CareDox is a pediatric healthcare technology company that connects K-12 public schools and their students with the broader healthcare ecosystem to deliver a health information sharing and care management solution for children. CareDox is enabling a new kind of pediatric care delivery system by providing free technology to K-12 public schools, bridging the gap between schools, parents, medical professionals, and managed care organizations. The company’s secure, HIPAA and FERPA-compliant platform captures student medical charts, medications and immunizations, and engages parents and providers with alerts about health events. CareDox currently serves more than 2 million children in 4,000 schools and has contracts with several large national health plans including United Healthcare, Molina, and Centene. Recently, CareDox acquired with HealthySchools, a Florida-based public-private partnership that seeks to promote pediatric health by administering influenza vaccines at partnered schools. HealthySchools is leveraging CareDox technology to manage the digital workflow associated with its vaccine and well care visit program for underserved children.

Founded in 2014 by a team of entrepreneurs across retail, banking, and healthcare IT, CareDox recently closed a Series B financing of $16 million, co-led by AI Life Sciences Investments LLC (a division of Access Industries a deep pocketed tech investor) and 7wire Ventures, with other investors including Founders Fund, Digitalis, Prolog Ventures, StartUp Health, and Wanxiang Healthcare Investments. CareDox has an engaging and authentic culture with an impressive team dedicated to improving the quality of pediatric health across the nation.
