John de Souza, CEO, MedHelp
Jane Sarasohn-Kahn interviews John about his sixteen-year-old company, MedHelp. The company has quietly and organically seen its communities and Q&A forums with institutions like Cleveland Clinic & Vanderbilt grow to around 10 million monthly visitors. MedHelp has also added the ability for patients to track many aspects of their health, and now is working with GE on developing more tracking apps, including I’m Expecting, and John is on the HealthyMagination Advisory board.
MedHelp is an ideal subject for a Health 2.0 case study due to its spectacular growth. CEO John de Souza spoke at Spring Fling: Matchpoint Boston (May 14-15, 2012), a conference focused on Health 2.0 partnerships and growth strategies, about his company’s successful partnership with GE.
