Beyond Lucid Technologies Receives Funding From Dalmore Investments Fund led by former UnitedHealth exec has interest in movement of prehospital patient data
WALNUT CREEK, Calif. and MINNEAPOLIS, Nov. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Beyond Lucid Technologies, Inc., the company behind MEDIVIEW™—a mission-critical documentation platform serving the ambulance, fire, and industrial emergency response industries—today announced that it received a six-figure convertible note from Dalmore Investments, LLC, an angel fund based in Minneapolis. The two organizations' founders met in October at the DC to VC competition sponsored by Health 2.0 and Morgenthaler Ventures, where Beyond Lucid Technologies won the Series A venture round.
Dalmore Investments, LLC, is led by Dr. John Blank. A physician and president of the fund, Dr. Blank was most recently Senior Vice President of the Emerging Businesses Group at UnitedHealth Group (UNH). The fund has invested in startups at the synapse of healthcare and IT, leveraging Dr. Blank's extensive experience as a healthcare industry leader, payer, and care provider.
Dr. Blank said, "We know that each year, emergency responders lose roughly $3 billion in unbilled and uncollected revenue because existing methods are ineffective to document care while traveling in a vehicle alongside a sick patient. Generating reliable health records in the EMS context—and unlocking the data they hold—has been a problem in search of a solution for years. We are working with Beyond Lucid Technologies because we think MEDIVIEW™ provides this necessary solution."
Jonathon Feit, Co-Founder & Chief Executive Officer of Beyond Lucid Technologies, said, "We are thrilled to be working with Dalmore Investments, because from the first time we spoke it was clear that they understood our mission to 'connect the dots' between emergency responders and care facilities, especially during times of maximum system stress. The innovations we're bringing to market provide critical on-the-ground awareness for responders during unfortunate incidents like Hurricane Sandy. This infusion will help us grow the team that will transform emergency response."
