mPulse Mobile raises $10M for its mobile engagement platform


mPulse Mobile has raised $10 million in first close of Series A funding round led by HLM Venture Partners led, with participation from OCA Ventures, Merrick Ventures and Jumpstart Ventures. It will use the funds to enhance its analytics and behavioral models in order to help its clients improve outcomes.

The company’s Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) offering helps health plans, pharmaceutical companies and providers reduce readmissions, eliminate gaps in care, and improve medication adherence through more effective patient/member engagement. Speaking of engagement, mPulse’s mobile-enabled platform leverages insight-driven workflows to create a real-time interactive dialog with consumers across an enterprise, regardless of their medical condition.

“Our sole focus on healthcare combined with extensive experience delivering mobile consumer solutions makes us the ideal partner for companies who need provider, plan, pharmaceutical and population health solutions,” Chris Nicholson, CEO of mPulse Mobile, said in a statement.

One of mPulse’s clients is Inland Empire Health Plan (IEHP), a not-for-profit, rapidly growing Medi-Cal and Medicare health plan serving over 1.1 million members in California. IEHP partnered with mPulse to enable an ongoing mobile dialog with its members to improve engagement and health outcomes.
