Practicing Physicians Invest in Innovator's Patient Engagement Platform, SNAP Practice
Santa Fe, New Mexico, April 31, 2013–-Patient engagement leader Seamless Medical Systems, today announced it has closed $2 million in early stage funding.
The financing will support Seamless Medical’s growth strategy in three main areas: integration of their patient engagement platform with leading electronic medical records companies, expanding market penetration and accelerating product innovation and future platform updates.
Seamless Medical investor Dr. Hala Toubbeh said, “Seamless is working to improve patient engagement throughout the entire care continuum, from registration to the exam room and then driving communication between patients and practices outside the office. I see no one else as focused on improving the patient experience like Seamless Medical is with SNAP Practice.”
The investors to date have all been individuals, with one third of them being practicing physicians, who best understand the value SNAP brings to improving the patient experience while enhancing practice efficiency.
Seamless Medical’s cloud-based, enterprise platform called SNAP® Practice is a leading technology that replaces the paper forms patients fill out in medical waiting rooms with an iPad. Digital registration is fast and easy with data wirelessly transmitted in real time to the front desk (reducing operations costs and wasteful workflow) and the practice electronic medical record. Patients keep SNAP Practice after registration is complete and are provided customized health and wellness content from the Mayo Clinic to improve health literacy and compliance.
“We will open another round of funding this summer,” said David Perez, founder and CEO, Seamless Medical Systems. “This will help us expand our market reach in North America this year, as well as releasing SNAP® Practice software updates that include integrations with more EHR systems, forms and health content for additional medical specialties and a Spanish language version.”
