About Xealth:

Xealth enables healthcare teams to order digital content and services as easily as they do medications today. Patients can then access these digital health prescriptions from the provider's portal, so that they can actively manage their health - improving both client care, and the doctor-client relationship.

Xealth was incubated in Providence Ventures last year with an open charter to disrupt healthcare. Based in Seattle, the company was founded by the team of serial entrepreneurs behind Swype, an innovative keyboard that shipped on over one billion phones, and Boost Mobile, now Sprint's prepaid mobile service generating over five billion in revenue.

We’re energized by the idea that we can help both doctors and patients be better, and landed an initial investment of $8.5 million last June.
