Immunization data company raises $760K

Local immunization data venture MedPass Health has raised $760,000 from its founders and seven angel investors and aims to grow its staff to 20 from today's half dozen over the next year. CEO Hallett Ogburn and his team also have struck a partnership with the University of Alabama Management Information Systems program. Milt Capps has that info and more — including another capital raise — here.

The UA alliance helped MedPass develop its initial platform by drawing on a formalized team of six UA MIS students, who each work 20 hours per week, with guidance from MedPass engineers and oversight by a sponsoring faculty member, Joanne Hale, Ph.D. The UA MIS students are now working on MedPass iOS and Android mobile apps, which are to be available by late Summer.

Life Science Tennessee heads for the Hill

Milt Capps at Venture Nashville has touched base with the team at Life Science Tennessee, which will next week visit Capitol Hill to make their case for tens of millions in funding from various sources. Along with Life Science Tennessee Chairman Steve Bares and other board members, Hall Strategies Partner Abby Trotter will represent the organization.

Bares and Trotter told VNC that LSTN does not yet have sponsors for legislation to provide the support the association seeks, but LSTN is on the lookout for such opportunities and is steadily engaging legislators on the matter. They do not pretend that success this year is do-or-die, and say they plan to persist, regardless the outcome in this session.
