e-Kare, Inc., a Fairfax, VA-based digital health company that speeds the assessment and monitoring of chronic wounds, raised a funding of undisclosed amount.
The company intends to use the funds to enhance its technologies and team.
Founded in 2013 by Patrick Cheng as a spin-off enterprise from the Children’s National Medical Center (CNMC), e-Kare has developed a proprietary point-of-care subscription service that enables comprehensive 3-dimensional wound assessment on a mobile device. It also provides a HIPAA-compliant cloud management platform to support the front-end device, allowing clinicians to archive, access and analyze the clinical images and informatics generated from the e-Kare sensor.
The management platform can also interface with the clinicians’ existing electronic health record to further streamline care delivery.
