“HealthTap is revolutionizing the way people and physicians find, share, and use health information, both on- and offline,” said Dr. Alan Greene, HealthTap medical director and clinical professor of pediatrics at Stanford’s Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital. “HealthTap puts us all — physicians and users — on the same page, delivering an integrated health experience that gives patients succinct, actionable medical information from trusted doctors — anytime, anywhere. Simultaneously, it empowers physicians to effortlessly extend their wisdom and improve the quality of patient care beyond their office hours.”
