CalmWave, a Seattle, WA-based company that leverages artificial intelligence (AI) to bring operational health to hospitals to improve nurse retention and patient outcomes, announced that it closed oversubscribed $4 million in seed funding.

The round was led by Bonfire Ventures, with participation from Tau Ventures, AI2 Incubator, Seachange Ventures, Hike Ventures, and the co-founders of PagerDuty.

CalmWave will use the funds to hire top talent, launch new marketing initiatives, and continue to develop and launch innovative products to bring operational health to health care.

“As the largest segment of the healthcare workforce, nurses are dramatically affected by false alarms and ICU noise. Nearly 50% of nurses report suffering from burnout,” said, CalmWave CEO and Founder, Ophir Ronen. “We envision a day where Operations Health is the definitive measure of performance for healthcare providers. We aim to provide an objective, repeatable, and comprehensive AI-powered analytical scoring system to improve hospital operations – starting with alarms – and improve the lives of patients, their caregivers, and providers.”

CalmWave’s platform uses AI and expert services to help healthcare organizations optimize operations and make data-informed decisions.
