RALEIGH – Raleigh digital health startup VitalFlo has formed a partnership with the Allergy & Asthma Network which opens an opportunity to work with the network’s more than 2 million partners and patients.

Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

VitalFlo focuses on respiratory care.

The partnership means the provision of virtual care services to AAN members with launch expected in early 2023.

“High quality, virtual respiratory health care has been our number one most requested feature for some time,” said Luke Marshall, CEO and founder of VitalFlo. “Through this partnership with a network of respiratory health experts, we will now be able to offer care when and where patients need it: all without requiring any more of our customers’ valuable clinical staff time.”

The partnership is the latest expansion move made over the past year by VitalFlo.

VitalFlo was launched in 2017, quickly earning both a $50k NC IDEA SEED grant and a $75k investment from The Launch Place’s Big Launch Challenge in 2018. The startup has also received funding from the NASA future contest, the North Carolina State Lulu eGames, and the National Science Foundation’s SBIR program, and has participated in both the RIoT Accelerator Program and Techstars.

In 2021, the startup scored $2.14 million in seed funding in a round led by Geekdom Fund and opened a second office in Portland, Oregon.

“As a group, we’ve always been primarily focused on improving the quality of care for patients through early intervention,” said Dr. James L. Sublett, MD, co-founder and Chief Medical Officer of Family Allergy & Asthma. “Being able to bring high-quality care to the patients in their home environment will be a game changer for our most-vulnerable patients.”

VitalFlo offers a variety of pulmonary function testing.
