mHealthWatch learned Tuesday that HealthTap‘s network of U.S. licensed doctors has grown to more than 100,000.
These doctors have joined HealthTap in its “virtual care revolution” as a means to enable people everywhere to access quality care from any mobile device or personal computer, and for doctors to deliver care anytime from anywhere.
To date, HealthTap says it has served more than 4.3 billion answers from its doctors to patients. The service itself has now helped 250 million people in more than 100 countries around the world.
This unprecedented doctor movement has already made a remarkable impact: HealthTap doctors have received more than 22,800 notes thanking them for saving a person’s life or that of a loved one. The virtual care movement has created the largest network of doctors in the world who are active online, serving patients, and making a difference.
“Every day we hear from many patients and doctors alike that traditional healthcare is increasingly difficult to access in a timely manner, delivered with uneven quality and is increasingly impersonal,” said Ron Gutman, the CEO of HealthTap. “Together with a powerful and rapidly growing movement of top doctors we are fixing that dynamic by using technology to bring back the elements of healthcare that have been lost—speed, quality and compassion. We are humbled by the doctors’ engagement, inspired by their mission to help people and empowered by their support to build a healthier happier world.”
