Internet health companies get hot again

The Wall Street Journal reports that internet companies focusing on health care are getting hot. Five start-up companies have raised about $41 million in the last year –not a huge amount but more than has been seen for a while. The companies include:

  • Healthline Networks –a search company
  • A Place for Mom –an eldercare referral network
  • Healthia –a comparison shopping company (not to be confused with Healia, which I’ve reviewed)
  • LifeMed Media –an information site for people with diabetes
  • Best Doctors –a tool to help patients make decisions about their care

There are plenty more exciting internet health care companies getting started, so look for a continued uptick in funding.
