FARMINGTON — Medical tech company Innovatient Solutions has received a $500,000 grant from Connecticut Innovations Inc. (CII) to continue developing an information system for patients.
The nVision Information Therapy Solution utilizes the television in a patient’s hospital room as a portal to connect with informational resources as well as with games, videos and the Internet.
The system allows patients to connect with health-care providers, clinical teams and family members to assist in the recovery process. The system also has the capability to interface with other hospital systems and medical records.
CII made an initial $500,000 investment in the company in 2011. The latest is part of a $2 million extended round of funding from CII and angel investors.
