Women’s care company Tia secures an undisclosed amount of funding from Pivotal Ventures, bringing its total funding to $150 million. (Based on past funding rounds, Pivotal’s investment is likely less than $23 million.)

Tia, which launched in 2017 as a text-based women’s sexual health and wellness app, now operates membership-based virtual and in-person clinics for patients in California, Arizona, and New York.

Research and Innovation

Patients prefer text messaging to phone calls when it comes to communicating with providers, according to a patient perspectives survey of 1,200 people. The survey also found that patients will give their physicians just two chances before looking elsewhere for care, and that 75% of patients research potential providers online before booking appointments.



Northeast Surgical Group (MI) notifies patients of a January data breach involving “suspicious activity within its network environment.” NSG maintains that it has not found any evidence to suggest patient data was misused by the hackers. DataBreaches.net, however, has determined that the BianLian ransomware group has put NSG files on the dark web.
