healthfinch, a Madison-based healthcare IT startup, has secured $6 million in funding led by Adams Street Partners to continue building and supporting its award-winning Charlie Practice Automation Platform. This funding brings the company’s total raised to over $17MM since it was founded in 2011.
The Charlie Practice Automation Platform, developed by healthfinch, automates routine, repetitive clinical tasks in athenahealth, Epic, and Allscripts EMRs. Its refill management and visit planning applications reduce provider burnout, save time and increase the overall efficiency of health systems. healthfinch plans to use the funds to support the company’s continued growth.
“As healthcare organizations continue to come under pressure to ‘do more with less,’ while at the same time fighting high levels of provider burnout, we have seen the explosion of market awareness and adoption around technology to automate routine, repetitive clinical tasks,” remarks Jonathan Baran, healthfinch’s CEO. “This market readiness for practice automation technology, combined with a sea of change from existing Electronic Medical Record vendors opening up their platforms for innovation, means that we are at the beginning of a technology shift that will drive the healthcare industry forward.”
