San Francisco-based Wearable Intelligence is just about $500,000 shy of closing a recent equity funding round in support of its mobile computing systems, according to the company’s SEC filing.
Wearable Intelligence has made headlines for its development of a PHILIPA-compliant Google Glass platform for healthcare settings. The product includes context-aware data alerts, procedural checklists, video training and telehealth communication, according to the company’s website.
Boston’s Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center is already running a pilot of Wearable Intelligence’s Google Glass in the hospital’s emergency room, saying that it has "remarkably streamlined clinical workflows that involve information gathering."
The latest funding round, launched earlier this month, aims to raise about $8.4 million total. Wearable Intelligence listed 10 unnamed backers on the round so far.
Previous funders include Google Ventures, Kleiner Perkins Caufield Byers, Andreessen Horowitz and First Round, among others.
