Lumiata Raises $4 Million in Series A Financing from Khosla Ventures

The World’s First Medical Graph Aims to Revolutionize Health Care with Big Data Driven Medical Science and Predictive Analytics

San Mateo, California – January 8, 2013 – Lumiata, a provider of predictive analytics around medical science and patient data, announced today that it closed $4 million in Series A financing from Khosla Ventures. This funding will be used to refine and commercialize the health care industry’s first medical graph-­based predictive analytics engine, which is currently being piloted by major hospital networks and health insurance carriers to deliver better­informed patient care.

“There is little debate that health care delivery is lacking today – both in its quality and its affordability. Lumiata has created a new predictive engine to help turn the practice of medicine into a science,” said Vinod Khosla, founder of Khosla Ventures, a leading investor in transformational health care. “Lumiata’s medical graph helps providers ensure they’re giving the right care, at the right time, from the right person so they can deliver better value-­based health to more patients.”

Formerly known as MEDgle, Lumiata’s mission is to democratize medical science so that all kinds of medical staff – from advice nurses, to physician’s assistants, to doctors – can apply higher quality health care at a lower cost. The company collects massive amounts of medical science data, organizes it in rich, inter­-connected graphs similar to Facebook’s social graph, and produces key insights for patient care. Health providers can run anonymized medical records, genetic information or sensor data through Lumiata’s graph to receive hyper­-personalizedpredictions and recommendations for individual patients.

With instant access to Lumiata’s real­-time predictive and prescriptive analytics regarding symptoms, medications, risk factors and diagnoses, first­-line staff can elevate their day­-to­day care. The engine’s guidelines and protocols help nurses easily determine what questions to ask a patient and make knowledgeable decisions before and during a patient visit, such as which labs to order or which procedures to recommend. This approach also maximizes doctors’ productivity by marshaling the finest medical science at their fingertips, so they can determine diagnoses and treatment plans earlier and faster than ever before.

“We believe that data­-driven medical decisions can drive high quality, optimized care at a much lower cost,” said Ash Damle, founder and CEO of Lumiata. “At Lumiata, we’re providing the best of medical science on-­demand with a ‘GPS’­-like health navigation system. First we triangulate an individual’s health, and then we calculate their best routes to getting and staying healthy. These small, but life­-changing insights are the result of lots of sophisticated big data science.”

Behind the scenes, Lumiata’s technology ensures accurate health care predictions by combining the brilliance of the best physicians with the analytic power of big data. The company has crunched over 160 million data points from hundreds of relevant sources – including over seven million pages from textbooks and medical journals, and more than 100 gigabits of public data from the Centers for Disease Control, the National Institutes of Health, the World Health Organization and more – and spent over 20,000 physician hours to confirm the quality of its resulting insights. Its algorithms turn raw data about tens of thousands of symptoms, diagnoses, procedures and medications across ages, genders and lifestyles into curated, usable bigknowledge to dramatically improve the delivery of health care.

Lumiata’s real-­time predictive analytics are available via Application Programming Interfaces (APIs). These APIs can be used to pull both aggregate and specific patient insights into the systems, devices and daily workflows that hospitals and insurers already use during patient interactions. In the future, Lumiata will also leverage its medical graph to give individuals the data they need to optimize their own health and wellness every day.

Lumiata’s management team and advisory board include board­-certified physicians, data scientists, and evidence-­based medical researchers. Its CEO, Ash Damle, founded the company to synthesize fifteen years of research on applying practical artificial intelligence. His background includes developing web-­scale artificial intelligence solutions at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the U.S. Navy, California’s Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation and J.Crew. In addition, Euan Thomson, investment partner at Khosla Ventures, is joining the company’s board of directors and brings over fifteen years of experience as a scientist, physicist and researcher in the United Kingdom’s health care system.
About Lumiata

Founded in 2013, Lumiata (formerly MEDgle) applies big data­-driven medical science to patient data in order to optimize every health care interaction. The company delivers real­-time predictive analytics that help hospital networks and insurance carriers provide higher quality care to more patients in less time. To produce accurate insights and predictions related to symptoms, diagnoses, procedures and medications, Lumiata developed the world’s first medical graph, which organizes and analyzes hundreds of millions of valuable data points. Lumiata is a venture-­backed company based in Silicon Valley and composed of clinicians, data scientists, and experts in care delivery. More information is available at www.lumiata.com.

HealthcareScene.com Announces Acquisition of Leading Healthcare IT Job Board and Blog

LAS VEGAS, November 13, 2013 – HealthcareScene.com announced today that it has acquired HealthcareITCentral.com, a well-known and respected healthcare IT industry job board, and HealthcareITToday.com, an established blog focused on healthcare IT workforce and career development. The two websites will join the HealthcareScene.com network of 15 blogs, adding significant career-focused tools and resources for HealthcareScene.com’s sizable and rapidly growing audience of healthcare IT professionals.

John Lynn, founder of HealthcareScene.com, explains the factors that led to his acquisition decision:  “Workforce development is such a key part of the success of any EHR project.  When we saw what had been created by HealthcareITCentral.com, we knew we had to find a way to bring the two companies together.  Plus, we were happy to find in HealthcareITCentral.com and HealthcareITToday.com an industry leader with an impeccable reputation who approached business with the same ethics and vision that we do.

HealthcareITCentral.com has long been the preferred job board for top companies such as Beacon Partners, First Choice Professionals, Cipe Consulting Group, CTG Healthcare, Holland Square Group, Healthcare IS, and many others.  Additionally, top universities such as the University of Illinois at Chicago and Duke University have relied on its reach and reputation to help spread the word about their Informatics programs.  With this solid foundation, it’s a great platform, with limitless potential for future expansion.  In fact, since the acquisition closed, top Health IT consulting companies ESD, Encore Health Resources, and Cordea Consulting have started working with HealthcareITCentral.com as well.  I’m excited about providing our readership with the considerable tools offered by this acquisition.”

The goal of HealthcareITCentral.com founder Gwen Darling was to build a career portal that provided an unparalleled user experience for both healthcare IT candidates and employers.  “For the last 4 1/2 years, we’ve worked to build resources that made it easy for candidates and employers to connect, keeping in mind all along that the most important component of workforce development is the ability to make quality, relevant relationships on both sides of the hiring equation.

I always knew that the next step would be to find a larger healthcare IT network that had the ability to cast a much wider but still highly targeted net.  However, I’m protective of our excellent reputation and user experience, and so I waited to find an organization with a similar vision and focus before considering an acquisition.   HealthcareScene.com more than delivers on all counts, as both John Lynn and his network come with the highest recommendation.  I’m confident that our clients and candidates will be very happy with what comes next.”

BetterDoctor Raises $2.6M Seed Funding

BetterDoctor is doctor-finding service based on hundreds of public and private data sources. We have 1 million doctors in our database and have helped 4 million people to find a quality doctor.

We have raised $2.6M in seed funding to grow into a matchmaking service for patients and doctors.

The founder’s story

In 2011, my family experienced a series of life-changing medical emergencies which required a team of over 15 doctors and specialists. Unfortunately, finding those specialists was a huge time sink.

I soon understood the pain of the 70+ million Americans looking for new doctors every year – and soon even 30 million more people because of Obamacare. There simply wasn’t a good way to find quality doctors.

Drawing on a background in gaming and technology, my co-founder Tapio Tolvanen and I both left our positions at Nokia to found BetterDoctor. I used to lead Nokia’s App Studios, Tapio was Chief Architect and Head of Technology. We studied the problem closely, built a team and a system to solve it, and launched BetterDoctor a year ago.

Since debuting at TC DISRUPT in 2012, over 4 million people have used BetterDoctor to search for high-quality doctors in their area and insurance network. Today, almost 1 million people rely on BetterDoctor each month to find new doctors. We’ve designed a beautiful mobile web experience to make it available on all devices.

About BetterDoctor, the product
Designed to complement traditional user-generated ratings and reviews, BetterDoctor draws on an array of public and privately available quality indicators to rank every doctor in the United States.

A few of the factors we examine–which most people either don’t have access to or typically look for–include:

  • Experience
  • Education
  • Medical licensing
  • Board certification
  • Judicial sanctions
  • Professional and referral network

BetterDoctor’s Funding
We are very excited to have a great mix health and consumer web investors join the mission! The $3.6M Seed round was led by SoftTechVC and Burrill & Co. Jeff Clavier from SoftTechVC, Dirk Lammerts from Burrill & Co and Kristian Segerstrale from Initial Capital joined the board.

Practice Fusion Closes $70 Million Round of Funding

Ryan Howard, CEO of Practice Fusion just sent out the following email about the $70 million round of funding they just raised:

Practice Fusion’s mission is to connect doctors, patients and data to drive better health and save lives. Today, a new $70 million investment ensures the delivery of our mission to the masses.

This new funding comes from the most significant technology and life science investors in the country. The investment was led by Kleiner Perkins Caulfield & Byers, a fund famous for backing Amazon, Intuit and Google. Dr. Beth Seidenberg will join our Board of Directors from their team, bringing her extensive experience as a physician and clinical researcher.

We’re now the No. 1 EHR in customer satisfaction according to Brown-Wilson, and we value your commitment in getting us here.

In the past few months, the product has evolved faster than any other system on the market, updating workflows for referrals, superbills, and allergy workflows, as well as connectivity to dozens of new labs and imaging connections. We’re dedicated to a “product first” focus—constantly working to make the EHR easier to use and more powerful for your practice. You have our commitment that this will continue at an even faster pace.

Next, we’re working to ensure your EHR is Meaningful Use Stage 2 certified and to also help you navigate the new world of Accountable Care Organizations.

It is anticipated that the Vitera and Greenway businesses will continue as Greenway Medical Technologies with the products and services of both Greenway and Vitera marketed under the Greenway brand. After closing, the two businesses will continue together to deliver best-in-class solutions and services, and enhancement of existing product platforms to ensure customers have the tools they need to address payment reform models and meet regulatory requirements such as Meaningful Use Stage 2 and the transition to ICD-10.

Greenway will continue to have headquarters and principal operations in Carrollton, GA, Tampa, FL and Birmingham, AL.

“This transaction presents an opportunity to offer even greater value to our customers,” said Matthew J. Hawkins, President and CEO of Vitera. “Combining our business with Greenway Medical Technologies demonstrates our intense focus on growth and our commitment to provide current and prospective customers with proven, integrated and easy-to-use solutions they need to grow profitably, increase practice efficiencies and improve patient outcomes in this ever-changing healthcare environment.”

“We are excited that the transaction will accelerate the execution of our clearly defined strategy of leading the electronification of healthcare, engaging consumers in the management of their own health and continuing to partner with providers to develop the tools to improve population health,” said Tee Green, President and CEO of Greenway.

Greenway’s platforms are consistently recognized for ease of use at the point of care, which has led to high adoption rates among care providers, as well as having an industry-leading interoperability strategy that promotes the flow of data across healthcare systems. Greenway’s clinically driven revenue cycle management platform enables providers to thrive while participating in evolving and increasingly more complex reimbursement programs that are based on clinical outcomes.

Vitera’s first-place EHR ranking from independent researcher Black Book Market Research, LLC and recent Customer Value Enhancement Award from Frost & Sullivan underscore the value of Vitera’s industry-leading solutions and services. Vitera’s portfolio of highly interoperable EHR and practice management solutions is ICD-10-enabled, certified for Meaningful Use Stage 2, and approved for pre-validation as a Patient-Centered Medical Home.

Under the terms of the agreement, an affiliate of Vista Equity Partners will commence a tender offer for all of the outstanding shares of Greenway’s common stock. Closing of the transaction is conditioned upon, among other things, satisfaction of a minimum tender condition, clearance under the Hart-Scott-Rodino (HSR) Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, and other customary closing conditions. The closing of the transaction is not contingent on financing. In the event that the minimum tender condition is not met, and in certain other circumstances, the parties have agreed to complete the transaction through a one-step merger after receipt of stockholder approval.

CareCloud EHR Raises $20 Million

MIAMI–(BUSINESS WIRE)– CareCloud, the fastest-growing provider of cloud-based practice management, electronic health records (EHR), and medical billing software and services, today announced it has secured $20 million in Series B financing.

The funding round was led by Tenaya Capital and included existing investors Intel Capital and Norwest Venture Partners. This round brings CareCloud’s total funding to $44 million. Stewart Gollmer, Tenaya Capital’s Managing Partner, will join CareCloud’s Board of Directors.

“Most of the U.S. healthcare system is shackled with decades-old technology that will hinder us from improving patient care or delivering on cost containment efforts in a rapidly-changing environment of reform,” said Albert Santalo, CareCloud’s Chairman and CEO. “This investment validates CareCloud’s mission to aim at the heart of the challenge by leveraging the power of the cloud to foster innovation and ultimately replatform the industry.

We are excited to invest in CareCloud and feel that the company represents a powerful combination of industry-leading vision and exemplary execution, driven by a remarkable team.”

Physicians See Better Billing, Technology As Keys To Higher Performance

The May 2013 Practice Profitability Index (PPI), which serves as an annual barometer for the operational wellbeing of U.S. medical groups in the year ahead, surveyed more than 5,000 physicians across the nation and uncovered a downward trend in profitability for the year ahead, which is driving a growing “rip and replace” market for technology. It found that, of the 41% of practices with specific plans aimed at operational improvements in the coming year, the main interventions are: implementing a new EHR (41%), replacing their existing EHR (25%), outsourcing billing/collections (18%) and replacing their practice management system (16%). Furthermore, the majority of physicians (52%) are uncertain if their practice management systems will accommodate regulatory changes in the year ahead. The complete 2013 PPI findings can be accessed at www.poweryourpractice.com/PPI.

Tenaya Capital is a leading venture capital firm with a history of investing in disruptive and category-leading companies including HubSpot, Zuora, RightScale, and Zappos. Intel Capital and Norwest Venture Partners led CareCloud’s $20.1 million Series A funding in September of 2011.
