Name of Company: Livongo Health
Location: Mountain View, CA
What it Does: Livongo Health wants chronic diabetes patients to be able to live their lives without being overwhelmed by their disease. The company has created a connected meter that automatically uploads blood glucose readings to a secure website enabling patients to access them anywhere, anytime. Patients can also get help from diabetes coaches who can be contacted using email, text, or a mobile app.
Alerts can also be sent to caregivers and family when blood glucose readings are out of range for each patient. The company recently raised a $44.5 million from Merck Global Health Innovation Fund, Cowen Private Investments, Sapphire Venture, Zaffre Investments, the investment arm of Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts; Wanxiang America Corporation; and others as well as existing investors General Catalyst, Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, DFJ, and 7wire Ventures.
