About Us

CuraCloud™ is a venture-backed company formed to accelerate the use of AI to improve healthcare efficiency and precision through better diagnostics. Our founding team formed the company in early 2016, having previously designed AI features for some of the worlds most advanced diagnostic imaging equipment manufacturers.

Today our multidisciplinary R&D team includes more than 20 PhDs from leading US universities with field experience in machine learning, deep learning, computer vision, medical image analysis, genomic sequencing, and molecular biology. Our team members have published over 100 articles in peer-reviewed science journals, and have accumulated decades of experience working with healthcare delivery systems world-wide.


The future of smarter healthcare is artificial intelligence. CuraCloud has attracted strong financial backing because it leads the field in using the power of machine learning to enhance healthcare effectiveness, precision and efficiency worldwide.

CuraCloud investors bring an unmatched breadth and depth of experience in introducing disruptive technologies across global markets. They see outstanding growth potential in healthcare markets worldwide, and regard CuraCloud’s technology as a key ingredient for improving and expanding access to high-quality healthcare across the globe.


CuraCloud is actively seeking collaborators to achieve smarter healthcare through machine intelligence. Examples of our collaborations:

  • Radiology workflow software company:  Clario Medical is collaborating with CuraCloud to use AI to prioritize radiology worklists, so that the most urgent exams are seen first.
  • Cancer center: A cancer research center is working with us to use Natural Language Processing to extract data from unstructured clinical documents in order to populate a cancer registry.
  • Academic research: Multiple groups are collaborating with CuraCloud to better detect circulating tumor cell DNA to aid cancer detection.


Stack of books symbolOur multidisciplinary scientific team has published well over 100 articles in leading journals, textbooks, and proceedings of international scientific conferences, even though our major focus is product development.
