"We are attracting investors who are also highly regarded surgeons, cardiologists and pain management specialists who endorses our mission and propels our efforts forward with additional medical validation," said Simon Schurr, CEO and Chairman of CMT Corp. "To date, we have had several exceptional and leading edge physicians and specialist using the platform, but these investors represent a new level of interest coming directly from super specialists who comprehend its full potential."
One of the new investors, Haim Blecher, MD, commented, "CMT Corp's cloud based solution is the answer to the current inefficiencies that plague the transfer and efficient use of existing healthcare information.

When I first saw CMT Corp's cloud-based platform I immediately saw so many different applications which could improve patient outcomes and access to care that I was excited to become involved."
These two specialists join a cardiologist from the A-series round, Nate E.
