Milwaukee, WI (July 26, 2016) – ConsortiEX, a leader in pharmacy data services, has raised $750,000 in funding from Champaign, Illinois based firm Serra Ventures. Serra’s investment completed the company’s Series A round of financing in July.
To date, ConsortiEX has raised more than $3.4 million in Seed and Series A funding, and has made tremendous progress in recent months. ConsortiEX achieved several significant milestones, including the completion and commercial launch of the company’s Assure-Trak® and Pedigree Management Services. ConsortiEX also secured the largest Assure-Trak® order in company history from New England Life Care. In addition to the NELC account, ConsortiEX completed installations of its Assure-Trak® Pedigree Management Services at Boston Children’s Hospital, Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin, Milford Regional, and the University of Wisconsin. The New England Pharmacy Collaborative began implementation at nine of their member hospitals with anticipated completion by the end of August.
“We were very impressed with CEO Neal Long and the ConsortiEX team from the earliest of interactions,” Serra Ventures Partner Dennis Beard said. “With the company’s demonstrated progress and the enthusiastic acceptance of its products by customers, we are very pleased to add them to the Serra Capital portfolio.”
