“The mission of Cloud is to provide the healthcare industry with technologies that will result in safer and more affordable healthcare. Cloud will be the first company of its kind, operating independently to partner with, and support providers with top-tier technology and the information management systems required to compliment electronic medical records and the tools to identify and cut expenses,” said James Nicholson, Senior Advisor to Cloud Medical. James was the original co-founder of Mitek, which ultimately became DePuy Mitek of DePuy Synthes, a Johnson & Johnson Company.
James Nicholson is the newly appointed CTO of Cloud and Chair of M1T Healthcare Capital Partners, a fund dedicated to backing technology enabled Healthcare companies. With the successful close of a $3.4 Million dollar round, Cloud will target facilities in need of technology improvements in primary markets throughout the United States. Cloud plans to optimize case coverage of medical procedures through real time data and video monitoring in healthcare facilities nationwide.
“The current market is incredibly de-centralized with consultants, manufacturers and data technologies all pulling providers in different directions. We are filling the need for support as one single integrated hardware and software technologies company” said Anthony Gude, Executive Director of M1T. “Our goal is to empower the healthcare industry to adopt technologies that will allow them to control expenses and inefficiencies produced by the constant change in policy, patient claims and other liabilities.”
Due to the recent passing of Obamacare and additional regulatory acts such as the Sunshine Act, the resulting burden of compliance and record keeping has and will continue to increase the costs of healthcare for everyone involved. “Transparency is often perceived as costly and impractical within the healthcare industry,” said Steven Schlatmann, Executive Director of M1T, however “The Cloud technology suite is able to offset and control the costs of compliance, enabling better budgetary control to the healthcare services industry and promote transparency.”
“The M1T collaboration with Cloud affirms our commitment to enhance the accuracy, security and delivery of real time data to all parties, including providers, insurers, and regulatory bodies, a tremendously impactful tool amid the debates about the Affordable Care Act.”
