healthetreatment.com, a social health-information website where patients anonymously share health experiences, announces the company’s second round of angel funding. The funding comes at a time of significant growth for the one year old company.
‘I am very pleased to be part the patient empowerment movement,’ said Patrick O’Brien, one of the investors. ‘Doctors want to accelerate the flow of knowledge to patients and patients want to be more informed when managing their healthcare. healthetreatment is helping achieve this goal by providing a community for the dissemination of important health information.’
Users of healthetreatment have contributed over 800 conditions, 1100 symptoms and 1000 treatments to the site. Members from six continents and more than 30 countries have shared their experience living with a health condition. More than 50,000 people visit healthetreatment monthly to share information and learn from others who contribute ratings, reviews and comments. Visitors from Germany, Spain, France and Italy can now visit the site and find information in their native language.
Founded in February 2010 by a veteran team of online media experts with a passion for healthcare advocacy, the site is designed to empower patients to take control of their health. The site allows users to rate and compare various treatments for a variety of health conditions, from the common cold to *condition you want to drive traffic to*. This allows the user to become informed of all available treatments and to connect with others so they can have a proactive approach to manage their health condition.
