Second Quarter 2015 Highlights

The second quarter of 2015 for Semler resulted in continued revenue expansion and substantial growth in system installations. Other highlights included:

  • Preparations were completed to schedule the initial launch of the next generation product for testing for vascular disease on August 1st. Semler believes that customers will be attracted to enhanced performance features and that the newly-cleared labeling will facilitate an expanded marketing adoption.
  • With the launch of WellChec™, Semler has developed a funnel of interest in this turnkey service solution among insurance plans and providers, as potential customers, and already has one new client initiating the testing service during the third quarter.

"We had our best quarter in terms of expansion of our installed base of licensed FloChec® units with continued sequential quarterly growth," said Dr. Murphy-Chutorian. "In addition to new clients, many of our current customers are ordering more product from us as they experience the economic and clinical benefits of our products and services, which we believe bodes well for continued revenue growth." He added, "Our goal is to help physicians and insurance plans evaluate their patients now in order to save medical costs later.  Early diagnosis may lead to more prevention and lower future healthcare costs."
