BEIJING, CHINA / ACCESSWIRE / November 25, 2019 / Lead Medical, a medical big data and AI company delivering cardiovascular and gynecology solutions in China to improve medical workflow efficiency and quality of care, announced it has closed Series A funding. "We hope to continue providing data driven solutions to a wider range of front-line healthcare professionals (HCPs) in China. Our goal is to streamline data entry and extraction to allow clean and organized data to be delivered right to the HCPs' fingertips," said Jeffrey Hsu MD, CEO of Lead Medical."
The financing was led by Taya Ventures, a private investment firm headed by Ryan Shen. Mr. Shen, "I believe data in the digital age is extremely valuable when it's properly managed, analyzed and utilized. Lead Medical is a catalyst to bringing dormant data alive. I look forward to the possibility that clean data brings to the healthcare industry in China and abroad." The round also included Hangzhou-based firm Vision Plus VC.
The latest round of funding will allow Lead Medical to deepen existing hospital partnerships, broaden the reach of the flagship Willow Data solution suite, and establish new partnerships with local and international device manufacturers in China. In addition, the company intends to use the capital to support the development of provincial and municipal projects, and further build out its sales and marketing, customer success, and development teams.
Dr. Hsu adds, "Cutting edge big data and AI solutions should be embedded in daily workflow so HCPs can garner the benefits without investing time to learn the technical aspects of the technology. Our solutions have reduced data processing and input time by up to 95% in some of the top Chinese public hospitals. As a result, Chinese HCPs can focus on delivering better care in a high volume, high velocity healthcare system."
