Acupera secures $4 million for its population health platform


Provider of population health and workflow technology for health systems Acupera secured $4 million in financing from Lightspeed Venture Partners joined by The Whittemore Collection, which supported the Series A funding. The company will use this latest funding round to scale its product development team and add to its customer implementation group.

“For our first institutional round of funding, we selected Lightspeed Venture Partners as they understand the pressure our customers are under and the unique solution Acupera offers,” said Dr. Ronald Razmi, CEO of Acupera. “They provide expertise that can help Acupera scale up successfully in the dynamic healthcare IT landscape.”

With an integrated clinical analytics and workflow engine, Acupera enables health systems to evaluate their patient population and develop appropriate population and patient-level strategies for managing care. The platform mines data from various sources such as Electronic Health Records (EHRs), medical claims, lab results and devices to create care plans based on clinical and behavioral gaps in care. Through Acupera’s technology, both historical and new data can be leveraged to improve care for entire patient populations.

Acupera’s system is successfully deployed at St. Vincent Medical Center, a 22-hospital system in Indianapolis, Indiana.
