ArcheMedX Growth Trajectory Accelerates, Attracting More Capital and Expanding Leadership Team
$2.5 million equity financing to support product development and scale up marketing for award-winning healthcare digital training and analytics platform
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va., October 26, 2017 (Newswire.com) - ArcheMedX, a healthcare informatics and e-learning technology company, has experienced explosive growth and attracted $2.5 million in equity financing to accelerate the company’s transformation of online health professional education and training.
In the past year, ArcheMedX has doubled their customer base of academic medical centers, pharmaceutical industry leaders, professional societies, and medical education companies that utilize their award-winning digital training platform. The company’s suite of digital learning and analytics products now powers more than 400 interactive and data-driven online training activities, collecting valuable insights from tens of thousands of clinicians, and improving the knowledge and competence of healthcare professionals at more than four times the level of traditional online education.
To support this increasing momentum, ArcheMedX recently closed $2.5 million in equity financing led by prominent early-stage investors Jaffray Woodriff and Greyson Williams. This additional capital will be utilized to meet expanding product demand while positioning the company for long-term growth. Funds will be used to expand engineering to deliver an extended product roadmap and to build a sales and marketing organization that will accelerate progress.
“ArcheMedX is transforming the way healthcare organizations design, deliver, and analyze their online education programs,” says Joel Selzer, co-founder and CEO of ArcheMedX. “With these additional resources, we will expand our impact across the greater healthcare industry, ultimately helping millions of patients receive better care at lower costs.”
