Health tech provider Acupera today announced it has raised $4 million in new financing.
Acupera’s system mines data from electronic health records, medical claims, and lab results to provide clinical information to doctors and nurses so that they can provide appropriate care to patients based on their individual needs.
“Acupera offers population health technology that fits seamlessly into existing workflows, supporting doctors and nurses, while improving the way that healthcare organizations care for the entirety of their patient populations,” Acupera CEO Dr. Ronald Razmi said in the statement.
Some of the major partners and customers the company currently collaborates with include the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Columbia University, the University of California San Francisco, Harvard University, St. Vincent Health, Accion Labs, and Hiteks Corporation.
Recently, Acupera’s system has been deployed at St. Vincent Medical Center, a 22-hospital system in Indianapolis, Indiana. At St. Vincent’s, a suite of cloud software services from Acupera is being used to proactively manage patients’ health, including specific health risks such as diabetes.
The latest funding, led by Lightspeed Venture Partners, with participation from Whittemore Collection, will be used to grow the company’s product development team and expand its customer implementation group.
“For our first institutional round of funding, we selected Lightspeed Venture Partners as they understand the pressure our customers are under and the unique solution Acupera offers,” Razmi said.
The company is based in San Francisco. It has raised a total $10 million to date.
