OncologyCloud, a platform developed by Flatiron Health, is already in partnership with more than 25 cancer centers to help address some of the bottlenecks in cancer care.
When Flatiron Health emerged in 2012 with a mission to improve oncology care, its founder predicted it would either be "a great success or a horrible failure." Now the Big Data startup is reportedly on the cusp of taking a major step towards the better of these two outcomes, with Fortune writing Google's ($GOOG) venture capital wing is leading a $100 million financing round.
Flatiron has established links to Google. The oncology startup's founders sold their last business to the search giant for $81 million. After leaving Google, the founders, Zach Weinberg and Nat Turner, set up Flatiron, began talking to physicians about the main bottlenecks in cancer care and created a Big Data platform to address some of the problems. The platform, OncologyCloud, aggregates clinical and financial data from electronic medical records and billing systems.
