Healthcare data analytics startup PurpleLab raised $40 million in a Series B funding round led by Primus Capital, with participation from Edison Partners.
The company offers a platform that helps healthcare organizations analyze real-world data to determine how well interventions are working on a population level. It will use the funding to invest in new data assets, product development and new hires.
“We’re laser focused on creating infrastructure and tools to assist our clients in converting real-world data into real-world evidence, and this investment will accelerate the rate of adoption, conversion and ultimate return on their investment,” Mark Brosso, CEO and founder of PurpleLab, said in a statement.
“Understanding comparative performance of various treatments for every condition is becoming easier through technologies such as de-identification via tokenization and is being further driven by legislative mandates such as the 21st Century Cures Act. In a world with increased access to RWD, the biggest challenge lies in the ability to readily interpret the data.”
