CHICAGO – June 2, 2016 – First Analysis acted as the exclusive placement agent in a $19.3 million growth capital raise for Apixio Inc. - a leader in cognitive computing applications to uncover and make accessible the knowledge from clinical data for optimal healthcare decision-making. First Analysis provided advisory expertise to Apixio throughout the transaction, including preparation, positioning, investor coordination and contact, due diligence and negotiation.
The equity investment was led by SSM Partners, with participation from First Analysis Venture Capital Funds, Bain Capital Ventures and other existing investors. This capital infusion will enable Apixio to scale its sales and operations, further strengthen its proprietary technology and IP, and accelerate the commercialization of additional service offerings.
“First Analysis was the key reason we were able to successfully conduct this transaction. Their ability to position our business, demonstrate industry expertise, and to leverage strong venture capital relationships helped deliver favorable terms from a value-added partner. We are now in a great place to solidify our market leadership position and take our company to the next level,” said Darren Schulte, MD, CEO of Apixio. “We are very excited to be working together with SSM Partners during the next phase of our growth plan.”

The Company’s computing platform is built upon the insights from analyzing more than six million patient charts.
