Hospitals Improve Health Care
by Nicholas Sakelaris • Mar 18, 2016
The analytics of health care has become a multimillion-dollar business for Pieces Technologies.
The startup just secured $21.6 million in Series A funding and launched its software in Children’s Health System of Texas.
Pieces Technologies is using software to help hospital systems run efficiently and provide better outcomes to patients.
It got its start at the Parkland Center for Clinical Innovation in Dallas, a research nonprofit. The goal is to use analytics to do predictive and surveillance data for patients.
It’s already in use at several hospitals, including Parkland Health & Hospital System, Texas Health Resources and, now, Children’s Health.
“You can take a number of sites, and using their analytics measure the interventions and reduce the read or risk of infection,” Pete Perialas, chief strategy officer and senior vice president of Children’s Health.
The $1 million a year company received Series A funding from PAC Partners and Jump Capital. The company has 35 employees now but plans to grow to 50 by the end of 2016.
