Propeller Health is ready for big things, having just raised $14.5 million and hired an operations chief to lead a new San Francisco office.
Propeller, formerly known as Asthmapolis, hopes to expand its footprint with customers and broaden its portfolio of sensor-laden devices. The company got off the ground with its smart inhalers and paired apps that track use by time as well as location, helping to give users a sense of asthma triggers. Now Propeller is looking to add sensors to all sorts of inhaled medications, MobiHealthNews reported.
The company also snagged former Practice Fusion data sciences associate vice president Chris Hogg as its 1st chief operations officer. His appointment signals a shift toward digital health initiatives that improve patient health rather than merely aim to boost engagement, Propeller CEO David Van Sickle told the site.
The latest funding round was led by new investor Safeguard Scientifics as well as returning funder The Social+Capital Partnership.
