Earlier this month, student telehealth service company Hazel Health raised an additional $33.5 million dollars in funding. Investors in the quickly growing startup include Bain Capital Ventures, The UCSF (University of California San Francisco) Foundation Investment Company, and most notably, Centene Corporation, a large managed care and healthcare organization.
Hazel Health’s goal is to provide on-demand telehealth services to students. For schools, it explains its 4 step model:
- “Partnership: Hazel partners with school nurses and health services to expand healthcare services at school.”
- “Training: School nurses and staff are provided instruction to initiate appointments with students in need of care. This includes logging on the easy-to-use technology and taking basic vitals.”
- “Tools: Hazel provides all needed equipment for care; scale, thermometer, medical cart, iPad with stand, over-the-counter medications and more.”
- “Parent Information and Consent: Hazel works with schools to educate parents about the program. Parents decide whether to participate.”
