Vital raises $5.2 million to streamline emergency room care



ImpactAlpha, April 25 – Patients without immediately life threatening conditions can wait hours to be seen by doctors in U.S. emergency care centers. While that’s not necessarily a sign of poor care, Atlanta-based Vital is nevertheless trying to improve patient ER experiences.

“Hospitals rely on outdated, slow, and inefficient software,” which means doctors and nurses spend a lot of time filling out patient paperwork, Vital founder Aaron Patzer said. The company makes software that uses artificial intelligence and language recognition to triage patient when they arrive.

Vital’s funding round was led by First Round Capital and DFJ, with backing from Bragiel Brothers, Meridian Street Capital, Refactor Capital, and SV Angel and several angel investors. Other companies like Diligent Robotics are using smart tech, like artificial intelligence and robotics, to allow skilled medical professionals to focus on delivering care.
