Ciitizen, a Redwood City, Calif.-based consumer health tech company, raised $17M in Series A financing.
The round was led by Andreessen Horowitz with participation from Section 32 and Verily. As part of the financing, Vijay Pande, General Partner of Andreessen Horowitz’s Bio fund, will join the Ciitizen board of directors. Michael Pellini, Managing Partner at Section 32, and Andy Harrison, Head of Business and Corporate Development at Verily, will join the board as observers.
The company will use the proceeds to accelerate platform development and expand commercial operations.
Led by Anil Sethi, CEO and Founder, and Premal Shah, COO and Co-Founder, Ciitizen is advancing a platform for patients to collect, organize, and share their medical records digitally.
The company’s weekly blog, The Voice of Ciitizens, offers opinions from healthcare thought leaders on ways to address some of healthcare’s most pressing challenges.
Sethi’s former company – Gliimpse – was acquired by Apple for its Health Records business.
