A startup Rochester, Minn., company has raised $3 million to take Mayo Clinic-created software to hospitals throughout the U.S. and around the world.
Kardia Health Systems has licensed Mayo Clinic's Echo Information Management System software created for the hospital's cardiology department. Now after raising $3 million in capital between January and May, the 11- to 12-person company is ready to start marketing the software.

Kardia will launch the software product at the Annual Scientific Sessions of the American Society of Echocardiography in Seattle this weekend.
