Predilytics

by Robert F. Higgins and Annelena Lobb

Abstract

The management team at Predilytics, a healthcare analytics firm, must decide whether to accept a Series A venture capital financing deal. The company provided analytic services to healthcare plans, typically Medicare Advantage plans, in efforts to draw conclusions from massive amounts of patient data. The company still had enough funding from a seed round to operate on a low-key basis for a few more months, but the team hoped to move forward aggressively and scale its business. They also needed to make business choices about next steps.

Keywords: analytics; healthcare; Medicare; Health Care and Treatment; Mathematical Methods; Health Industry; New England; United States;
