HealthTap unveils first end-to-end mobile health service that gets smarter with every visit thanks to data and information from more than 62,000 U.S. doctors and 100 million members!
PALO ALTO, Calif.—July 30, 2014— HealthTap+ today announced its groundbreaking next generation digital health service, redefining personal health for a new era of always-on mobile communications. HealthTap Prime is the first and only end-to-end virtual care solution that’s available to everyone, anytime, with a simple tap on a smartphone, tablet or even wearable smartwatch.
Never before have people been able to access care on a digital platform that is:
- Immediately accessible: consult caring, experienced doctors, when and where you need it most. HealthTap is the only marketplace with apps for both doctors and patients across all platforms.
- Utterly reliable: receive medical advice, and trusted information directly from some of the world’s most trusted doctors. Get prescriptions and refills delivered straight to your home or your local pharmacy.
- Completely personalized: access answers, news, and tips created by doctors and tailored just for you. View the most relevant content based on your Health Graph—a custom digital map of your personal health and well-being.
The game-changing HealthTap Prime is a subscription-based service that includes 24/7 live, unlimited Virtual Consults with top doctors via HD video, audio, and chat. It also provides free access to its world’s most comprehensive and ever-growing knowledge-base of doctor-created health answers (more than 1.8 billion served!), and to hundreds of thousands of valuable doctor-created tips. HealthTap+ doctors also curate fresh health news, review relevant mobile apps, and prescribe customized checklists just for you, to ensure you stay engaged and continue to manage your health even after a doctor’s visit.
“Imagine a world where people everywhere have instant ubiquitous access to the best doctors, who genuinely care about them and want them to feel good every day,” said Ron Gutman, HealthTap’s founder and CEO.“ Just like that night when my sister woke up to her son crying with high fever and didn’t know what to do; or a few years ago in my travels around the world, when friends and I needed medical attention, but were far from reliable professional help; or recently when a team member was concerned about a rash he discovered while at work and didn’t know whether it was serious or not. We could have all greatly benefited from having immediate access to trusted doctors, which could have saved time, money, and potentially a life!”
Gutman founded HealthTap+ based on his core belief that healthcare is a fundamental human right, and the company is still offering the basic services for free, with unlimited access to HealthTap’s Q&A resources, tips and news. Those interested in a premium service can now subscribe to HealthTap Prime for a special introductory price for families: $99/month + $10/month for every additional family member.
Dr. Geoffrey Rutledge, HealthTap’s Chief Medical Officer added: “having served more than 100 million people, and 100,000 doctors, we now understand how to marry technical innovation with clinical expertise and—perhaps most importantly—with compassionate care. With this experience, we’ve decided to redefine healthcare, and introduced an affordable revolutionary service that’s easily accessible and always-on. No more waiting for days or weeks to see a doctor. No more endless internet searches when seeking answers to health questions, no more calling to schedule appointments, traveling to clinics, filling paper forms, sitting in waiting rooms, and trying to remember the doctor’s follow up instructions. HealthTap Prime is the one place to go for trusted and caring medical information, for immediate Virtual House Calls, and for peace of mind, at all times!”
With the new HealthTap Prime, millions everywhere now have immediate access to an easy to use, affordable health companion where they can learn more about their health, get help from top doctors, and take action to feel good everyday.
