Ambulatory-focused remote patient monitoring startup Optimize.health announces a $3.5 million pre-pandemic seed round led by Bonfire Ventures.
The Seattle-based company offers turn-key RPM programs that include software, devices, and support. It got its start several years ago as Pillsy, which offered an Internet-connected medication adherence device and accompanying software before co-founder and CEO Jeff LeBrun pivoted the product to remote patient monitoring.
