HealthTech Venture Point of Care Decision Support Is Now At Osborn370


Point of Care Decision Support has relocated from Woodbury, Minnesota to downtown St. Paul, inside the Osborn370 on Wabasha Street.

“We’re happy to here be at the Osborn370 now,” President & CEO Jay Syverson exclaims.  “We need to show that technology is the driver of economic revitalization in St. Paul, Minnesota.”

The venture offers SaaS focused on evidence-based clinical guidelines to help doctors with management at the point of care.

For example, conditions like asthma and anti coagulation are some severe chronic health challenges that require dosing parameters subject to constant change.  These can be closely measured and standardized by Point of Care’s software which is fully integrated with the EHR.

“We’re driving a national movement in evidence-based healthcare management,” Syverson says.  “I’ve been in healthcare for a long time and this is precisely why I joined earlier this year, it’s is an acute need in the healthcare industry right now.”

Prior to Point of Care, Syverson was engaged with Coherent Solutions, and previously with Optum for 5+ years as a VP of Data Management. His deeper healthcare background includes Achieve Healthcare and Boundary Medical.

Syverson’s leadership appointment in April of 2017 represents a change for the seven year old firm, which spun-out of Lighthouse Software, founded by Tim Michalski.

With literally a handful of current customers, Syverson sees his joining as ramp-up time for the company which was largely incubated inside Lighthouse until he came on board.

They currently count eight employees, four of which are located in Minnesota and four elsewhere.

“We’re finalizing a round of recapitalization,” he adds, “Combining that with our relocation we do anticipate hiring more in the first quarter of 2018.”

Point of Care represents the fifth technology firm to relocate at Osborn370, the former Ecolab HQ purchased by a group of local investors to grow St. Paul’s relationship with the technology industry.

They are following the likes of Structural, Oppsource, Reeher, and Lighthouse Software.
