b.well Closes $40M Series C to Unify Patient Data


Patient data unification startup b.well Connected Health cut through last week’s tradeshow noise with $40M in Series C funding to advance its mission to solve healthcare’s fragmentation problem.

b.well was founded in 2015 by a former UnitedHealthcare exec whose daughter suffered a near-fatal medical error when two EHRs weren’t connected, and has since raised just under $100M to make sure patients have one-stop mobile access to their data.

b.well’s FHIR-based platform unifies health data, solutions, and services into a single solution, enabling healthcare organizations to offer customizable experiences powered by longitudinal health records and proactive insights.

  • The white-labeled solution integrates data across healthcare providers, payors, labs, and devices, which lets its clients create personalized user flows while allowing patients to access all of their health data within a single interface.
  • b.well then provides tailored content that guides patients to specific actions, using behavioral nudges and plain language explanations to engage them.

The Series C arrives on the heels of a partnership between b.well and Samsung, which gave Galaxy smartphone users control over their longitudinal records and easy access to care from a provider network that includes Walgreens, ThedaCare, and Rise Health.

  • The partnership could also open up a huge market for b.well, considering that Samsung Health recorded 64M monthly users in 2023.
  • As a kicker, Samsung’s former Head of Digital Health joined b.well’s board of directors through the investment, after playing a key role throughout the integration.

The Takeaway

For all of the healthcare industry’s talk about meeting people where they are, it’s still rare that patients know what services are available, let alone how to access them. b.well now has $40M to help it unify health data in a way that makes these experiences possible, while also empowering organizations to stand out in a market where value is increasingly defined by choice and transparency.
