Elation Health raised $15 million in new financing to take another crack at electronic health records.
Keeping paper records is slow, hard to transfer and share a lot of information that can be lost along the way. Even though this is a common issue with many medical practices, there hasn’t been any breakout electronic health records companies. That’s what Elation Health is trying to change; they raised $15 million to try and win over doctors and physicians. The company arrived at a decision on an online-based electronic health records system that will remove forms and faxes by being able to share all this data online between patients and physicians – in a private way. Taking on large companies has been challenging, but by focusing on individual practices and physicians’ relationships, Elation Health will likely succeed.
