HealthTap: Birds of a Feather: Online Patient Communities

Ron Gutman has been fascinated with wellness, health and behavior change since before founding Well- sphere which he sold to HealthCentral in 2009. Last year we let him have fun telling us his Unmentionable theory of how to help people change their behavior, but this year it’s down to business. And that business is HealthTap–a community that combines a new way of helping consumers access personalized health information while helping a network of physicians deliver it. It wasn’t quite ready to be launched at our Spring Fling, but already HealthTap is in its second iteration and is spreading fast amongst consumers and clinicians.
