The round was led by Khosla Ventures and will help the behavioral health analytics startup continue to grow. Just within the last year, the company has expanded from Cambridge to California, acquired Rock Health startup Pipette, won the SXSW Accelerator and was named a finalist in the 2012 Alzheimer’s Challenge.
“We are at a time of great disruption in healthcare,” said Vinod Khosla, founding partner of Khosla Ventures, in a release. “Ginger.io is at the forefront of data-driven technology and healthcare, with the potential to transform the way we manage chronic disease populations, and we’re excited to help the Ginger.io team drive this transition.”
As Ginger.io Co-Founder and CEO Anmol Madan explained to BostInno earlier this year, “The basic idea is there’s sort of an interesting time where everybody has one of these mobile phones. And these things are incredibly powerful diaries of a person’s life.”
Ginger.io’s mobile application uses an individual’s smartphone to identify the changes in behavior that correlate with his or her health, and the latest version of the platform “provides both a provider team and a patient with health insights based on that person’s behavior.”
