Cigna, an American worldwide health services organization, acquired healthcare tech startup Brighter.
Brighter, founded in 2011, works with health service and dental organizations to engage patients and providers in personalized, integrated healthcare experiences through its digital health plan platform. The startup previously raised $49 million from investors including General Catalyst, Tenaya Capital, Benchmark, and Mayfield Fund.
“The acquisition of Brighter accelerates our progress toward establishing us as the leader in the digital transformation of our industry,” said David M. Cordani, president and chief executive officer, Cigna. “Cigna will integrate Brighter’s digital health plan platform capabilities as it continuously develops and releases new end-to-end digital experiences that are designed to create deeper and more successful relationships amongst consumers, provider partners, and health service organizations.”
