The company analyses healthcare data to provide actionable insights to healthcare providers, hospitals, insurance companies and other businesses. The US is its biggest market.

The company plans to use this capital to invest in research and development (R&D) and hire as it rapidly scales its customer success, product, and engineering talent. The company currently has 100 vacancies across engineering, product, and business functions.
