Kyruus Lands $5.5M from Highland, Venrock, Others
Boston-based Kyruus, a health-IT startup whose name I cannot spell, said today it has raised a $5.5 million Series A round led by Highland Capital Partners, Venrock, and Gerson Lehrman Group. Angel investors Jonathan Bush, Ed Park, John Goldsmith, and James Golden also participated in the financing. Kyruus has developed a software platform that includes professional profiles of doctors and “big data” analytics. The software provides what Kyruus calls “a unified view of the physician” that can be searched and analyzed by healthcare deliverers, government workers, and payers. The company started in 2010 and is led by co-founders Graham Gardner and Julie Yoo (both from Generation Health). Gardner told Forbes that the goal is to become “the Bloomberg or ITA Software of physician information.” Xconomy first wrote about Kyruus back in January.
