With a new CEO, Health2047 adds funding from AMA as it lays groundwork for 7 spinoffs

Health2047 has raised $27.2 million in follow-on funding from the American Medical Association as it prepares to spin off seven programs. In a phone interview, the new Health2047 CEO Lawrence Cohen outlined the company’s strategy following the group’s first spinoff last year of health data network business Akiri, previously known as Switch.

Cohen explained that the funding would lay the groundwork for spinoffs across four areas:

Data liquidity — breaking down silos of health data;
Chronic disease reduction;
Improving physician productivity; and
Value-based care
