NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Covera Health, the country’s leading provider of analytics-based
programs to reduce medical misdiagnoses and improve quality of care,

The financing was led by Equity Group Investments (EGI), the private
investment firm led by Sam Zell. “EGI, with their flexible capital base
and strong sense of engagement, is an ideal partner for us,” said Ron
Vianu, CEO, Covera Health.
The round also included select strategic and individual investors.
Covera Health plans to use the proceeds to deepen existing clinical
