SALT LAKE CITY, May 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- SilverVue®, provider of patient transitional care technologies, announced today an institutional financing round led by Pritzker Group Venture Capital and GE Ventures. Other participants in the round include Epic Ventures.
SilverVue's patient choice platform called SilverSearch is used in hospitals to help patients choose their post-acute care provider based on CMS ratings, zip codes and insurance plans. Patients can now easily select service providers on SilverVue-provided tablets based on the specialized care they need as they leave the hospital, such as long-term acute care, inpatient rehabilitation, skilled nursing or home health services. The platform is simple for both patients and case managers to use, ultimately improving the patient's experience and increasing their engagement when transitioning out of the hospital, even as it reduces costs.
"Empowering patients to make more informed decisions about their medical care is more than our business, it's our passion," said Will West, CEO and founder of SilverVue. "Hundreds of healthcare providers have recognized the need for educating and equipping patients with information about accessible, high quality care – and as a result – hospitals throughout the U.S. are choosing SilverVue. Together with our premier group of healthcare investors, we are committed to improving outcomes for patients."
"SilverVue's proven results in improving the quality of patient care is a great example of the types of transformative companies into which we invest," said Adam Koopersmith, partner, Pritzker Group Venture Capital. "Infusing innovative solutions with technology is our strength and a driving force in our business. We look forward to growing a great business together."
Noah Lewis, Managing Partner at GE Ventures, added, "We're enthusiastic with not only how SilverVue is currently serving hospitals and post-acute providers, but also how they will help patients access other technology services. We are excited to back this team of serial entrepreneurs as they work to continually improve patient engagement and the quality of healthcare."
