MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/10/14 -- drchrono Inc., the creator of a free Electronic Health Record (EHR) platform on the iPad, iPhone and cloud, today announced the company has raised an additional $2.69M in convertible debt funding. Some of the investors include Runa Capital, Maxfield Capital, FundersClub, Bruno Bowden, Silicon Valley Bank and Box, Inc among others. In addition to the $4.13M the company has previously raised, this brings the company's total funding to $6.77M.
drchrono's goal is to allow doctors and patients to easily connect with one another, share critical data, and push the limits of the medical industry. With drchrono's web apps, iOS and Android apps, and now its underlying API, doctors are able to leverage its EHR platform to move healthcare data between the platform and other important sources like medical devices and hospitals.
The company put up an AngelList profile to keep in touch with existing investors, with the company inviting these investors to AngelList. Daniel Kivatinos, cofounder and COO mentioned, "It's a great way to keep our existing investors in the loop with press and traction, showing updates about what is happening within the company. We use it as an information distribution tool. In doing that, something interesting happened, additional investors from around the world started to contact us. We didn't expect AngelList to be such a powerful place to find investors. The investors come to you."
The unique way that the money was raised validates what AngelList is doing, letting investors from every corner of the world see what is happening, picking winning companies without having to move to Silicon Valley or other world startup hubs. Investors can pick an investment and do research right from AngelList.
Naval Ravikant, CEO at AngelList, mentions, "One of the advantages of putting your company online is that investors with relevant domain expertise from all over the world can reach you. In this case, a European firm can find and lead an investment in a U.S. company."
"drchrono is a very exciting company to watch in the mobile healthcare space," said Andre Bliznyuk at Runa Capital. "The company's passion toward fixing healthcare and improving the doctor-patient experience, and its use of innovative technology has made us a firm supporter in the company. We are excited to watch drchrono evolve and build an important infrastructure for doctors that will help improve efficiencies in their office and ultimately improve patient care."
Dr. James Rieger, an active physician on the drchrono platform, is also an investor in this recent round. He mentions, "I use drchrono, and it is simply amazing. I wanted to jump into this investment round since I use the medical platform day to day in my practice."
The funding will be used to invest in the healthcare API so drchrono partners can leverage the powerful medical records, practice management and the medical billing platform. The company has 2.6+ million patients and 60,000+ physicians that developers can leverage. More than 480 million dollars per year in medical billing is being processed through the healthcare platform, and drchrono founders say the platform is at critical mass and accelerating.
"After five years it's time to bring drchrono into the infrastructure space, good medical infrastructure is lacking. We are now laying foundation to build out a new healthcare infrastructure," Daniel Kivatinos, COO mentions. "We are creating a new experience for doctors and for patients that just doesn't exist today with a market place for other applications."
"Our goal has always been to fix the existing healthcare system," said Michael Nusimow, cofounder and CEO. "With 2.6 million patients and over 60,000 physicians signed up on the drchrono platform, we have realized that drchrono is more than just 'an app,' and we are committed to ensuring that doctors have an all-inclusive platform to start a practice on, from using point of care tools with patients to processing medical claims."
drchrono focuses on Apple's iPad, iPhone and cloud computing to build a better healthcare experience. They offer a free EHR platform built on the iPad that is Meaningful Use certified. drchrono is also the first iPad EHR to implement real time clinical speech-to-text, patient eligibility checks and iPad based medical billing. drchrono handles everything a doctor needs to run their practice, including medical records, electronic prescribing, medical billing, and patient management.

This certification does not represent an endorsement by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services or guarantee the receipt of incentive payments. drchrono version 9.0 was Stage 1 certified on June 3, 2011. The ONC certification ID number is IG-2492-11-0083
Culture is the most important ingredient of DevOps. The challenge for most organizations is defining and communicating a vision of beneficial DevOps culture for their organizations, and then facilitating the changes needed to achieve that. Often this comes down to an ability to provide true leadership. As a CIO, are your direct reports IT managers or are they IT leaders? The hard truth is that many IT managers have risen through the ranks based on their technical skills, not their leadership abi...

Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning. Boundary (now part of BMC) launched a new public-facing multi-tenant high resolution monitoring service on Amazon AWS two years ago, facing challenges and learning best practices in the early days of the new service.

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...

My team embarked on building a data lake for our sales and marketing data to better understand customer journeys. This required building a hybrid data pipeline to connect our cloud CRM with the new Hadoop Data Lake. One challenge is that IT was not in a position to provide support until we proved value and marketing did not have the experience, so we embarked on the journey ourselves within the product marketing team for our line of business within Progress.

Virtualization over the past years has become a key strategy for IT to acquire multi-tenancy, increase utilization, develop elasticity and improve security. And virtual machines (VMs) are quickly becoming a main vehicle for developing and deploying applications. The introduction of containers seems to be bringing another and perhaps overlapped solution for achieving the same above-mentioned benefits. Are a container and a virtual machine fundamentally the same or different? And how? Is one techn...

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and micro services. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your contain...
