Health Catalyst Raises $41 Million to Enable $50 Million Product Development Investment, Capping Year of Wins Including New Clients Kaiser Permanente and Partners HealthCare

Salt Lake City – January 28, 2014 Health Catalyst, the leader in healthcare data warehousing and analytics, announced today that it closed $41 million in funding from existing investors Sequoia Capital, Norwest Venture Partners,  Kaiser Permanente Ventures, Sorenson Capital, and Partners HealthCare.

The investment enables Health Catalyst to further build out its healthcare analytics platform and assist its clients in systematically and permanently improving efficiency and effectiveness in care delivery.  The company plans to invest $50 million in product development over the next 24 months, including production of the next 200 advanced content-driven clinical applications on its roadmap.

“We are thrilled that our existing investors chose to continue their strategic relationships with us, leading the way to major innovations for US healthcare,” said Health Catalyst CEO Dan Burton. “As more healthcare organizations are coming to understand, data warehousing and analytics are foundational to their success under new payment and risk models. In 2013 we increased the number of completed platform and application products to 100, as well as increasing our bookings by a factor of five, year over year. We have also been pleased that our operations have scaled to be on track to produce positive cash flows in 2014, outside of our significant product development investments.  This additional capital will enable Health Catalyst to develop the applications necessary to offer every health system in the US a roadmap to systematically reduce waste and improve care delivery, across every major clinical and workflow area.”
