Kura MD secured $1.5 million in Series A financing from Moneta Ventures to support the rollout of its advanced telemedicine system. Said system provides individual physicians, physician groups, urgent care providers and workers’ compensation practitioners with an integrated, web-based telehealth solution, which can be quickly and economically implemented in any professional practice setting.
Kura’s platform enables secure, HIPAA-compliant telehealth appointments between physicians and patients through a computer, smartphone or tablet. It incorporates electronic medical records (EMR), an interface hub, registration system, verification, billing, claims, video conferencing, and integration of peripheral equipment, practice management and an optional best-in-class health station. In addition, Kura MD enables the doctor to bring in a specialist to consult during a telemedicine visit to provide real-time consultation.
“Incorporating the Kura MD platform into their practice, doctors will be able to offer a new level of timely, convenient care for their patients while providing the latest connected healthcare technology, insuring privacy and reducing administrative tasks for both the doctor and the patient,” said Kevin Hamm, Kura MD Founder and CEO.
Both Kura MD and Moneta Ventures are Sacramento-area based entities.
