CareDoxNew York City-based mobile medical record system CareDox raised $2.5 million, according to an SEC filing.

The filing also notes that they company aims to raise a total of just over $3 million. CareDox has raised around $4 million to date.

Existing CareDox investors include First Round Capital, Charles River Ventures, Band of Angels, and Giza Ventures.

Schools and parents can use CareDox's online and mobile platform to store students' data. Through the platform, academic institutions 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.

Parents have control over who can see the data in their CareDox account and some potential viewers could be nurses, teachers, camp leaders, cafeteria staff, administrators, coaches, bus drivers, and principals. The data is accessible via mobile devices or online. The company adds that this data could also be helpful for camps and daycares.

The company created CareDox from another product, called MotherKnows, which was an online health record service that allowed parents to view their child’s medical records via the web or mobile applications. In 2011, MotherKnows raised $1.7 million in seed funding. At the time, the company's plans for the product included targeting other consumer groups with specific health needs, such as home health care, and extended families.

Then in March 2012, the company joined StartUp Health's three-year accelerator alongside Basis and Medivo.
