Integral, a new health tech company, today launched the first end-to-end collaborative software suite to automate healthcare data compliance – improving the ability to quickly evaluate sensitive healthcare data and drive patient-centric analysis.
Emerging from stealth, the company announced a pre-seed funding round and launched the Integral Platform – a suite of automation and collaborative tools that enables healthcare data compliance in hours to days, rather than months, and enables businesses to make quick, informed decisions to improve everyday people’s health.
Until now, there was no way to automate the privacy certification of healthcare datasets to comply with regulations like HIPAA. Today it is a slow, cumbersome, manual, and expensive process typically performed as a consulting service. Integral directly integrates with data storage systems such as AWS (Amazon Web Services) or GCP (Google Cloud Platform), continuously runs a set of privacy assessments, and enables users to resolve privacy violations through an easy-to-use interface. Integral powers real-time compliance so companies can work with data safely and more quickly than they ever have before.
“Today, healthcare data compliance is done on an episodic, ad-hoc basis rather than a continuous process,” said Shubh Sinha, co-founder, and CEO, of Integral. “I believe there needs to be a continuous solution to solve this continuous problem. By speeding up the compliance process for healthcare data, Integral makes it possible to create bespoke patient experiences, streamline drug development research, and more while ensuring patient privacy. This is critical to creating a better healthcare system.”
Integral is backed by experts in healthcare and tech. The pre-seed round funding was led by Virtue Ventures and joined by Caffeinated Capital, GreatPoint Ventures, Array Ventures, LiveRamp Ventures, as well as angel investors Joel Jewitt, co-founder and vice president at LiveRamp, Michel Tricot co-founder and CEO at Airbyte, Sam Whitaker, founder and CEO at Mural Health, Abhishek Chandra, co-founder and CEO at Record Health, Andrew Arruda, co-founder and CEO at Flexpa, and others. Advisors to the company are Jason Brenner, regional vice president for healthcare and life sciences at LiveRamp, and Bradley Malin, vice chair for research and professor of biomedical informatics at Vanderbilt University.
The Integral Platform consists of collaboration tools so companies can efficiently manage their data partners, automated documentation generation for easy history tracking, and a robust privacy engine to customize and remediate data.
On Wednesday, March 1, the company co-founder and CEO, Shubh Sinha, is speaking at LiveRamp’s conference, RampUp, in San Francisco, Breakthrough and Accelerate with New Ways to Connect Data.
