[Updated, 1:40pm. See below] One of Boston’s most intriguing health IT startups just got a little richer. Kyruus, which makes analytics software for hospitals and health systems, has raised $25 million in new funding.

By our count, that’s $56 million in total funding for Kyruus, which has 110 employees. [Updated figures from company representative—Eds.] The new money comes from New Leaf Venture Partners, along with Providence Health & Services, Leerink Capital Partners, McKesson Ventures, and previous investors Venrock, Highland Capital Partners, Lux Capital, and Fidelity Biosciences (quite a list).

Kyruus says its software is being used to manage physician scheduling and referrals by some 20,000 healthcare providers. Some recent customers include Keck Medicine of the University of Southern California, Community Health Network in Indiana, Mercy Health in Ohio, and Swedish Medical Center in Seattle.

Kyruus got started in 2010, led by co-founders Graham Gardner and Julie Yoo. The startup is known for its “Moneyball for doctors” approach to using big data to match physicians’ expertise to patient needs.
