Cox Enterprise has increased its strategic partnership in the health sector with investment in digital health technology and services provider Rimidi. The digital health solution provider is base in Atlanta and focuses on diabetes and other chronic conditions. Cox earlier this year made another investment in Healthspot, a provider of patient and provider driven telehealth technology.

Rimidi said the investment marks a milestone for the company, paving the way for them to accelerate the expansion of their solution into additional markets.  The Rimidi platform helps physicians to collaborate and patients to better manage chronic diseases.

Rimidi's flagship diabetes management solution, Diabetes+ Me, provides a cloud-based platform where patients can track their health and lifestyle data, as well as obtain medical and nutritional information about their condition.

The care team can leverage the data through proprietary analytics for better decision making for treatment options, population management and improved care.

"We like supporting local entrepreneurs like Lucie, and we are excited to see her transforming our healthcare system for the better," said Alex Taylor, Cox Enterprises' executive vice president.  “Data and analytics will help our communities be healthier and happier – some of the same reasoning that led us to invest in HealthSpot and set up Vivre, a joint venture with Cleveland Clinic."
