Infina Connect, a Cary-based digital health care company, points out that a new filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission is not for a new fund raiser.

“We noticed your story on our company Infina Connect at the link below, and want to clarify that we have not raised funding recently,” CEO Mark Henfer writes.

“You may have triggered this story on a Form D filing we made for funding raised from 12/31/12 through 2014. People seeing the article are erroneously assuming this is a new raise.”

Infina Connect Healthcare Systems Inc. raised the money from 16 investors, reported Chris Roush of North Carolina Business News Wire.

The company operates an electronic physician referral system. The goal is to deliver better care at lower costs.

Infina’s technology already has demonstrated the ability to attract investors, having raised some $3 million in 2015.

“Today, changes in reimbursement are forcing physicians to look for ways to deliver better care at lower cost,” Hefner has said.

“We address many of the underlying issues that drive up the cost of healthcare – gaps in communication, lack of care coordination, inefficiencies, missing information, missed prevention opportunities, and unnecessary services contribute as much as $390 billion of the almost $750 billion dollars of healthcare spending that is wasted annually. “

Infina Connect has been recognized in the 2013 Wall Street Journal Startup of the Year program and was named one of the 20 Most Promising Healthcare Tech Solutions by CIO Review magazine.
