- MedScout, a revenue acceleration platform dedicated to revolutionizing commercial operations for medtech and life sciences companies, has successfully completed a $5 million seed investment round. The round was led by Stage 2 Capital, with participation from LiveOak Venture Partners, Alumni Ventures, and a16z’s Scout Fund. This funding will enable MedScout to provide advanced sales intelligence tools purpose-built for selling into the healthcare sector.
- The traditional sales processes of medtech and life sciences sectors heavily rely on in-person interactions and personal relationships, resulting in higher sales, general, and administrative (SG&A) expenses compared to other technology companies. MedScout aims to address this by offering a comprehensive revenue acceleration platform that combines the latest medical claims intelligence with a user-friendly interface designed specifically for sales professionals and leaders.
Transforming Sales in the Healthcare Sector
MedScout stands out as a game-changer in the industry. Unlike legacy players, MedScout provides a comprehensive revenue acceleration platform that integrates the latest medical claims intelligence from public and private payors. The platform offers an intuitive user experience, empowering sales professionals and leaders with actionable insights. Customers have praised MedScout for its ease of use and powerful integration with customer relationship management (CRM) systems. Sales representatives can efficiently prioritize opportunities, manage their schedules, and access valuable referral data to build stronger relationships with physicians and practices. Additionally, MedScout provides commercial leadership with better insights into unique market opportunities, enabling them to align sales and marketing efforts for increased effectiveness.
“We believe that medtech sales is undergoing a similar evolution to what we’ve witnessed in technology sales, where data and technology drive efficient results,” stated Stage 2 Capital. “MedScout’s revenue acceleration platform perfectly addresses the needs of the industry, empowering sales professionals and leaders with actionable insights and a user-friendly interface. We were impressed with the thoughtfulness of co-founders Skylar Talley and Casey Shattuck during their participation in our Catalyst Program, and we are thrilled to support their vision.”
Partnerships and Growth Plans
MedScout collaborates with the IRS through their Certified Acceptance Program to obtain Individual Taxpayer Identification Numbers (ITINs) for its members, enabling them to establish a tax presence, file taxes, build credit, obtain driver’s licenses, and purchase homes.
With the substantial seed funding, MedScout is well-positioned to accelerate its growth and establish itself as the go-to revenue acceleration platform for medtech and life sciences companies. The company remains committed to innovation and a customer-first mindset. They have expanded their Engineering and Customer Success teams to support the growth experienced this year and plan to hire personnel in Sales, Marketing, Engineering, and Product in the coming months.
