With this new funding, we’ll be better positioned to seize new opportunities through our range of solutions and address a host of critical industry needs."

Andrew Adams, managing partner and co-founder at Oak HC/FT, said, "Veda's technology will fundamentally change how the healthcare system operates by automating processes, increasing accuracy, and reducing costs that have existed for decades. We’re thrilled to partner with the veda team in their effort to modernize the largest sector of the U.S. economy at such a critical time."
