Clearly they are well positioned to be the dominant player in the healthcare analytics space.”
Simon Meier, investment director for the Roche Venture Fund, will take a seat on Viewics’ board of directors.
Viewics will use this financing to scale its business and continue to innovate in healthcare management solutions by driving data intelligence and collaboration across healthcare organizations.
