Health Wildcatters Alum, Orb Health, Announces $650K in Funding

North Texas startup Orb Health announced today that the company completed a $650,000 round of seed funding.

Orb Health is a recent graduate of the Health Wildcatters accelerator program, and we had the pleasure of watching their pitch back in November of last year.

Orb Health’s HIPAA-compliant platform (simply named, “Orb”) streamlines access to health data and services. The Orb platform distills and translates the huge amount of health data on individuals so that they can both understand and make decisions with that information.

“Orb Health represents the future of healthcare,” said Hubert Zajicek, CEO of Health Wildcatters. “The Orb platform not only optimizes the value of health data for patients and healthcare providers alike, but also enhances engagement between the two groups, improving healthcare for everyone involved.”

Orb Health has established data connectivity to 120 laboratory networks, 30 EMR platforms and more than 150 wearable devices and apps.

The funding round comes from several investors, including Health Wildcatters, Green Park and Golf Ventures, Marco Mena, Michael Cope and others.

“This investment will not only help us implement and support customer on-boarding, but will also make a significant difference as we expand awareness in the market place,” said Orb Health founder and CEO Paul Oran. “It will move us closer to achieving our vision of transforming healthcare by empowering individuals and businesses with the tools to increase connectivity, transparency, awareness and efficiency of healthcare engagement.”
