VitalMedicals has raised $925,000 in seed funding from professional angel investors and the Stanford-StartX Fund.
The San Francisco-based company will use the fresh funds to grow its technical team and continue building its smart glasses technologies for the hospital “and beyond.” The money will also enable VitalMedicals to expand its pilot programs beyond first two sites, El Camino Hospital and the Palo Alto Veterans Association Hospital.
In the Smart Hospital envisioned by VitalMedicals, clinicians will always have the critical information they need for the task at hand, intelligently delivered to their mobile device or smart glasses. The company’s solutions are connecting clinicians to their data and their teams, to maximize efficiency and drive higher-quality care.
VitalMedicals currently offers three mobile- and smart glasses-enabled products for use in hospitals: VitalVideo which streams live ultrasound, fluoroscopy and endoscopy video to smart glasses and tablets during procedures; VitalCom, that enables clinicians to talk with anyone else in the hospital with just a voice command to their smart glasses or mobile device; and VitalStream, which streams live vital signs and alarms to the anesthesiologist or circulating nurse’s smart glasses or tablet during conscious sedation procedures to improve situational awareness.
