NEW YORK, Aug. 5, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Unite US, a health & human services software company, is revolutionizing how citizens connect with local resources, services, and care, with an initial focus of serving a demographic close to their heart: Veterans and Military Families. The company, focusing on care coordination and the delivery of supportive services, recently secured a $4.3MM Series A round, bringing their total funding to $6.3MM. Investors in the round include Omidyar Network, New York Ventures, Scout Ventures, Granger Management LLC, and previous seed investors.
Unite US’ holistic software-as-a-service (SaaS) care coordination platform provides communities and human service organizations with centralized cloud-based organizational CRM and case management software. The company’s aim is to reinvent the massive human services industry and transform how communities and organizations serve their clients digitally. The software focuses on improving access, collaboration, and care coordination amongst external agencies, which helps communities provide more comprehensive levels of service.
“When we started, we saw massive fragmentation, which increasingly disconnected Veterans and dedicated support organizations. This led us to be laser focused on creating the most streamlined connections between consumers and the services they are seeking,” said Dan Brillman, CEO of Unite US. “We exist to help organizations and communities build scalable and sustainable infrastructure to support the needs of their constituents. With integrated and centralized tools, organizations can be more accessible, operationally efficient, and collaborative.”
Unite US is the exclusive technology provider powering NYC Serves, the first coordinated network of service providers in New York City, with over 40 public and private organizations and 200 practitioners working together to deliver coordinated care for the city’s Military population. The platform allows coordination and secure referrals enabling multiple agencies to serve clients simultaneously, while maintaining accountability, and providing outcome tracking and analytics for the services delivered.
This network model, which has since expanded to North Carolina and Pennsylvania, includes the Department of Defense, Department of Veteran Affairs, academic institutions, non-profits, and private services, all working together to provide a single point of entry for Veteran services.
“We are proud to support the Unite US team in their mission to address the very real and immediate needs surrounding care within the Veteran community,” said Brad Harrison, Managing Partner of Scout Ventures, “Unite US has developed a robust and dynamic platform that provides the tools and resources that Veteran care organizations need in order to more efficiently connect with Veterans and their communities at large.”
Unite US, which has over 1000 users accessing their software and upwards of 100,000+ users on their consumer platform, is looking forward to powering over 25 city and state coordinated networks and help organizations and government use real-time data to measure collective impact and better understand the needs of service-members, Veterans, and Military families.
