Company description

HealthTap+ has reinvented the way people all over the world manage their health and well-being. Our free web and mobile apps enable 24/7 access to personalized, relevant, and trusted health information in the form of answers, tips, checklists, and news from over 67,000 U.S. doctors.

Members can get expert answers to their personal health questions, read personalized news and tips, and access expert reviews of health apps from HealthTap’s Medical Expert Network of more than 67,000 doctors for free.

In July 2014, HealthTap launched its premium HealthTap Prime subscription service. Prime members pay a monthly subscription fee for unlimited live consults with physicians via HD video, voice, and text chat. The service is available via any mobile device or personal computer.

HealthTap then launched HealthTap Concierge in October 2014, which connects members with their own doctors, via HD video, voice, and text chat for a low, per-consult fee. No monthly subscription is required to use HealthTap Concierge.

HealthTap released its first annual AppRx Report in January 2015. Thousands of doctors on HealthTap independently reviewed tens of thousands of health and wellness apps available in the iOS and Android app stores and provided recommendations for those they deemed the best.

In March 2015, HealthTap launched RateRx, the first free, large-scale resource of doctor ratings and reviews for over 4,000 drugs and medications. It was created by doctors to help consumers understand the effectiveness of drugs and treatments based on doctors' real-world experience.

The company is backed by leading investors such as Khosla Ventures, Eric Schmidt’s Innovation Endeavors, Mayfield Fund, and Mohr Davidow Ventures.

Competitive advantage

Online health information is currently overwhelming and confusing for all of us. It’s hard to know what to trust and information is never about you.

Today, content on many health sites is organized around topics like “symptoms,” “conditions,” and “treatments,” rather than the most important subject – you. HealthTap is the first service to take your personal health profile and individual circumstances into account when delivering health information to you.

Furthermore, unlike other online resources that focus on health articles, consumer opinions, and/or community forums, HealthTap is focused on providing trustworthy, validated, expert medical knowledge. The personalized information you’ll receive comes from more than 550 leading physicians in our fast growing Medical Expert Network, and from our proprietary doctor-created Knowledge-Base of deep medical research. This helps make the information on HealthTap contextual, relevant, and trustworthy.

Additionally, the information you find on other consumer health websites is often lengthy, dependent on “medical speak” and composed of text alone. HealthTap uses data visualization tools and user-friendly graphics to communicate complex medical information in a way that’s easy for everyone to understand.  You’ll also receive succinct expert answers and tips that make information fast and simple to understand at anytime and from anywhere.
