CareDox raising $3.1 million to expand its health record platform


New York City-based CareDox provides a care coordination platform for taking care of kids, while also automating the collection of health-related data with no paper forms required. Once collected, this information can be accessed on mobile devices and computers by both parents and third parties like school nurses.

Founded in 2010, the company grew up from the NYC-based accelerator Startup Health Academy, and it is now raising some venture capital. According to a filing with the SEC and brought to our attention by VentureBeat, CareDox has managed to raise about $2.5 million of a targeted $3.1 million round. The filing says that the investment comes in exchange for both equity in the company, or stock options, or other securities.

This isn’t the first money they’ve got; back in April 2011, CareDox took $1.5 million in debt financing.

When prompted to share details, the company’s representative was silent. CareDox’s site does include some names, though, including – First Round Capital, Charles River Ventures, Band of Angels and Giza Ventures.
