HealPros has closed a round of Series A funding led by New York-based Sopris Capital. The company will use the funds to expand its mobile diabetic retinopathy program from current ten states to at least twenty-five states in 2016.
Payers that currently utilize the HealPros have noted meaningful improvements in HEDIS and STAR quality scores.“HealPros has secured multiple national agreements with some of the nation’s largest health insurance companies and these payers are looking for HealPros to expand its foot-print to serve their members across the country as quickly as possible,” said Milan Popovich, Senior VP Business Development for HealPros.
HealPros’ service addresses a major pain point for payers in performing annual eye examinations on the non-compliant diabetic population. Payers that currently utilize the HealPros have noted meaningful improvements in HEDIS and STAR quality scores, and many are asking HealPros to consider closing additional gaps in coverage going forward. In that sense, the company will likely offer additional HEDIS gap closure options during next year.
Founded in 2011, HealPros’ offering allows payer clients to reach members who are not regularly meeting with primary care physicians or eye care professionals to perform essential examinations. The service enables mobile diabetic eye examinations in member’s homes, at primary care practices, in multi-specialty health centers, and other venues as designated by payer clients.
