Local ‘angel’ investor boosts medical scribing business

SARANAC LAKE — Point Positive, an “angel investor” group based in Saranac Lake, recently announced a $25,000 initial investment in Provider One, a start-up medical scribing business that made a pitch at Point Positive’s fall event.

Point Positive’s investment was part of a $200,000 seed round with other investors.

Provider One presented its business plan for an app that will allow users to do scribing remotely, bringing the service to rural and underserved areas. The business is currently based in Syracuse but is looking to have an office in the Canton and Potsdam area, close to aspiring medical students and where it can recruit scribes.

Provider One is the first New York state Minority and Women-Owned Business Enterprise that Point Positive has invested in.
