Curogram Closes $1.8M Series Seed Round to Lead Evolution of Two-Way Messaging for the Healthcare Industry  Curogram

Round includes Zuora Founder, Chairman and CEO Tien Tzuo and Over 80 Medical Professionals

Recently praised by Google Health and Samsung Health for modernizing healthcare communications, Curogram, the leading patient-centric universal healthcare messaging platform, announced it has closed an over-subscribed $1.8M series seed round. Investors include tech entrepreneur Tien Tzuo and more than 80 medical professionals, including physicians and healthcare executives. The invested capital will enable Curogram to increase sales and marketing resources.

“Our company’s brisk growth over the past 18 months signals a significant market demand for healthcare communication technology that solves the existing outdated offerings,” said Shayan Nafisi, Co-Founder of Curogram. “We are extremely excited to have attracted such a large group of strategic investors who deal with healthcare communication challenges daily and truly understand the value Curogram provides. Their support will be instrumental in fulfilling our vision of creating the best healthcare messaging platform on the market.”

Curogram provides the following patient engagement solutions with a patient-centric communication model:

  • 2-Way Texting – Offering an intuitive interface, providers and patients can easily communicate through simple back and forth HIPAA-compliant texting, reducing provider phone call volumes by as much as 50%.

  • Appointment Reminders – With the ability to fully customize and personalize messages in up to 10 languages, and average patient response rates of 70-80 percent, providers can use Curogram’s advanced reminders to reduce no-show rates by as much as 75%.

  • Surveys and Ratings – Simple text surveys allow providers to collect real-time feedback, improve their online reputation with regular 5-Star reviews from their happiest patients, and prevent those impossible to remove 1-Star complaints.

  • Multiple Interfaces – Curogram offers an ecosystem of simple user interfaces for offices (desktop HIPAA-compliant web app), providers (mobile app) and patients (simple SMS & mobile app) on one platform.

“In my experience, the most successful startups combine industry expertise with a vision that dares to think outside-the-box,” said Tien Tzuo, Founder and Chief Executive Officer at Zuora, Inc. “I’m excited to see what successes are in store for them in 2020.”
