The company saw demonstrable results in its initial deployments, according to a statement issued by the startup.  The company’s platform “generated more accurate medication data” than data already within electronic health records, and providers were found to save as much as 40 minutes per patient during pre-admission or post-discharge medication reconciliation, the company stated.

“Medication errors are now the leading cause of medical-related injuries, and non-optimized medication therapy costs over $528.4 billion annually,” Desai’s post reads.  “Our north star is to eliminate medication-related errors and optimize medication therapy for millions by building a modern cloud-based medication management system that is patient-centric and provider-focused.”

Desai added that the company is only starting its journey.  The statement notes that the company has doubled its growth in the three prior months.  Desai’s LinkedIn profile notes that the company is hiring, and the statement notes that the firm plans to hire key staff for the startup’s go-to-market plan.

“Our funding is being used to grow our team and expand our platform to better meet the needs of our customers,” Desai’s post reads.  “A special shoutout to our early customers, investors, advisors, friends, family, and everyone who helped make this possible: Thank you!”
