San Francisco, CA – November 13, 2013 — Healthline today announced it has been named to Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500™ for the fourth year in a row, which is a ranking of the 500 fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences and clean technology companies in North America. Healthline grew more than 200 percent during this period.

Healthline CEO and co-founder, Dean Stephens, credits an early focus on meeting the demands stemming from the extraordinary changes in the healthcare industry. Through the Healthline HIT Group, the company is powering solutions that are improving patient engagement and outcomes, expanding access, and lowering costs. At the same time, Healthline’s Media Group has seen a 168% increase in traffic to Healthline owned and operated sites since January 2013 alone thanks to a focus on an improved user experience, production of high quality and accessible health and wellness content, and a focus on search engine optimization (SEO).
