Health IT firm OnPoint Medical Diagnostics seeks $5M

Vertical Health Solutions, which does business as OnPoint Medical Diagnostics, is seeking $5 million in exchange for equity and options, according to a regulatory filing.

So far, $525,000 has been raised. William Cavanaugh is the president and CEO of the company, while Rochester real estate mogul Gus Chafoulias is one of its directors.

OnPoint Medical Diagnostics, a Minnesota health IT firm, makes MRI quality assurance software.

It did a reverse merger with Vertical Health Solutions, a Florida corporation, becoming its wholly owned subsidiary in April, thereby separating itself from a stumbling incubator which gave it life.

The company’s technology was developed inside Mayo Clinic before Mayo licensed it to the company. OnPoint’s software automates a mandatory accreditation process required of hospitals and imaging centers to get federal reimbursement for MRI scans. A federal mandate to require regular accreditation is set to go into effect in January 2012. Private insurers are already requiring accreditation, Cavanaugh explained in an earlier interview.

    Is this news or an ad? If it’s news I have a son who’s looking for venture capital too–and in health care. He had a crew in Guam wiring up hospitals and connecting them to each other, to state agencies and federal. I admire MinnPost, but this is hardly news.
