Healthline Secures Financing and Partnerships
Thanks to the wonders of technology (DVD's), this weekend I saw William Wylers' 1958 classic film, The Big Country. The days of settling a piece of land with 100 miles of fence and some ranch hands are gone, but the basics of a successful venture remain the same - we always need financial backing and reliable partnerships. In today's brave new world, we all need to figure out how we can work together to achieve common goals. Healthline Networks has built this website into a Top 10 health information website for consumers. Along the way, we have entered into technology distribution agreements with publishers, health plans, other search engines and online media companies.
Healthline combines powerful search technology with deep medical expertise to help people access reliable healthcare information. Judging from the feedback we get, we are making a difference. Securing strategic financing of $21 million will help us achieve our goal of being a global leader in health information services. New partnerships with GE/NBC, Aetna Ventures, Kaiser Permanente Ventures and our continued relationship with publishers Reed Elsevier, Mitsui & Co. and VantagePoint Venture Partners will allow us to step up our game and transform the way people get their healthcare information.
From our Board of Directors, Richard Carmona, MD, former US Surgeon General, says, "Healthline and its improved partner network are helping more families - here in America and across the globe - access health information that they can use to better manage their health." Healthline and its partners help to put power tools of knowledge and understanding about how to get healthy and stay healthy in your hands. Look for exciting new tools, content and products from us in the coming months, all reviewed by a team of clinicians who care about you!
