SoCal headquartered Venture Capital fund, CerraCap Ventures, has announced a strategic investment in Predicta Med, one of the world’s leading early startups helping medical clinics and institutions identify and work-up immune-related diseases earlier.
Their PredictAI™ platform aggregates, analyses, and enriches data-driven decision-making that helps healthcare providers drastically reduce immune-related disease diagnosis from years and months to weeks. Predicta Med has established vital partnerships with prestigious healthcare providers like Hea3rt (Stanford Medicine’s Healthcare AI Applied Research Team), Hoag Memorial Hospital, Presbyterian and KSM (Kahn-Sagol-Maccabi) Research and Innovation. In addition, Predicta Med has completed Mayo Clinic Platform Accelerate, a 20-week program focused on model validation and clinical readiness designed to help early-stage health tech AI startups become market-ready. These collaborations have enriched Predicta Med’s data analytics platform with more than 8.5 million EMR and claims records.
Commenting on the investment, Abhi Mukherjee, Operating Partner, CerraCap Ventures, said, “Predicta Med has a clearly defined mission to improve the health of millions and has built a commendable early-mover advantage in creating a decision support platform to help early detection and intervention of chronic diseases that afflict more than 50 million Americans annually. Shlomit and Benny, Predicta Med’s Co-Founders, are very passionate about their mission and have brought together an elite team of subject matter experts, advisors, and investors. We are confident that together, we will make a positive impact to millions of lives globally.”
