Lifecom Inc., a Portland company that has developed a graphical medical record and diagnostic system that employs artificial intelligence, raised more than $1 million from angel investors, mostly consisting of physicians. Lifecom plans to use the funding primarily for sales and marketing, said CEO and founder Dr. Steve Datena. It will also help product development and engineering.

Lifecom also announced the appointment of Dr. Charles Kilo, chief medical officer at Oregon Health & Science University, to its board. He is also one of the investors. "It's a very advanced product with advanced capabilities," Kilo said. "An interesting aspect of health care has been to get physicians to use electronic health records. It's taken off recently."
