SANTA MONICA, Calif. — PatientPop, the market leader in practice growth technology, today announced it has secured a large growth capital round, led by Leerink Transformation Partners (LTP), one of the top healthcare investment firms in the country. The new financing will enable PatientPop to accelerate expansion of its go-to-market capability and continue to innovate in the new category of practice growth.
With the new funding, PatientPop has raised $75 million to date, along with prior round investments from Toba Capital and Silicon Valley Bank. “This additional funding enables us to accelerate product innovation and market expansion, and ultimately fulfill our mission of helping practices thrive,” said Luke Kervin, PatientPop Co-founder and Co-CEO.
“Nearly 80 percent of physician and other provider searches begin online today. To grow and remain competitive, practices across primary care, specialty care, dental, and others must update their digital presence and strategy,” said Travis Schneider, PatientPop Co-founder and Co-CEO. “Instead of using outdated and expensive marketing or technology point solutions, more practices are using PatientPop to attract and retain patients. We’re constantly evolving to ensure our customers and their patients benefit from the most advanced technology for practice growth.”
LTP focuses on investing in disruptive and innovative revenue-stage healthcare information technology and services companies. With this funding round, LTP Co-founder and Managing Partner Todd Cozzens joins the board of directors at PatientPop. Cozzens is a healthcare industry veteran, with past CEO and operating and investing experience at Picis, Optum, and Sequoia Capital.
“We’re positioned to help the best healthcare IT and services companies and their leaders accelerate their growth because of our backgrounds as founders, operators, clinicians, and investors,” Cozzens said. “PatientPop is a category leader in healthcare because it gives doctors a new technology platform to grow their practices by optimizing their online presence. It’s a cost-effective solution for practices small, medium, and large, and the strong ROI delivered by bringing new patients into the practice has been proven across thousands of providers. PatientPop is on a fast trajectory to change how practices run and promote their business.”
