Independa, the San Diego-based developer of the Artemis telehealth monitoring system and Angela social engagement/telecare platform, announced the launch of its pilot with LG announced at International CES this past January. LG’s Pro:Centric Healthcare TVs will run the cloud-based Angela application to allow seniors to easily set up daily medication and calendar reminders, access email and Facebook, browse the Web and play games using a specially designed remote. It will be piloted initially in senior living communities in Minneapolis, Pittsburgh and San Diego. Release
Independa’s VP Marketing Dan Chavez also confirmed to Editor Donna a Tuesday report on Dow Jones VentureWire that Independa has received $1 million in funding from ‘a variety of angels’ to help develop the LG collaboration and expand their technology reach into senior living communities.
Much more funding news in recent posts…is it a warming trend?
I continue to read positive news about Independa, but they continue to back off their delivery time of the product!
