This happened last month, but I wanted to make sure we made note of it as part of listing all the Healthcare IT investments that are happening.
Waltham, MA-based health IT company PatientKeeper announced today that it has added $6 million in growth financing, from Flybridge Capital Partners, New Enterprise Associates and Whitney & Company.
PatientKeeper had previously raised a $13 million round in 2009. I find a company like PatientKeeper really interesting since they aren’t an EHR company, but they have a lot of services that many healthcare organizations get from their EHR company. I’ll be interested to see how well they can do with this sort of best of breed approach to healthcare information systems.
On their site they claim to have 40,000 physician users and counting. That’s a lot of physicians using their software. I wonder what their road map is for the future. I’ll have to find them at HIMSS and learn more.
