A Farmington biotech startup has gotten $1 million from the state and other investors to continue developing an information system to improve communications between care providers and patients.
Innovatient Solutions Inc. got $500,000 from the state’s technology investment arm Connecticut Innovations Inc. (CI) and the rest from its unnamed founders and angel investors, CI said Wednesday.
Its first application, nVision Information Therapy Solution, will provide patients with education, communication services and entertainment through TV monitors in hospital rooms, authorities say.
Innovatient is housed in the University of Connecticut’s Cell and Genomic Sciences building in Farmington.
CI investment director Dan Wagner has a seat on Innovatient’s board of directors.
