Outcome Health ditches bootstraps, raises $500M at $5B valuation

Bootstrapped since 2006, Outcome Health just became one of the best-funded companies in our tech ecosystem’s history. The Chicago healthtech company, which helps patients get better by providing actionable health information at the point of care, announced on Wednesday that it has raised its first round of funding ever at a valuation of more than $5 billion pre-money. With more than 150 open positions and plans to expand its engineering and product teams both at its Chicago headquarters and in New York City, Outcome Health is providing a healthy boost to the Chicago tech ecosystem.
