Growth capital round led by Summit Partners, with participation from Oak HC/FT and Sopris Capital
TurningPoint Healthcare Solutions, a leader in advanced clinical and technology-enabled complex care management, today announced a growth capital raise led by Summit Partners, with participation from Oak HC/FT and existing investor Sopris Capital. TurningPoint’s value-based care solution is designed to bring together health plans, providers, and patients to successfully manage complex clinical care for patients, from discovery and diagnosis through recovery. On average, health plans working with TurningPoint have experienced an industry-leading, actuarially validated return on investment of more than 10 to 1, while improving quality and reducing complications and revisions post-surgery by more than 50%.
The new capital comes after seven years of consistent growth within TurningPoint’s established areas of care management, including musculoskeletal (MSK), ear-nose-throat (ENT), sleep, and cardiac care. Leveraging deep clinical expertise, TurningPoint has established itself as a leader in the industry and manages more than 26 million insured lives nationally and $4 billion in healthcare costs. The growth capital will enable TurningPoint to expand into new, high-cost, high-complexity areas of healthcare, enhance its innovative technology and product offering, and expand its geographic footprint.
“We’re proud to have delivered on our mission to improve the safety, quality, and affordability of healthcare. Our proven track record is a validation of our business model, our team’s ability to collaborate with clinicians, and our focus on treating each patient with care, dignity, and compassion,” said Eric Pezzi, CEO and Founder of TurningPoint. “With this new support from Summit, Oak HC/FT, and Sopris, we’re eager to address our next promise: to expand from our current areas of success and enter new clinical domains to address further unmet patient needs.”
Founded in 2014, TurningPoint offers a care management model that is designed to work collaboratively with providers to improve patient outcomes and reduce costs associated with complex clinical conditions. Such conditions incur significant costs in the United States, with an estimated $245 billion in annual direct spend and projections indicating a 9% annual increase in utilization volume through 2030. TurningPoint’s team of clinicians leverage advanced analytics and AI to help determine appropriate and optimal care pathways, safer treatments, and lower costs.
“TurningPoint stands out as a market leader successfully helping manage complex clinical care in a collaborative, comprehensive way,” said Ross Stern, a Managing Director at Summit Partners, who has joined TurningPoint’s board of directors. “The company’s end-to-end patient care solution—partnering with clinicians and key stakeholders from diagnosis through a patient’s treatment and recovery—is demonstrated to be effective and efficient, which we believe is the ultimate goal for patients, providers, and payers alike. We’re eager to see TurningPoint continue to realize significant growth and help to bring better care to millions of people.”
TurningPoint engages constituents across the continuum of care to create transparency and alignment of patients, providers, and payers to drive high-quality, cost-effective patient care. By combining clinical expertise with proprietary technology, TurningPoint’s solutions seek to identify and reduce the utilization of unnecessary high-cost, low-efficacy clinical interventions; drive provider behavior change toward more proactive, preventive treatment options that improve outcomes; and optimize the cost and quality of procedures when they do occur. TurningPoint is certified by the National Committee for Quality Assurance, the Utilization Review Accreditation Commission, and HiTrust.
“TurningPoint is an exceptional company at the center of many important themes in improving healthcare delivery,” said Andy Paul, Founder and CEO of Sopris. “Sopris is proud to have supported TurningPoint early in its journey and are thrilled to welcome and partner with Summit and Oak HC/FT as we enter the next phase of growth for the company.” Sopris will remain an active investor in TurningPoint and retain a board member position.
TripleTree, LLC served as the financial advisor to TurningPoint for this transaction.
