Founded by former Epic engineers, Redox, a health IT startup helping developers integrate with EHRs and health systems manage their connections to the cloud, today announced it has raised $3.5M in Series A funding led by .406 Ventures with participation by Flybridge Capital Partners and HealthX Ventures. The company hopes to solve the EHR interoperability problem with their RESTful API designed to help apps share data with almost any EHR vendor at any health system.
Redox’s integration platform approach represents a simplifying shift from costly point-to-point integration solutions. For health systems, the Redox platform acts as a single access point for all cloud-based applications, providing access controls and monitoring while eliminating point-to-point integrations.
For cloud-based vendors, Redox’s EHR integration APIs and implementation services allow them to effectively sell to health systems and focus on developing their applications. As a result, implementations are accelerated from months to hours and up-front costs are significantly reduced, de-risking integration projects and enabling health systems to more easily adopt cutting edge innovations.
“Redox believes that one of the biggest issues holding back innovation in the health-tech space is how to access all of the incredibly valuable data that resides in different EHR systems across the health care landscape,” said Luke Bonney, co-founder of Redox in an official statement. “There are endless opportunities to use data from electronic health records to improve patient care and provide efficiency to healthcare providers. It’s our mission at Redox to accelerate the adoption of great technology in healthcare, to get it into the hands of physicians and patients, by removing EHR integration as a key barrier.”
To date, more than 120 apps currently use Redox’s integration platform. The company recently opened a “Gallery” that showcases many of its partners, companies that are focusing on some of healthcare’s biggest challenges including care coordination, telehealth, medication adherence, patient engagement, chronic care, and disease management solutions.
