SheMatters Secures $2M To Launch ‘The Symptom Tracker,’

Medical schools and hospitals nationally, including University of South Carolina, are already adopting the program.

Digital health platform SheMatters, designed to improve maternal mortality in minority communities, has raised $2 million to launch SheMatters’ Symptom Tracker app and expand its Cultural Competence Certification program for providers.

According to a press release, The Symptom Tracker provides expecting and new moms a way to track blood pressure and monitor vital signs and symptoms related to serious complications like preeclampsia, eclampsia, and HELLP (Hemolysis, Elevated Liver enzymes and Low Platelets)syndrome.

“The company’s product offering includes the SheMatters Cultural Competence Certification Program designed to reduce Black maternal morbidity by bridging the gap in communication between patient and provider.”

The program trains medical providers to communicate with and understand Black patients amid systemic inequality. Major universities and hospital systems are adopting the training, helping providers better serve minority communities.

This latest investment for SheMatters brings the company’s total raised to $3.5 million. Backers include the American Heart Association, The Fund, and The Social Entrepreneurs Fund.
