Sermo – Doctors S-Network closes quick funding Round 2

Okay, this news had been floating around unconfirmed for the past week. Within 3 months of the announcement of their last funding round, Sermo has closed $9.5 million round of Series B funding. This funding round was led by new investor Okay this news had been floating around unconfirmed for the past week. SoftBank Capital. Existing Sermo investor, Longworth Venture Partners, also participated in the funding. Earlier Sermo had raised $3 million in its Series A.

Sermo building up nicely to provide a knowledge sharing network for physicians where they can share opinions and observations from their daily work and in this process learn about emerging trends. Sermo network current has almost 6,000 doctors from all 50 states in over 30 different specialties and increasing by 400-600 physicians every week. Currently Sermo is open only for doctors to sign-up, and authenticates physician credential in real-time ensuring that only physicians can become members. Other people looking to sign-up can add their names to the waitlist, as Sermo builds the non-physician end of the platform.

Personally I have come across a few blogs by doctors who want to join a platform enabling better communication in their community or who want to make better use of IT in streamlining their everyday work. Sharing platforms like Sermo can aid this collaboration plan in a big way.
