Social Connection Important as Much as Clinical Care

The healthcare startup company said it plans to use the proceeds to invest in technology, products, services, and data buildout. Additionally, the healthcare company plans on increasing clinical and support-team business growth.

"Vori Health is ecstatic to announce our Series A with the world-renowned healthcare investment team at NEA," said Dr. Ryan Grant, founder and CEO of the company.

"With the funding, we are excited to further develop our platform and better support patients with musculoskeletal pain and injury, while remaining focused on our mission to deliver innovative care that is human-centered and evidence-based."

Roughly 54% of US citizens suffer from musculoskeletal pain and injuries and it is one of the most expensive areas in the healthcare business industry. The startup company is focused on providing a human-centered patient care experience with the help of high-end technology, premium content, community, and multidisciplinary care teams.

"We're thrilled to partner with Vori Health, which is bringing a clinically differentiated care model to the $300B musculoskeletal space. We've closely followed the ongoing shift to value-based care, and Vori's all-inclusive, evidence-based, tech-enabled solution is well-positioned for continued growth,” said Mohamad Makhzoumi, a general partner at NEA.

Makhzoumi will be joining Vori’s board of directors, which currently includes its Chief Medical Officer and co-founder Dr. Mary O'Connor, AlleyCorp partner Dr. Brenton Fargnoli, and CEO Dr. Ryan Grant.
