“ClearDATA has achieved considerable revenue and customer growth year-over-year, in parallel with—and influencing—the healthcare industry’s mainstream adoption of the cloud,” said Robert Abbott, Norwest Venture Partners. “As such, the company’s investors are pleased to preemptively add growth capital to accelerate widespread public cloud adoption in the healthcare arena.”
