BROOMFIELD - MedAware Systems Inc. is about halfway through a $500,000 equity funding round as it prepares to launch a yet-to-be-announced product next year.

A recent filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission showed that Broomfield-based MedAware, with an office at 3400 Industrial Lane, had raised $130,000 in the round. But chief executive Michael Willis, a former executive at Boulder Imaging, said that figure is closer to $230,000 now.

The company previously raised a $200,000 round in December.

Willis declined to divulge many details of the new company, saying only that it had to do with "big medical data." He said the company is hoping to have a patent awarded by early 2015.

"Until we get that in place, we're kind of keeping it under wraps," Willis said.

Willis said the projected launch date for the company is sometime next summer.

William Kent, another former Boulder Imaging employee, is also listed on the regulatory filings as a MedAware executive along with Neil Cox and Zung Tran. Cox and Willis worked together as executives at Tombstone Technologies, a software company acquired by Texas-based Hunt Global Resources in 2010. Tran is a biostatistician, and is listed as a professor on the University of Colorado-Denver's website.
