Center City healthcare analytics company Picwell just raised $3 million, according to an SEC filing.

That brings the startup’s total funding in 2015 to just over $7 million. Picwell closed its first round of venture funding, $4 million, this summer.

It’s another influx of cash for the city’s health IT scene.

Picwell CEO Jay Silverstein was out of the country and not available to answer our questions yesterday, but we’ll have a followup story for you after the holidays, sit tight.

Here’s one bit of Picwell news, though: they recently hired Bob Lannon, the civic technologist with Philly roots who most recently worked at the Sunlight Foundation, the D.C.-based open gov org.
