iRxReminder, an Akron, Ohio-based provider of a healthcare patient management system, raised $250,000 in seed funding.
An unnamed Washington, DC-based angel investment group made the investment.
The company, which has raised $458k to date, will receive dispersements upon completion of specific milestones including the completion of novel add-on technology and FDA submission.
Led by Anthony Sterns, CEO, iRxReminder provides a mobile health application service focused on real-time medication adherence, care compliance, patient activation and data capture in disease, medicine, device or behavior-based care provision or research.
Its app, available in the Apple App Store, is a customizable, bidirectional tool that is used to conduct patient care management or intervention studies of individuals with complex chronic conditions, such as cancer, autoimmune disorders, diabetes, pulmonary and heart disease among others.
The company, which has completed projects with or currently has projects in progress with such institutions as Case Western Reserve University, Kent State University, University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Summa Health System, plans to evolve with FDA approval of the iLid, their automated dispensing and verification medication dispensing system as a medical device and a complete patient-centered clinical management and education system supporting accountable care and population health management goals.
