SEATTLE – 98point6 has raised $50 million in new funding to scale its text-based primary care service, grow its physician teams and expand the capabilities of its platform. The company has raised a total of $86.1 million since its beginnings in 2015. “We set out to make primary care accessible and affordable for everyone, to address a crisis in America that has led to nearly one-fifth of the population not having a relationship with primary care,” said Robbie Cape, CEO and co-founder of 98point6, in a statement. “The phenomenal demand we’ve seen in just a short period of time reaffirms the need for 98point6, and this latest investment will enable us to deliver on our vision, driving deep engagement with our patients and empowering them to take control of their health.” 98point6 combines artificial intelligence with board-certified physicians to deliver care to a patient’s smartphone. The technology automates and completes tasks that don’t require direct physician interaction, allowing them to focus their time on treating more patients. The new funding will also allow 98point6 to expand into new markets, including health plans, health systems and higher education, said Cape.
