Date:2/9/2017

PALO ALTO, Calif., Feb. 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- HealthTap, the world's first Global Health Practice, providing 24/7 immediate access to top doctors via video, text, or voice, announced today that its most advanced services are now available in Chinese, the world's most spoken language. With this new vertical, the 1.4 billion Chinese-speaking people worldwide can get immediate access to U.S.-licensed doctors and their knowledge, quickly and cost-effectively via the HealthTap Chinese mobile app and website.

According to a report released by the US Census Bureau, Chinese is the second most spoken language in the United States. Additionally, the Chinese American population is the largest Asian American population in the United States, with Chinese immigrants comprising the largest single group of arrivals a year into the United States since 2013.

"Removing language barriers to the knowledge and the care of the world's best doctors is at the heart of HealthTap's mission to help people globally live healthier, longer, and happier lives," says Ron Gutman, HealthTap founder and CEO. "HealthTap strives to improve the health and well-being of humanity as a whole, and is saving many lives every day, and we're thrilled to serve an additional 1.4 billion people who can now benefit from faster, easier access to high- quality free and affordable care anytime anywhere."

With this new release, Chinese speakers domestically and abroad gain access to HealthTap's query-to-cure experience in Chinese including:

  • The world's largest library of personalized trusted answers, tips, and news, written and peer reviewed by more than 105,000 doctors in 141 specialties
  • Convenient immediate access to Virtual Consultations via text/video/voice with Chinese-speaking top doctors.
  • Lab test interpretations
  • Instant prescriptions and medication refills sent to a local pharmacy (currently available for US-based patients)
  • A comprehensive Personal Health Record (PHR)

"All the doctors in our extensive network have taken the Hippocratic Oath and have vouched to the words: 'I will remember that I remain a member of society, with special obligations to ALL my fellow human beings," says Dr. Geoffrey Rutledge, HealthTap's Chief Medical Officer and former faculty member at Harvard and Stanford University. "Our world leading doctors are committed to helping everyone regardless of origin, location or language, and are excited to now serve Chinese speaking people in 174 countries worldwide."
