Silversheet Gets $5M For Medical Credentials

Los Angeles-based Silversheet, a startup which is modernizing the process of medical credentialing, said on Monday that it has raised $5M in a Series A funding round. The funding was led by Summation Health Ventures. Silversheet, which was co-founded by Dr. Miles Beckett, Dr. David Rakoff, Pat Cheung, and Steve Seigel, has now raised a total of $10.2M. Silversheet is making easier for medical professionals to be credentialed by hospitals and medical centers, streamlining the paperwork normally required to use those facilities. Silversheet's other backers include Upfront Ventures, Rincon Venture Partners, SV Angel, Slow Ventures, BAM Ventures, Act One Ventures, and Cyan and Scott Banister. Beckett, an MD, is also an Internet startup veteran, having co-founded EQAL (and having co-created "lonelygirl15"), as is Seigel (Hatched, Honor), along with Cheung (former VP of Products for EQAL); Rakoff is an anesthesiologist at St. John's Health Center.
