About MedStack

Toronto based, MedStack was launched in 2015 as a cloud automation tech company that builds and manages healthcare privacy compliance into cloud hosting tools. This greatly de-risks application commercialization, and the standardized platform can help bring apps to market 60% faster.

MedStack now provides enhanced app hosting and actively managed compliance policies in several countries.

The company has raised a $2.4 million oversubscribed seed round led by TELUS Ventures, with participation from ScaleUP Ventures and Panache Ventures. Existing investor Ontario Centres of Excellence and several existing angel investors have also participated in this round.

MedStack’s mission is to enable more digital innovation to be adopted in healthcare so that cloud technologies may deliver care anywhere with smarter, more timely decisions and better experiences.

MedStack founders, CEO Balaji Gopalan and CTO Simon Woodside, have evolved their solution with the input of hundreds of digital health startups through programs including Dreamit Health, the Creative Destruction Lab and 500 Startups. Over 50 companies now run their apps integrated with MedStack’s healthcare compliance platform.
