This collaboration fuels the expansion of a leading source of real-world clinical behavioral health data
CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--$MDRX #healthIT--Veradigm Inc. (NASDAQ: MDRX), formerly Allscripts Healthcare Solutions, Inc., announced today an investment in Holmusk, a global behavioral health real-world evidence and data analytics company, as part of Holmusk’s $45 million series B financing round. The round was led by Veradigm, with participation from current investors including Heritas Capital, Health Catalyst Capital, Novartis (dRx Capital), and Northwell Holdings, the venture investment arm of Northwell Health, as well as other previous investors.
Holmusk will leverage this investment to continue its rapid expansion of its flagship offering, the NeuroBlu Database—a leading source of real-world clinical data for the behavioral health industry.

“Mental and behavioral health is a serious global health problem that has only increased during and post the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Rick Poulton, Veradigm Chief Executive Officer. “Holmusk has proven expertise to create the evidence needed to improve mental health. We are proud to equip the company with the resources needed to advance this important work.”
