Cardamom Health is pleased to announce an investment by HealthX Ventures, a digital health-focused venture capital firm also based in Madison, Wisconsin. Cardamom will use this funding to grow its team and expand its data, analytics, and applications capabilities across value-based care, revenue cycle, and other advisory and managed services. This financing will also help Cardamom fulfill its dual mission to 1) maximize the value of data and technology to enable the best outcomes in healthcare and 2) cultivate a diverse team that includes people who haven’t had opportunities in health IT to help build an economy where everyone can flourish.

“We’re thrilled to welcome new partners to the Cardamom family. In a rapidly changing healthcare environment with ongoing financial, talent, and technology constraints, we believe now is the time for a modern approach to services. By melding our diverse and highly integrated data, analytics, and applications teams with innovative technology, we can deliver better results at a lower cost. The additional capital and expertise we’re adding with this raise validates the work we’ve already done and sets us up to do so much more for our customers,” said Vivek Swaminathan, Cardamom’s CEO.

As part of this funding round, Mark Bakken will join Vivek on the Board of Directors. Mark, a serial entrepreneur who previously founded Nordic, has had tremendous success as a leader and an investor. Collectively, his portfolio companies have raised more than $1.1B in venture capital, and he has worked with Eric Schmidt on Novell’s Partner Advisory Group and Bill Gates on Microsoft’s Partner Advisory Council.

”Having been around healthcare IT and professional services for decades, I have a high bar for services organizations, and the strength of Cardamom’s leaders and their team-based approach is incredibly exciting. The healthcare market is in desperate need of a services company that uses automation, AI, and economies of scale to drive down costs. I am confident that Cardamom meets that need and will be a lasting partner for many organizations far into the future.”
