Venture Forum winner Sansoro Health lands $5.2 million
Minneapolis-based startup Sansoro Health, which claims its tech makes it easy to exchange data in real-time between digital health applications and electronic health records, has landed $5.2 million in its first round of funding.
Sansoro’s core product, Emissary, leverages APIs for a quick and secure plug-and-play solution enabling innovators to scale quickly and healthcare to inch closer to true interoperability.
Sansoro Health’s integration software Emissary connects applications to EHRs for exchange of health data. The plug-and-play solution leverages web services to provide bi-directional, EHR-agnostic APIs to connect third-party technology products with EMR platforms.
Since its introduction in 2015, Emissary has been implemented by nearly 20 healthcare organizations, enabling the exchange of thousands of API calls per month.
“Innovation in healthcare will drive improved patient outcomes at lower cost, and meaningful change demands modern, secure data exchange,” Sansoro Health CEO Jeremy Edes Pierotti, said in a statement. “True interoperability empowers healthcare organizations to evolve, adapt and innovate to serve patients.”
Sansoro Health won the 10th annual Venture+ Forum startup competition as part of HIMSS16.
Bain Capital Ventures, which has also funded companies such as Apixio, Humedica, MedeAnalytics, MinuteClinic and others, led the funding.
Before the Series A investment, Sansoro Health received $1.2 million in seed funding in 2016, led by San Francisco-based investor Healthy Ventures with additional funds from TreeHouse Health and angel investors.
