Protenus Raises $11M From F-Prime Capital, Kaiser Permanente Ventures
BALTIMORE — Healthcare compliance analytics company Protenus today announced an $11M investment to make its comprehensive health data auditing and privacy monitoring platform available to hospitals across North America. Protenus, founded in 2014, helps health systems keep one of their most sacred promises to patients: that sensitive health data remains safe, and is used appropriately.
Currently used by top health systems and academic medical centers across the country, the Protenus platform uses artificial intelligence to analyze every single action inside a medical record system. Hospitals gain full insight into how their health data is used, in order to better protect it.
“Health systems today have big challenges when it comes to protecting patient data,” said Nick Culbertson, Protenus Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer. “We ask our credit card companies to validate every transaction and alert us to anomalous charges. Why shouldn’t we be asking health systems to audit everyone who accesses patient data? Similar principles apply, and the technology is available.”
