-forward Achievement platform, building on its trusted relationships with individuals and its experience synthesizing and analyzing person-generated health data for stakeholders across healthcare. Evidation’s new programs will provide personalized insights and tools to motivate and empower individuals to take evidence-supported actions to manage their health and conditions.

“Achievement has made it possible to rapidly understand health and therapeutic impact with speed and rigor at scale,” said Evidation Co-CEO and Executive Chair Deborah Kilpatrick, PhD. “The next era of Evidation will transform how individuals interact with the ecosystem of care, by providing anyone with evidence-supported guidance and actionable tools to better understand and improve their health. We are now the first company that can help digital health and biopharma companies generate evidence about their treatments, and then enable individuals to use that evidence to take actions to manage their health.”

Achievement is the largest and most geographically and demographically diverse connected cohort in the United States, representing all 50 states and nine of every 10 zip codes nationwide. Evidation works with nine of the 10 largest biopharma companies in the world, along with academic institutions, public health organizations, and medical specialty societies. To date, Evidation has conducted more than 100 real-world studies across therapeutic areas.

Harnessing its experience in research and connection to individuals through person-generated health data, last year Evidation launched its first virtual health initiatives, including Achievement for Heart Health, a first-of-its-kind health program in partnership with the American College of Cardiology to help individuals monitor and improve their cardiovascular health outside clinic-based settings.
