NASHVILLE – UptimeHealth, a health technology company that simplifies medical device service through automation and predictive analytics, announced a Series A capital raise of $4.5 million. The raise was co-led by Caduceus Capital Partners and Wavemaker Three-Sixty Health (Wavemaker 360) and will support plans to accelerate growth and expansion in the healthcare services market.
Healthcare is rapidly moving away from hospitals closer to people’s homes, a shift that is spurred by advances in technology, new regulations, value-based payment models and consumer demand.
