iCarbonX Joins Series B Round Investment in the U.S. Patient-Engagement Platform HealthLoop

June 26, 2017, iCarbonX announced that it has joined a Series B investment round in HealthLoop. The integration of HealthLoop’s patient-generated data will advance iCarbonX’s data mining technology and helps further establish its visionary digital life ecosystem. Other HealthLoop investors include NextEquity, Lafayette General Hospital through its Health Innovation Fund, Canvas Ventures, and Summation Health Ventures. HealthLoop has raised a total of $8.4 million, which will be used to expand its market and boost its business teams. 

“The investment in HealthLoop is in line with our strategic planning. The big data era of life sciences has just been launched, whereas a lot of previously dismissed healthcare data has just begun to show its significance. The HealthLoop platform has done an excellent job in connecting patients and doctors, tracking patients’ recovery process and mining patients’ data. All of these are essential components of iCarbonX’s digital life ecosystem,” said Jun Wang, founder of iCarbonX. 

HealthLoop, a world-leading platform for automated doctor-patient interaction, was established by Dr. John Shlain in 2009. It helps to digitally connect patients with their doctors and caregivers. It also enables automated patient care coordination by providing its users with clinical information and post-hospitalization follow-up care plans. 

HealthLoop’s platform is designed to keep track of patients’ illness. It uses an analytics engine to provide real-time analysis of all sets of patient-generated data, so as to allow the medical and nursing team to commit their time to those patients and medical issues most in need. In this way, the platform pushes the doctor-patient relationship to go beyond the clinic, and facilitates boundary crossing between different groups. It not only saves doctors’ time but also improves diagnostic outcomes. 

“When patients return from hospitals to the real world, they will be confronted with a whole series of problems that influence their post-hospital recovery in ways that are difficult to predict," explained John Shlain, founder of HealthLoop. "But if we build a relationship with them, we can be there throughout the process to support them. And the further we can take that, the better it will be for patients’ lives and the better the outcome will be. The important thing is that the technology exists. What we’re looking for is the imagination and the right healthcare players to recognize that opportunity and embrace it."
