Bridge Connector, a healthcare data integration platform as a service (iPaaS) that delivers streamlined integration solutions for healthcare organizations, today announced it has raised $4.5 million in seed funding led by Axioma Ventures LLC. The seed round also includes participation from Alex Jenkins, co-founding partner of Axioma Ventures; Hannibal Baldwin, Chief Financial Officer of Baldwin Beach Capital and Co-CEO of SiteZeus; and Jeffrey S. Wenger, M.D., a board-certified gastroenterologist. The health tech startup plans to use the funding to expand its support, sales, and management teams.
Integration for healthcare organizations has been a huge pain point until now because any previous integration solution was expensive, slow to deploy, and difficult to maintain. Founded in 2017 and headquartered in Palm Beach Gardens, FL (also with offices in Knoxville and Nashville), Bridge Connector is an integration platform as a Service (iPaaS) that offers a seamless, full- service integration solution regardless of the platform being used, freeing up internal IT resources. It acts as a secure pipeline between end-points, moving medical data between systems directly, without needing to store sensitive electronic healthcare information in another database. Data is transferred through a local session using AES 256-bit encryption, and all data is cleared once the transfer is complete.
“Despite the global market for healthcare information technology being expected to reach $297 billion by 2022, there previously was no way for healthcare organizations to automatically transfer data between disparate systems, without an IT team,” said David Wenger, CEO and founder of Bridge Connector. “Bridge Connector offers an inexpensive solution to an expensive problem, enabling healthcare organizations to streamline their data flows so they can focus on the treatment of their patients, rather than their data management.”
