Quartet, a technology platform that serves to bridge the gap between primary care and mental health providers, has raised $40 million in a series C round of funding led by F-Prime Capital Partners and Polaris Partners, with participation from existing investors including GV (Google Ventures) and Oak HC/FT.

Founded out of New York in 2014, Quartet offers a collaborative platform designed to connect physical care providers with those in the mental health fraternity, thereby improving a person’s overall wellbeing, while the platform also links in with insurance companies. The general idea is this: When you’re trying to manage an injury or illness, it can have a knock-on effect in terms of how you’re feeling mentally. Quartet wants to help foster a more holistic health care approach.

Quartet currently serves just a handful of markets across the U.S., including Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Louisiana, Washington, Northern California, and New Jersey. Prior to now, it had raised $47 million, and with its latest cash injection it said that it plans to double down on its expansion plans across the U.S., while also investing in engineering and its product roadmap.

“Making collaboration between primary care physicians and behavioral health specialists work is a must if we are ever going to improve the overall health of our country,” noted Quartet founder and CEO Arun Gupta. “The bridge between mental and physical health is being built, and it’s technology that’s leading the charge.”
