Aflac Corporate Ventures, the investment arm of Aflac Incorporated, has announced a strategic investment in digital health company Sharecare. The Atlanta-based company’s total funding now exceeds $425 million following this investment.
“To date, we have invested nearly half a billion dollars in our platform, and we will never stop innovating,“ Jen Martin Hall, senior vice president of corporate communications at Sharecare, tells Hypepotamus. “With each strategic partner we add to our investor roster, we continue to scale our company and platform for the future.”
The digital platform allows users to get answers to all of their health questions in one place. Users can use Sharecare’s mobile app to ask health questions; the app then connects them not only to doctors, health information and services online, and but to community resources they can access closer to home as well.
Sharecare also helps health providers, health plans, and employers effectively scale health and wellness solutions for the people they serve. This investment serves as the culmination of the digital health company’s months-long effort to find strategic partners that can help them ramp up its fight to improve health outcomes in Georgia.
