TransformativeMed Raises $6 Million in Series A Round of Funding

TransformativeMed, the leader in redefining how clinicians communicate and collaborate using EHR-embedded workflows, today announced that it has closed a $5.8M Series A financing round led by the Alliance of Angels. The funds will be used to accelerate Sales and Marketing efforts with an aggressive nationwide expansion of the CORES Value Suite solution. Today TransformativeMed solutions are used by tens of thousands of clinicians in more than 130 hospitals and health systems to optimize EHR usability, making patient care more productive and enjoyable.

TransformativeMed solutions target the clinical communication and collaboration (CC&C) market. This burgeoning space was narrowly defined by texting and messaging solutions that require interfaces to connect to the EHR. TransformativeMed is dramatically expanding the definition of clinical communication and collaboration with this approach:

  • Out-of-the-box clinician-designed EHR workflows configured by clinical specialty and for complex conditions like diabetes. The workflows surface relevant EHR data as clinicians work, increasing EHR usability and satisfaction by minimizing the frustration of hunting for patient data.

  • Smart messaging and texting solutions powered by machine-learning and integrated directly into the workflows, create a completely turn-key, 100% interface-free clinical communication and collaboration solution.

  • Interface-free, EHR-embedded solutions delivered as a SaaS model to reduce IT burden and ensure rapid, turnkey implementations.

Clinicians relate to the TransformativeMed story. Co-founder Dr. Erik Van Eaton was frustrated by the technical barriers the EHR imposed on delivering efficient patient care. Together he and co-founder David Stone, a technologist, an inventor of Cerner MPages did something about it. They redefined how clinicians use the EHR.

TransformativeMed President and CEO Doug Cusick stated, “TransformativeMed built its business through clinical word-of-mouth. This intimate clinical connection has provided deep insight into what the market needs, the runway to learn how to deliver a truly turnkey solution to IT, and most importantly—market proof that our EHR-optimization approach works.” Cusick added, “We are thrilled with the confidence that our investors have in our solution and team and are prepared to jumpstart TransformativeMed’s growth as we redefine the Clinical Communication and Collaboration market with CORES.”
