Murj, an Implantable cardiac device data collector
The company plans to use this funding for commercialisation of its cloud-based platform for management of cardiac devices.
As more and more people use implantable cardiac devices that track user data and pass on to the care providers, it becomes challenging for the doctors to manage this high volume of data. This called for the need of a platform that helps the clinicians to improve workflow and help in better management of cardiac devices.
Murj, a startup based in Santa Cruz, California, provides a software solution to manage implantable cardiac devices. It has raised a Series B funding of $8.5 Million in a round led by Longitude Partners with participation from previous investor True Ventures. The company raised $4.5 Million in Series A funding in April last year.
Todd Butka, Murj’s founder and CEO said, “We are thrilled to have the support of Longitude Capital and our existing investors. Cardiac clinics are seeking solutions that improve workflow productivity and deliver greater clinical insight, and the customer success of the past year is evidence that our platform delivers the solutions clinicians need. We look forward to working with Longitude Capital as we introduce Murj to a growing customer base.”
The cloud-based software is supported to work with all the major implantable cardiac device manufacturers. Its patent-pending user interface can be activated in less than 24 hours and helps to dramatically improve clinical insight and productivity.
Managing director of Longitude Capital, Marc Galleti, will join Murj on the board of directors.
“We are impressed with the Murj team’s dedication to their mission and believe the company’s technology is an unmatched, best-in-class solution,” Galletti said in a statement.
“Murj is delivering much-needed innovation in the cardiac clinic to improve patient care and clinic workflows, and we look forward to helping them expand their leadership position.”
