HealthTap is an Interactive Health Network that connects thousands of North America’s best physicians with users to provide trusted answers to health questions anytime anywhere. HealthTap’s free web and mobile applications enable 24/7 access to health information from physicians. Healthtap recently secured $11.5 million in Series A Funding led by Mayfield Fund, Mohr Davidow Ventures, and Eric Schmidt’s Innovation Endeavors. HealthTap will use Series A funds to accelerate growth, recruit top talent, and engage more physicians and patients in the vibrant online HealthTap community said a release.“HealthTap has become the only place online where medical information is trusted both by physicians and by patients alike,” said Ron Gutman, HealthTap’s Founder and CEO. “Doctors interact with one another and rate each other every day based on the quality of their shared medical knowledge and its helpfulness to patients. This revolutionary approach, which we call ‘Trust Sourcing,’ makes it easy for members of the community to find the most reliable health information and the best doctors in town.”

All physicians who participate on HealthTap undergo background checks verifying their medical licenses and good standing. Approved physicians receive a free Virtual Practice from which they can lead the online health conversation, and the creation of health content. Through their Virtual Practices, physicians answer user questions, endorse answers written by other physicians, and help people find the best health information, while creating connections for in-person care.
