- CareDox, a digital medical records company focused on schools, has raised another $900,000, bringing its total raised capital to $4.9 million.
- With the program, schools and parents store student health data; immunization records, medical history, allergies, medications, and special dietary needs.
- The goal of the company is to make life easier for parents and schools, making it so parents no longer have to fill out the same health forms every year and providing schools easier access to student data, as the health info syncs with student information systems, state immunization registries, and school health providers' EMRs.
While privacy is of course a fear with any digitized data, specifically student data, parents ultimately have full control. They decide who can see their child's data and choose from a list of potential viewers, including nurses, teachers, camp leaders, administrators, cafeteria staff, coaches, bus drivers, and principals.
The company was previously known as MotherKnows. It was selected in 2012 to join the inaugural class of Healthcare Transformers to participate in a three-year incubation program.
