“As a physician executive at Mayo Clinic, I learned both the challenging complexities and importance of the prior authorization process. That’s why I founded Verata Health and now Humata Health to deliver a solution that combines the power of AI, automation and connectivity between payers and providers to create a frictionless process,” said Jeremy Friese, MD, Chairman and CEO of Humata Health. “With a large and growing customer base of providers already, this investment validates our vision of solving prior authorization on both sides of the proverbial fax machine. Raising this investment from strategic investors that represent some of the nation’s largest and most innovative providers and payers is a testament to our approach and rapidly accelerates our trajectory to have a positive impact for patients and the healthcare system.”
