New Orleans-based digital health company RDnote is the latest recipient of an investment by the Lafayette General Foundation. The company has confirmed the $250,000 investment through its subsidiary Healthcare Innovation Fund, which will be used to expand the company’s staff on both the technical and clinical side of the business.
RDnote designs technology- enabled products and services to capture and leverage nutrition data to drive better care across the care continuum. Their mission is to integrate clinical nutrition best practices throughout the healthcare industry using technology to improve quality of patient care.
“Investing in RDnote directly aligns with our Healthcare Innovation Fund, which was designed to invest in companies that are committed to increasing the quality of care given to patients through the use of technology,” said Lafayette General Foundation Executive Director Cian Robinson.
RDnote’s first investment from the Healthcare Innovation Fund was made in 2016, which led the company to implement its software at the Lafayette General Medical Center. They are now expanding into additional hospitals throughout Louisiana.
“We are very excited to see the impact on both patients and clinicians. Seeing our tools used to help patients improve their health in the hospital setting reinforces our mission to expand access to high quality nutrition care in all settings,” says RDnote founder Molly Hegarty.
