Healthcare Reimbursement Startup Gentem Raises $3.7 Million in Funding

Gentem, a provider of end-to-end healthcare billing and revenue cycle and reimbursements solutions, raised $3.7 million in funding.

The seed-stage venture fund, Susa Ventures, led the financing round with participation from Village Global, Vulcan Capital, Hustle Fund, 500 Fintech, Social Starts, and Great Oaks VC.

The San Francisco based company Gentem leverages the latest technology in machine learning, automation, fin-tech, and data science to help make healthcare practices run more efficiently.

“The challenges physicians face often get lost in the conversations about the broken healthcare system. There are tremendous administrative complexities and waste in the health system; doctors who run their own practices are not spared from these struggles,” said Fisayo Ositelu, MD, CEO and co-founder of Gentem, in a company press release. “We believe that more doctors will choose to work for physician-owned practices because independent doctors have higher job satisfaction than those working for hospitals and can offer their services at a lower cost for patients.”
