Quantia Inc., a Waltham company that designs software to improve collaboration among physicians, planned to announce Tuesday that it has raised a $10 million financing round that will help market its latest service.
The round was led by venture capital firm Safeguard Scientifics of Wayne, Pa., a new investor in the company that contributed $7.5 million. Existing investors funded the remainder of the round, bringing the 7-year-old company’s fund-raising total to $39 million.
