Capsule Tech gets growth investment from JMI Equity

Capsule Tech, Inc, whose products seamlessly connect virtually any medical device to any information system in any care area, has completed a strategic investment from JMI Equity, a growth equity firm focused on investing in growing software, Internet, business services, and healthcare IT companies. In conjunction with the investment, Capsule has named Gene Cattarina as its chief executive officer to lead the company in its next phase of growth. Cattarina, an experienced healthcare IT executive, succeeds Arnaud Houette, who will continue to serve on Capsule’s board of directors.

Most recently, he was CEO of Impulse Monitoring, a provider of outsourced intraoperative neuromonitoring solutions to hospitals and other healthcare facilities.
