Spokane-based startup Medcurity has raised additional funds to hire more people, strengthen its presence in digital marketing, and expand HIPAA security and privacy training.
Medcurity recently received $ 200,000 in a seed funding round from the Washington Research Foundation Capital, bringing the total amount to $ 737,500.
The company plans to hire a chief information security officer and for positions in sales and web development, said Amanda Hepper, co-founder of Medcurity.
Medcurity was founded in 2018 by Hepper and Joe Gellatly and offers a product that enables health care organizations to comply with security laws and HIPAA, the federal law restricting the sharing of medical information.
The product asks users questions to assess administrative, technical, and physical risks within an organization. An audit-ready report is then created and detailed action elements are generated.
