immediate access to top doctors and their knowledge via video, text, or

representing the next step in HealthTap’s global expansion of its
operations. HealthTap UK announced new apps and websites for British
doctors and patients to supplement and complement the care already

These apps and website leverage HealthTap’s proprietary medical ontology
to customize the content of the world’s largest and most trusted library
of doctor knowledge to people throughout England, Scotland, and Wales.
HealthTap has updated its software and algorithms to enable health
questions from people across the United Kingdom to receive prompt
answers from top doctors. Additionally, U.K.-licensed doctors are now
invited to apply and join the HealthTap Medical Expert network, which
currently spans more than 105,000 accredited doctors across 141
specialties. British doctors can now also benefit from access to the
world’s first Health Operating System, HealthTap HOPES™, and deliver
Virtual Care to their patients at their convenience from any mobile
device or personal computer. HealthTap can now better serve its U.K.
users with local best practices that address differences in culture and
terminology between the United States and the United Kingdom.

“Having served more than 4.8 billion answers by U.S. doctors to users in
174 countries, we’re very excited to be able to bring the experience and
expertise of top UK doctors to patients everywhere,” says Dr. Raj Goyal,
a former NHS doctor and the newly appointed Director of HealthTap UK,
LTD. “Starting today, patients everywhere in the United Kingdom can get
answers from our network of top doctors, now fortified with U.K.
licensed doctors in good standing with the General Medical Counsel. Via
HOPES, our proprietary Health Operating System, our users in the United
Kingdom will now have access to our extensive library of trusted doctor
knowledge — localized to the UK, as well as to a secure personal health
record, and a set of effective engagement tools including checklists and
tips. Now UK residents can join millions everywhere managing their
health and wellbeing, from query-to-cure.”

HealthTap UK, LTD is based at Kemp House, 160 City Road in London, and
is now hiring for local engineers, designers, and product managers, as
well as implementation and customer success specialists, and a variety
of other business roles.

“Over the last few years, even before the official HealthTap UK launch,
the number of British doctors who have expressed an interest to join the
HealthTap Medical Expert Network has been impressive and inspiring,”
said Ron Gutman, HealthTap Founder and CEO. “As a leading global source
for medical knowledge and immediate access to medical experts, we’re
thrilled to partner with top local doctors, as well as with health-care
systems, providers, and payers, just as we successfully did in New
Zealand earlier this year. We’re looking forward to working with these
top doctors and other U.K.-based partners to bring faster,
higher-quality, and compassionate care to British people everywhere.”
