  • Anima’s operating system for clinics resolves 85% of patient inquiries within 24 hours
  • Its latest update has already halved the time that clinics and practices spend on coding, processing and filing documents
  • Future proprietary AI system will propel personalised medicine and treatment plans

We are pleased to announce that Molten has led an oversubscribed Series A funding round of $12 million in Anima, the next generation care enablement platform. 

Molten led the round with participation from existing investors Hummingbird Ventures, Amino Collective and Y Combinator as well as new angel investors including Sidar Sahin, founder of Peak Games.

This investment marks a significant milestone for Anima, as it seeks to redefine how healthcare teams deliver care through its clinical operating system and this funding round will enable the company to accelerate deployment to tens of millions of patients and healthcare professionals worldwide.

Anima launched with its first paying clinics in September 2022, and is now deployed in over 150 NHS clinics in England that provide care to over 1.3 million lives. The company participated in Y Combinator in Winter 2021.

Following a product release in December 2023, Anima has already halved the time practices spend on coding, processing and filing documents.

This year, the company will release the next version of the software (Anima 1.5), enabling unprecedented automation of front- and back-office workloads and even greater interoperability of the data to support digital integrated care in multiple geographies.

Anima 2.0, a high-level abstraction for healthcare and life sciences powered by Annie, the company’s proprietary deep learning healthcare system and clinical co-pilot, is part of its longer-term vision and aims to democratise deep phenotyping and personalised medicine across the entire healthcare domain space. This will not only transform patient outcomes and clinic workflows, but position Anima favourably to unify healthcare and life science pipelines into a single platform.

Inga Deakin, Principal, Molten Ventures added: “Software and artificial intelligence (AI) in healthcare is a rapidly growing multi-$bn sector, but many solutions take time to integrate and realise their potential.

“A key reason why Anima is growing rapidly, is because they can directly and immediately have an impact: to improve operations and efficiency to benefit patients, healthcare teams and healthcare systems. This team understands the relevant workflows, the needs of patients and healthcare workers, and is building a large, scalable engine for change.”

Shun Pang, Co-founder and CEO of Anima, commented: “We’re excited to bring Inga of Molten on our journey. From day 1, it was clear to us that she shared our vision of care enablement, a thesis Inga and Molten have had for years.

“I’m deeply grateful for the special crew we have at Anima. This is a passion project - we’re building what we wish we had as doctors and patients.”
