Center City’s Phrase Health raises $3 million, led by LionBird

Three-year old Phrase Health, a maker of SaaS-based electronic health record data tools, raised $3 million round lead by VC firm LionBird, with participation from Vizient and BioAdvance.

The 2001 Market St.-based company was founded by clinical informatics physicians and spun out of technology developed at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia in 2018. Its software provides web-based analytics dashboards and collaboration tools to better understand clinical processes and electronic interventions such as alerts and order sets.
