Management team outlines vision for patient-centric healthcare
San Francisco, CA - June 20, 2007 - HealthCare.com (www.healthcare.com), announced today a $6.1 million founders round of financing along with initial plans for development of a global platform for patient-centric health management. The HealthCare.com domain was purchased by current management in 2006. Over the next six months, HealthCare.com will unveil functionality that allows users to become informed healthcare consumers capable of working with care providers with unprecedented efficiency. Vertical search, access to online medical records and community features are core elements of the new website. The news was announced today by Robert Monster, Chairman of HealthCare.com, at the Dow Jones Healthcare Innovations Conference in San Francisco.
HealthCare.com has developed a proprietary vertical search engine for healthcare that provides categorized results specific to a topic with the option to save and share the results to a personalized health page. In addition, HealthCare.com´s HIPAA compliant solutions include access to highly-secure storage of patient health data, online interaction with e-consult enabled healthcare providers, prescription ordering and financial services. Healthcare.com´s multinational management team brings a prior record of achievement in building industry-leading internet companies. HealthCare.com´s and services are supported by an advisory team comprised of leading medical professionals in multiple medical specialties, as well as strategic alliances with industry-leading solution providers.
"The Internet has already transformed many industries. The impact on Healthcare is only beginning. The magnitude of the global opportunity is difficult to overstate. Beyond search, the Internet is largely unrepresented in the rest of the healthcare industry workflow.” said Robert Monster, Chairman of HealthCare.com. “Our goal is to create a new consumer-driven health experience - one that is not currently available. We will be giving individuals the power to take greater control of their health decisions while also enabling the healthcare professionals to evolve to a more sustainable economic model.”
Launched in December 2006, HealthCare.com allows consumers to take personal control of their healthcare. Our content and technology platform connects consumers with information, enabling tools, online communities and integrated workflow for working with care providers. With HealthCare.com´s easy-to-use web tools, users will be able to find, organize and share healthcare information, products and services that are specific to their needs - allowing for a new model of patient-driven healthcare.
