The health IT startup plans to use the funding to expand its existing clinical partnerships, invest heavily in its research and development efforts around quality analytics, as well as establish new relationships with various clinical and data partners.

“An accurate diagnosis is fundamentally important for formulating the right treatment plan. That is why we started in radiology. All too often, patients are misdiagnosed at this pivotal juncture in their care, hindering their ability to get better,” said Ron Vianu. “Our approach to improving outcomes is premised upon partnering with providers to better understand how to measure and deliver quality care, ensuring each and every patient has the best opportunity for recovery,” added Vianu.
