Montreal-based startup Clinia, the personalized health navigation platform, announced a $5 million CAD Seed funding round to scale the growth of its health search infrastructure across North America. The $5 million CAD Seed round was led by AQC Capital with participation from Anges Québec, Groupe Benoit, Kastello, and Formentera Capital.

Clinia enables organizations to leverage first-party health and demographic data to deliver ultra-personalized health navigation, connecting patients into trusted pathways within the health ecosystems of care providers, health systems, insurers, employers, and other health tech startups. Clinia's health search infrastructure currently supports organizations like Teladoc, Dialogue, and Telus Health to deliver personalized health navigation experiences for patients and their care teams.

Simon Bédard, CEO, Clinia."Finding the right resource - whether that be information, support, a care provider - is the important first step in every care journey. Naturally, people trust the existing relationship with their care networks so enabling these organizations to build a trusted ecosystem and be the first point of contact for their needs is key."

Clinia makes it easy for any organization to seamlessly integrate and catalog diverse resources and datasets from internal and third party sources, and implement the personalized Search API to create a unified navigation experience for clinicians, care teams, and patients. In 2021, Clinia delivered over 1 million unique searches across Canada through its platform.

Vincent Dumouchel, Medical Director, Clinia: "The core infrastructure of how patients and their care teams navigate the health system is another legacy industry that is rapidly being transformed by digital-first connected infrastructure. Teams can rapidly build on top of Clinia's infrastructure, enabling any organization to customize their entire patient experience, and deliver trusted patient pathways into care delivery and support."

With this round of financing, Clinia plans to double the size of its 25-person team over the next year, with a continued focus on the expansion of its product, engineering, and data teams as it looks to scale up and meet the demands of the diverse US healthcare industry.
