Better Day Health announced today it has received an investment from The Angels of Southwest Louisiana. The company is a Louisiana-based electronic health record (EHR) startup that, with this investment, will initiate their second beta site, Center for Orthopedics.
The Better Day™ Health platform was launched on March 5th, 2013 during the annual Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) conference and exhibition held in New Orleans.
“The healthcare system in the U.S. remains highly inefficient, which is creating tremendous business opportunities for startups like Better Day Health, which automates documentation for physicians using voice recognition and mobile devices,” said Angels of Southwest Louisiana Managing Director Ron McGinley.
The Angels of Southwest Louisiana is a group of private, accredited angel investors who are interested in early-stage, high-growth companies. Their purpose is to provide a positive impact on the Southwest La. economy by supporting innovation in the area and to learn from members and entrepreneurs. The Angels is a member of the Angel Capital Association, which brings together around 200 angel groups and more than 8,000 investors.
“As a Louisiana-based startup, Better Day Health is fortunate to have a regional organization like the Angels of Southwest Louisiana invest in our company,” said CEO Peter Ragusa, MD, MPH. “In addition to providing critical working capital, we are excited about Angels’ member Della Blake Rose joining our Board of Directors, which further strengthens our leadership team.”
