Navina raises $22 million Series B to transform primary care
The Israeli startup uses medically-informed AI to provide primary care physicians with the right information at the right time
Healthtech startup Navina announced on Thursday that it has raised a $22 million Series B funding round, doubling the total investment to date to $44 million. The financing was led by ALIVE Israel HealthTech Fund, with participation from existing investors Grove Ventures, Vertex Ventures Israel, and Schusterman Family Investments.
Navina uses medically-informed AI to provide primary care physicians with the right information at the right time. It distills entire patient histories from different sources, turning thousands of data points into a Patient Portrait, ensuring critical decision-making data is not missed.
The funding will be used to double the company’s local staff, which currently numbers 57 employees. Navina employs 65 people in total and also plans to expand its sales teams in the U.S.
Navina was founded in 2018 by CEO Ronen Lavi and CTO Shay Perera, who were part of the team that set up the IDF’s Intelligence Corps AI lab.
“Our mission, from the beginning, has been to give physicians the time and confidence they need to stay ahead of their patients’ health, and to transform the physician-patient interaction, changing it from reactive to proactive,” said Ronen Lavi, co-founder and CEO of Navina.
