Launchpad Digital Health Leads Investment, Joins Board of Directors
SAN FRANCISCO, CA - 2/23/2016 (PRESS RELEASE JET) -- Lab Sensor Solutions (LSStracks.com), a pioneer in sensor networks for the healthcare industry, today announced the initial closing of its latest round of funding. Launchpad Digital Health (launchpdh.com), recently named the #4 digital health investor worldwide by CB Equity, leads the investment, with Launchpad’s CEO, Fred Toney, joining Lab Sensor Solutions' board of directors. Mr. Toney’s extensive background in healthcare and the digital health industry spans two decades, and includes raising over $2 billion in investments and investment banking transactions, as well as public and private company operating experience, including roles of Chairman, CEO and CFO with companies through IPO and M&A transactions.
Lab Sensor Solutions (LSS) will use this current funding to expand sales and support active field trials with major customers. The company’s first product, T-Tracks™, part of the company’s focus on “Sensors as a Service for Healthcare,” is a patent-pending real-time platform solution that monitors perishable materials in transit (like clinical samples, blood products and pharmaceuticals) and alerts customers before items are compromised. The company counts major healthcare networks among its 14 customers and active field trials, and so far touts a 100% conversion rate from trial to paying customer (no trials have ever cancelled). In addition to inside sales, the company has established a distribution partnership with MarketLab, a premier catalog distributor to the healthcare industry, and value added reseller agreements with two major laboratory information system (LIS) providers.
In addition to its recent funding announcement, Lab Sensor Solutions is a competition finalist presenting on stage at Vator Splash Health, a health innovation conference, taking place at Oakland CA’s Kaiser Center Tuesday, February 23rd, 2016. LSS beat out 45 other healthcare companies to be one of six companies invited to present on stage at the event.
