PocketHealth Nears Launch After Raising $500,000 In Seed Round

The projected May release of Cognovant’s health record management app, PocketHealth, looks to become a reality thanks to a recent $500,000 seed round closing. The announcement was made today by Cognovant, the Kansas City, Mo.-based startup that specializes in personal health record technology for mobile devices.

“This seed round of funding enabled development of PocketHealth and its forthcoming introduction into the Android and iOS markets,” Ketcherside said in the release

PocketHealth will mark Cognovant’s first mobile product and should hit the App Store and Google Play Store in a couple of weeks. App essentials will be available for free, with paid upgrades for PocketHealth PHR and PocketHealth Family.

The app itself is a way for users to manage their wellness. Medical information is encrypted and stored on a user’s mobile device for easy access and control. Cognovant says PocketHealth will be user-friendly with features such as “pick lists and smart searches so you don’t need to know all the medical terms,” but also that the app is “based on international data standards with the same foundation as a full electronic medical record.”

PocketHealth lets you:

  • Manage your health data
  • Connect with your providers
  • Support your health decisions
  • Link to knowledge resources
  • Help you understand the quality of care you receive
  • Enable you to interact with communities of care
  • Disease/condition specific modules in development for future release

Having a digital filing cabinet for all your medical records that is instantly accessible is an indispensable tool for “anyone who juggles multiple medications or medical conditions, for parents who must keep track of their kids’ immunizations, for caregivers who manage appointments, and for anyone who is tired of filling out the same forms at the doctor’s office over and over again.”
