Human API Raises $6 Million
Written By Wearables.com
Human API is one step closer to connecting users to their health data sources thanks to capitalist venture companies. A SEC filing reveals that the startup has raised $6.6 million in a round of Series A funding with investors Andreessen Horowitz, BlueRun Ventures, Innovation Endeavors, and more.
Human API is a Palo Alto, California-based startup with a simple goal: to collect all kinds of health data from different devices and put it in one simple place. The company got some initial seed funding from the AngelPad program, an incubator for promising startups that provides mentorship and networking opportunities. In 2013, Human API graduated from the 10-week program founded by former Google employees.
Andrei Pop, the founder and CEO of Human API, told InformationWeek commentator Mark Baunstein that he wanted a system that was simple and easy to understand. “Our health data is stored in a lot of disparate datasets,” said Pop. “Due to very difficult technical challenges, we rarely get the opportunity to pull it all together and create a clear, quantitative picture of an individual’s health.”
Human API is an online and mobile platform that connects with various fitness trackers and manages medical records to create one clean, clear analysis of a person’s health. Pop says he want to make retrieving this data simple for physicians, nurses, researchers, and even caretakers.
The company is partnered with Jawbone, Basis, Fitbit, Pebble, Withings, iHealth, RunKeeper, MapMyFitness, and Moves–and they’re adding more fitness apps and trackers as they go on. This data is integrated with clinical, lab, and genetic data to give a full analysis of a person’s health. You can register to use Human API now on their website.
