SharePractice, a San Francisco, CA-based provider of a social medical reference app, raised $1.3m in seed funding.
Backers included FF Angel, Base VC, Scrum Ventures, China Rock and Lloyd Taylor.
The company is using the funds to expand the team and further accelerate the growth of SharePractices core technologies.
Led by Dr. Andrew Brandeis and Benoit Carrier, SharePractice has launched a free iOS app that allows doctors to “publish” findings, generate feedback, review conventional therapies, and incorporate new medicines into a collective knowledge base.
According to a note, it is used by more than 5,000 clinicians in any field of medicine to access and search diagnoses, gain insight into the preferred ways to treat any illness based on the real experience of other medical doctors.
Via the platform, doctors can share their favored treatment methods and “rate” their peers’ entries, influencing others’ decisions and enhancing their own reputation throughout the medical community.
