Israeli Startup Carbyne offers emergency response technology. Global Medical Response, the largest private emergency medical services provider in the USA, led a $20 million round of funding in Carbyne. Aimed at redefining emergency collaboration amid the public health crisis, Carbyne will be working closely with Global Medical Response to develop advanced and widely applicable interactive communication solutions for the health and medical sectors, as well as to construct new dedicated domestic resources.

To date, Carbyne has raised a total of $73 million since its launch in 2015. The company’s January 2021 funding directly supported product development and the growth of Carbyne’s global workforce, and ultimately increased revenue by 70% in the first quarter. Carbyne expects this to triple by the end of the year.

Response time to any medical emergency is crucial to saving lives. Whether a heart attack, a car crash, or something seemingly benign, advancements in technology and quality of services provided by emergency medical teams have helped to increase survival rates. But even the best paramedics in the world have a limited window of time in which they can save a life. Increasing response times is yet another example of how Startup Nations also leads the way in medtech.

Founded in 2014 by Chairman & CEO Amir Elichai, R&D Manager Yony Yatsun and CTO Alex Dizengoff, Carbyne calls itself the global leader in emergency collaboration technologies. Carbyne boasts that it is already the largest rich-data provider globally, delivering over 155M data points per year. In addition, the company’s data platforms enable first responders and Emergency Call Centers to connect with the caller via highly secure communication omni-channel with no app required. Declaring its mission to redefine emergency collaboration, Carbyne provides a “unified cloud native solution that enables ECCs, first responders, citizens and the state to share live actionable data that can lead to more efficient, transparent operations and ultimately save lives.”

“We want to help drive the modernization of systems that communities rely on in emergencies. We believe that live, interactive solutions can not only bridge the intersection between human communications and technology, but can have a real impact on patient care and patient outcomes. This past year has made it clear that health and medical services are most poised for new and innovative care solutions,” states Randy Owen, Chief Executive Officer of Global Medical Response.

“Carbyne has built the collaboration ecosystem that emergency and medical services have been waiting for. Our cloud-based platforms have been designed to create live collaboration and interoperability allowing us the opportunity to expand into new areas. This new alliance with GMR brings to health services a new dimension of live call management between callers, emergency telecommunicators, agencies like EMS, nurses, hospitals and even insurance payers. This leap in emergency communication technology will save lives, immediately. It will help agencies collaborate better and share data and resources more efficiently – all with the end goal to better help callers in need,” states Amir Elichai, CEO and co-founder of Carbyne.
