San Francisco-based ConsejoSano, which makes a health services navigation platform for Spanish speakers in America, has raised $4.9 million in Series A funding in a round led by 7wire Ventures.
The company, whose name means “HealthyAdvice” in Spanish, mainly works with health plans, employers and at-risk providers who are trying to increase engagement from their Spanish-speaking customers, employees, and patients. ConsejoSano’s integrated platform arms clients with multi-channel messaging, care navigation, data analytics and 24/7 access to native Spanish-speaking medical navigators. The latest funding will be used to develop more sophisticated data collection and analytics that will be parlayed into preventive care. While many healthcare and technology companies offer Spanish-language options, like Anthem BlueCross's Spanish telemedicine and messaging capabilities, most function as add-ons to the more comprehensive services offered mainly in English. That's where ConsejoSano wants to set itself apart.
