2014 was a transformative year for Semler.

  • The primary focus of sales and marketing was shifted to expanding our base of clients who are insurance plans with Medicare Advantage patients.
  • Four new independent Board members, a CFO with public company experience, financial and sales management, and a critical mass of sales and marketing personnel were brought into the company.
  • Revenue began to accelerate in the third quarter of 2014 as current customers increased order sizes and new customers signed on to license our FloChec® product.
  • Expanded training programs, post-market clinical studies and product improvements were completed.

"We have seen accelerating revenue this quarter compared to the previous quarter," said Dr. Murphy-Chutorian. "We look forward to an exciting 2015 in terms of gaining traction with our business model and furthering our goals to become a standard of care in the risk assessment marketplace."
