PokItDok, which provides APIs for the healthcare industry, has raised $34 million in Series B round of funding, led by Lemhi Ventures. With this new investment, the company’s total funding has hit $39 million following a $4.3 million Series A round in June 2014.

Launched in 2011, PokItDok provides software framework for things like payment processing, eligibility checks from insurance companies, referrals, claims submissions, online scheduling, patient identity management and provider search. Said framework allows developers to build out healthcare based apps and services, ranging from consumers scheduling a doctors’ appointments, connecting to insurance companies for eligibility checks, or quick payments or referrals in the doctor’s office.

PokItDok has relationships with more than 300 insurance providers nationally to allow easy transfer of data between patients, providers, and insurers.
