CareDoxNew York City-based mobile medical record system CareDox (formerly MotherKnows) has raised $1.2 million, according to an SEC filing. This brings the company's total funding to at least $6.1 million.

Existing CareDox investors include First Round Capital, Charles River Ventures, Band of Angels, and Giza Ventures. The company raised its previous round in August 2014.

Schools and parents can use CareDox’s online and mobile-enabled system to store students’ data. Academic institutions’ health providers will have access to a student’s immunization records, medical history, allergies, medications, and special dietary needs. CareDox believes this platform will help parents avoid filling out forms with this data every year before school starts.

“CareDox’s complete suite of products will increase student safety, reduce the clerical workload on nurses, and improve efficiency in monitoring student health and communicating with parents,” CareDox Founder and CEO Hesky Kutscher said in a statement in February.

The platform syncs with the student information system, the State Immunization Registry, and providers’ EMRs. It also offers tools for nurses to help them with enrollment, approvals, daily visits, medications, screenings, and secure messaging, which they can use to communicate with parents. CareDox also offers schools a reporting module, which provides analytics about student health and safety.

Parents have control over who can see the data in their CareDox account and some potential viewers could be nurses, teachers, camp leaders, daycare admins, cafeteria staff, administrators, coaches, bus drivers, and principals.
