MemorialCare joins $16M funding for care process automation platform

Twistle, a startup offering automated communication, information-gathering and patient education services to healthcare organizations, announced Oct. 29 the close of a funding round co-led by the Long Beach, Calif.-based MemorialCare Innovation Fund.

The $16 million Series A round will help accelerate Twistle's expansion to more health systems and life sciences companies and facilitate further development of automated services to support and streamline patient-provider interactions.

"Large health systems are confronted with a dizzying array of apps to educate and guide patients, each targeting a different disease or condition, with a unique app experience," Brant Heise, managing director of the MemorialCare Innovation Fund, said in the announcement. "Twistle enables health systems to eliminate many point solutions and consolidate on a single platform that integrates with the existing IT ecosystem. Allowing patients to engage through messaging standardizes their experience and makes adoption simple."
