Sansoro Health, an EMR integration company has raised $1.2M in seed funding led by San Francisco-based investor Healthy Ventures, with additional funds coming from TreeHouse Health and angel investors. The company will use the investment to enhance its open API software, expand its team, and further develop its marketing and sales capabilities.
Among U.S. hospital system chief information officers, 62% identify interoperability as their most important priority. Founded in 2014, Sansoro’s Emissary application provides EMR interoperability through universal application programming interfaces (APIs) and a unified data model.
Once installed, this middleware can be used to connect to a wide array of third party software and hardware and will support a “build once, roll many” approach. Emissary can be implemented in a matter of hours by seamlessly integrating with a provider’s existing EMR platform; saving healthcare systems thousands of dollars and headaches in the process.
“The seamless clinical data exchange between EMR platforms and digital health vendors is critically important to achieving better health outcomes,” said Anya Schiess, general partner, Healthy Ventures. “Sansoro Health’s real-time integration software bridges the gap to improve patient care.”
The investment capitalizes on the company’s momentum in 2016. Sansoro Health won the 10th annual Venture+ Forum competition for startup companies as part of the 2016 Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) Annual Conference. The company was also selected by Healthcare Informatics as one of only six national “Up and Comers 2016.”
