IRVINE, Calif., April 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Lifespeed, developer of a cutting edge mobile health management app for patients and health care providers, has announced the launch of their $15,000,000 Series A round of financing. Lifespeed intends to use this financing in order to bring their product to a broader audience and facilitate the market shift towards an empowered consumer health care experience for patients.
"The reason why we created Lifespeed is that we really want to democratize peoples' health care experience. We want to make it easy for patients to take control of their data, communicate with doctors on their terms, and integrate their wearables and apps all in one place. On top of that, doctors and hospitals will be able to engage their patients better than ever." Stated Lifespeed's CEO, Nolan Murtha.
Through an initial friends and family round, the company has already produced a comprehensive product. Lifespeed's massively scalable infrastructure, visual database and an enormous healthcare marketplace ensure its ability to stand out in the rapidly growing multi-billion dollar mobile health industry. Additionally, Lifespeed has several patented technologies that present exciting licensing opportunities within the mobile health sector and across many other industries.
"After working in the industry for over a decade you become familiar with countless inefficiencies plaguing the health care system," commented Matt Good, President of Lifespeed. "These inefficiencies coupled with countless personal testimonies about frustrations with the lack of data access and transparency, led us to found Lifespeed. Our goal is to provide consumers with free access to their health data and allow for one seamless user experience regardless of what doctor, hospital, application or service patients choose to engage. Health care is the last major industry to go online, and one of the only ones where consumers have limited buying power. Consumers are going to have new options in the future, and owning that data is the first step toward that empowerment."
