Briya Emerges From Stealth With Seed Funding to Revolutionize Healthcare Through Blockchain Powered Research

NEW YORK, April 20, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Briya, a disruptive healthcare data exchange network, announced today that it has completed a $5.5 million seed round led by Amiti Ventures with participation from global software investor Insight Partners and Innocare Health Investments. This investment is a vote of confidence in Briya's ability to deploy technology that will dramatically reduce time-to-medicine and improve patient care at every step of the way.

Briya has emerged from stealth backed by a robust technological foundation that delivers the "holy grail" of good data: longitudinal, live, and linked with unparalleled patient privacy protection. Noted for its groundbreaking decentralized architecture, Briya's platform offers easy, continuous access to one of the most secure and compliant data exchange networks in the healthcare industry. Its blockchain design allows pharmaceutical companies, researchers, and life sciences institutions to engage with data in a way that provides bulletproof compliance with HIPAA, GDPR, and DUA Contracts. In addition, the solution is fast and simple to use, providing FHIR standardization and granting data access 10 times faster than any other solution on the market.

"Briya's founders, David Lazerson and Guy Tish, have assembled the right team for their mission to enable researchers and hospitals to more effectively collaborate in treating and potentially curing so many diseases," said Ben Rabinowitz, Founder and Managing partner at Amiti Ventures.

"Briya is an exceptional company that can make a real difference in the way researchers use data to make thousands of previously unimaginable new treatments possible," said Liad Agmon, Managing Director at Insight Partners. "A secured, standardized data exchange network will help achieve equity for all patients, and Briya provides that and more."

Briya's secured data exchange technology can fulfill a critical need in the industry.

"Existing healthcare data infrastructure is siloed, inefficient, and ineffective," said Fabio Lievano, AbbVie VP Safety Science and a Briya Advisor. "Researchers and healthcare organizations are being presented data in a vacuum, making it difficult to provide the patient with the most accurate treatment. Briya connects the data to immediately display a complete picture of the patient's comprehensive history."

The company has offices in Tel Aviv, Nashville and New York, and is currently forming partnerships with leading research groups and healthcare systems to further its expansion in the United States.
