CHICAGO – June 2, 2016 – First Analysis, a leading venture capital investor, has made a new investment in Apixio. Headquartered in San Mateo, Calif., Apixio brings advanced data to healthcare by extracting and analyzing previously trapped unstructured medical record data, giving healthcare payers and providers unprecedented access to groundbreaking insights. The $19.3 million Series D round, which was led by SSM Partners, will enable Apixio to advance and scale products powered by its cognitive computing platform, further enabling insights for optimal patient care.
The Series D funding comes as Apixio experiences strong momentum and increasing demand for its HCC Profiler solution, which mines unstructured medical records, for an accurate view of a patient’s chronic conditions so payers and providers can deliver better care. Apixio’s cognitive computing platform has analyzed data from more than six million patients, achieving 210 percent year-over-year growth in patients analyzed.

“We invested in Apixio because we’ve seen how its cognitive computing platform unlocks unstructured healthcare data to improve care. Apixio has proven the value of its technology with its HCC Profiler solution, and with this round of funding the company can continue to build on its work and expand its solutions to different healthcare delivery environments,” said Frank Sparacino, senior vice president at First Analysis.
“We’re eager to meet the healthcare market's increasing appetite for applied data science and are confident our cognitive computing platform will play a leadership role in the transformation of how healthcare is consumed and delivered,” said Darren Schulte, MD, CEO at Apixio. “We are very excited to partner with First Analysis who will bring invaluable industry expertise and market awareness.”
Powered by its cognitive computing platform, Apixio brings advanced data to healthcare by extracting and analyzing previously trapped unstructured medical record data, giving healthcare payers and providers valuable insights.
Apixio’s computing platform is built upon the insights from analyzing more than 6 million patient charts. Its HCC Profiler Solution mines medical charts and Medicare-reported chronic condition data to more efficiently and accurately compute patient risk scores than traditional chart review methods. HCC Profiler enables more targeted care delivery and helps Medicare set payer and provider payment for patients enrolled in Medicare Advantage (MA), powering more cost-effective, high-quality care.
