156: How Elation Health Put’s The Heart Back Into Health Care Tech
Elation Health has developed a cloud-based care platform built for physicians so they can focus on their patients and deliver high quality care.
Earlier this year, Elation Health, formerly known as ElationEMR, announced a $15MM funding round to solve one of healthcare’s biggest challenges — the ability for patients to experience continuous, coordinated care in today’s fragmented healthcare system. The cloud-based platform, beloved by thousands of physicians, connects more than two million patients to their providers in a dynamic health information network that enables providers in different organizations to share information and collaborate on mutual patients at the point of care.
Elation Health was founded by two siblings that built a business in their father’s primary care practice. It is now being used to serve more than 5,000,000 patients by 6,000 providers and is backed by some of the biggest names in tech.
“I helped found Elation because I felt compelled. I see an immense threat to patient care brought on by inadequate IT systems and a vast disconnect between policy-makers and front-line clinicians. Technology has offered dramatic improvements in so many other aspects of life. Why not this critically important one? That’s where Elation fits in, and that’s why I’m here” CEO & Co Founder Kyna Fong
