Spokane-based startup Medcurity has raised additional funding that will allow it to hire more employees, boost its digital marketing presence and expand HIPAA security and privacy training.

Medcurity recently received $200,000 in a seed funding round from Washington Research Foundation Capital, bringing the total amount raised by the company to $737,500.

The company is planning to hire a chief information security officer, and for positions in sales and web development, Medcurity co-founder Amanda Hepper said.

Medcurity, founded in 2018 by Hepper and Joe Gellatly, offers a product that helps health care organizations remain in compliance with security laws and HIPAA, the federal law restricting release of medical information.

The product asks users questions to assess administrative, technical and physical risks within an organization. It then creates an “audit-ready” report and generates detailed action items.
