Murj raises financing for cardiac device management platform

MDBR Staff Writer Published 10 May 2018

Digital healthcare firm Murj has raised $8.5m financing to advance the commercialization of its cloud-based cardiac device management platform.

The Series B financing was led by Longitude Capital, while participants included True Ventures and other existing investors.

Murj is planning to use the funding to continue commercial expansion of its cloud-based cardiac device management platform, which was developed to replace inefficient workflow processes and outdated device management systems.

Longitude Capital managing director Marc Galletti will join as board of director in Murj.

Murj founder and CEO Todd Butka said: “Cardiac clinics are seeking solutions that improve workflow productivity and deliver greater clinical insight, and the customer success of the past year is evidence that our platform delivers the solutions clinicians need.

“We look forward to working with Longitude Capital as we introduce Murj to a growing customer base.”

Murj cloud-based solution can be activated within 24 hours, and needs no software to install or maintain.

The cloud-based solution provides support for implantable cardiac devices of major device manufacturers in all care modalities, including in-office interrogations and remote transmissions.

Murj aggregates a patent-pending user interface, intelligent care workflow and actionable insight to enhance productivity and clinical insight.

Murj said it offers an effective path for clinics to monitor, process and care for their device patients.

Galletti further added: “Murj is delivering much-needed innovation in the cardiac clinic to improve patient care and clinic workflows, and we look forward to helping them expand their leadership position.”

The company is exhibiting its cloud-based cardiac device management platform at this year’s Heart Rhythm Society Scientific Sessions in Boston, Massachusetts, which is being held from 9 to 12 May.

Murj provides implantable cardiac devices to clinicians, which will help streamline and improve care for patients.
