SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Presidium Health, the leading mobile healthcare company for medically complex patients, today announced its Series A round of funding. This round is led by Alethea Capital Management, LLC, with $3.5 million for Presidium to expand its physician-based services and to further its marketing programs.
Presidium was co-founded by its CEO, Dr. Pouya Afshar, a pioneer in the field of transitional care medicine. At the core of Presidium’s service is a best-in-class 24/7 medical triage team, backed by proprietary medical algorithms that guide both acute and chronic disease management, giving patients access to comprehensive urgent care services at home, including delivery of medications, labs, and X-rays.
The medical triage team is enhanced by Presidium’s virtual healthcare platform, Secure Text Activated Triage (STAT). STAT’s simple user interface provides patients with a medical alert device that allows for two-way communication, real-time transmission of vitals and personal health records to a HIPAA-compliant text platform, and optimized in-home medical services based on what’s known as geo-proximity.
