HealthTap enables consumers to forge a relationship with a personal doctor who will partner with them to care for their health. With doctors available 24/7 from any device via text or video, a library of member-asked doctor-answered questions on any health-related topic or symptom, and an AI-powered symptom checker, HealthTap offers robust primary care to anyone who needs it.
The partnership with Health Gorilla will allow HealthTap to increase the labs and referral options available to their physicians and patients and aggregate their patients' historical medical records, all of which will help them improve clinical outcomes and reduce costs. HealthTap will be announcing their new cutting-edge features and services over the next two quarters.
"We are very excited to be partnering with Health Gorilla," said Hammad Saleem, Chief Innovation Officer at HealthTap. "With access to more choices of lab and imaging providers and fully integrated patient records, we are well-positioned to deliver more convenient and better care."
