by Kay Aloha Villamor in November 17th, 2022

Segmed, a Palo, Alto, CA-based cloud-based real-world imaging platform that accelerates innovation in healthcare by simplifying access to medical data - announced that it closed $5.2 million seed+ funding.

The round was led by Nina Capital, with participation from iGan Partners, M3 Inc, Mighty Capital, Expeditions Fund, and Alchemist Accelerator, bringing the total funds raised to more than $10 million. 

The funding will be used to continue working towards its mission: simplifying access to real-world imaging data. 

The company also announced the launch of Segmed Insight. Segmed Insight was built to get high-quality, real-world medical imaging datasets into the hands of clinicians, researchers, and developers; particularly those seeking to train or validate their AI algorithms.

"The healthcare industry has become increasingly adoptive of artificial intelligence methods, but a roadblock in the development of unbiased, high-performing algorithms has been the timely acquisition of diverse, high-quality data," said Dr. Martin Willemink, CEO and co-founder at Segmed. "With Insight, our customers can massively cut down on data sourcing time, which in turn accelerates research and development in the medical field."

Medical researchers and AI developers using Segmed Insight can conduct a search, view studies and reports matching their search criteria, and construct datasets specific to their parameters.
