New York-based iMedix, a search engine for health information, has raised $2 million from unidentified angel investors. The site, which is launching today after a year in development, offers a basic vertical search engine on health, along with social tools to reach others with similar medical issues. The company claims it can then constantly refine its search results based on user interactions and response. It plans to position its service as a utility that can be added to third-party health sites. Founders Amir Leitersdorf and Iri Amirav were previously at Movota (sold to Bertelsmann) and MetaCafe respectively. The company faces numerous competitors in the health info space, so the challenge will be in setting itself apart with its social functions. Release.
