San Francisco-based health data startup Human API has received a $10 million investment from SCOR Life & Health Ventures, a division of the France-headquartered reinsurer, to develop its platform. The company helps enable consumers to centralize and share their health data from sources like electronic health records (EHR), pharmacies, health apps, wearable devices and labs with healthcare providers and insurance carriers. Human API also lets users share data with the people and organizations that help manage their health, and the company claims thousands of organizations are able to accept health data through Human API — access users can grant and revoke with a few clicks. Due to the diversity of underlying data sources, the company takes a hybrid approach to retrieving data from across the ecosystem, such as API, FHIR, patient portals, and health information exchanges (HIEs).
