Kyruus, a leading healthcare Big Data company, today announced the closing of an $11M Series B financing. The investment was led by Lux Capital, with participation from Fidelity Biosciences as well as existing investors Venrock and Highland Capital Partners. The financing brings the total amount raised by Kyruus to $19.6M since its inception in 2010.
“We are delighted to partner with Lux and Fidelity as we enter the next phase of our company’s growth,” said Graham Gardner, CEO of Kyruus. “Both firms bring important relationships with large numbers of healthcare organizations that today wrestle with how to understand and engage their physician networks. We believe our applications can transform the way these organizations coordinate physician expertise and optimize the delivery of patient care.”
Over the last year, Kyruus has quickly established a customer base of over 20 leading healthcare organizations from across the country, ranging from community hospitals to large multi-facility health systems. The company’s product platform enables organizations to optimize the performance of their physician networks across the areas of network development, referral management, and regulatory compliance. Kyruus will use the new funds to expand its sales and marketing efforts across each of these solution areas.
In conjunction with the financing, Robert Paull, Managing General Partner at Lux Capital, will join the Kyruus Board of Directors. “Large healthcare organizations are by nature extraordinarily complex,” said Paull. “Kyruus solves difficult data problems – providing customers with the clarity to make more informed decisions. Lux is excited to help a remarkable group of entrepreneurs build a defining healthcare information company.”
Kyruus is a leading Big Data company that enables hospitals and health systems to take a data-driven approach to building, operating, and optimizing their physician networks. The first-in-class KyruusOneTM data mining and analytics platform creates a “unified view of the physician” across demographic, clinical, research, financial, and performance-related dimensions. Kyruus’ purpose-built search, analysis, and workflow applications deliver measurable ROI in areas of network development, regulatory compliance, and referral network management by directly engaging physicians to help reduce their administrative overhead, optimize decision-making, and increase the efficiency of their clinical practice and research activities.

In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Bill Schmarzo, CTO for the Big Data Practice at Dell EMC, introduced a methodology for capturing, enriching and sharing data (and analytics) across the organization...

In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...

Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle.

In his session at Big Data Expo, Greg Bruno, Vice President of Engineering and co-founder of StackIQ...
