“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.”
Investors see this as an extraordinary opportunity as well. Tom Bremner, a partner with Adams Street, states, “Helping healthcare organizations drive operational efficiency by automating and standardizing manual workflows is critically important. Every health system wants and needs to reduce provider burnout, drive cost savings, and free up clinicians to spend more time with their patients.”
healthfinch plans to use the funds to support the company’s continued growth. Baran adds, “We’re excited about the future and opportunities that this funding will provide. It will enable us to take a great product even further, in terms of both development and reach.”
