SAN FRANCISCO--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--100Plus, the personalized health prediction startup, (www.100plus.com) announced today that it has raised additional seed funding from Greylock Discovery Fund partners John Lilly and Reid Hoffman, Felicis Ventures and Band of Angels Acorn Fund. This comes in addition to initial funding by Founders Fund and Peter Thiel. 100Plus is developing an interactive health application that leverages large clinical datasets to show users their future health, and uses game mechanics to encourage incremental changes in behavior that can help extend healthy lifespans.
“The support we have received from these top notch investors shows again that there is a significant opportunity in the convergence of health, data and technology.”
"We're huge believers that data and technology can transform lives, and so are excited to support 100Plus's vision to use health data as a foundation to meaningfully change human behavior. If I'm able to compare myself to others like me -- and understand what changes I can make to increase my quality and longevity of life -- that's a powerful tool," said John Lilly, partner at Greylock Partners. "We're incredibly impressed by the 100Plus team and vision, and look forward to helping them grow."
100Plus, the first consumer health application built on the Practice Fusion platform, is led by health data analytics veteran Chris Hogg and supported by co-founder Ryan Howard (CEO of Practice Fusion, the leader in Electronic Medical Records). 100Plus builds on the Practice Fusion Research Division’s proprietary clinical dataset of 26 million de-identified records and public datasets from the CDC and HealthData.gov.
“This funding will allow us to rapidly grow our data analytics, engineering and user experience teams and build out our initial product,” said Hogg. “The support we have received from these top notch investors shows again that there is a significant opportunity in the convergence of health, data and technology.”
100Plus plans a beta launch to consumers in mid-2012.
