We at infoMedMD just released our latest infoMed and this time the topic is Dieting & Weight Loss – a popular topic, especially this time of year. The Dieting & Weight Loss infoMed will ask you for your height and weight, preceded by a few questions, after which it will give you a realistic weight loss plan. The Diet & Weight Loss infoMed is written by Dr. Joe Bentivegna who previously wrote a weight loss article entitled “Weight Loss Requires Discipline, Not Gimmicks.” 

The Dieting & Weigh Loss infoMed can be embedded onto your website with the following code:

infoMedMD just launched embeddable infoMeds that websites can now offer to their visitors for free.  With a simple line of code websites can now offer their visitors any of the listed infoMeds for free.  Results are sent directly to the user via email – no registration or payment needed.

To start, either browse the medical symptoms or take the screening test which will give you the most relevant information according to your age and sex.

Your Online Health

Mass High Tech has another article about the burgeoning Health 2.0 industry and Boston/Cambridge’s central role in it.  As I previously wrote in Health 2.0 Boston has a number of leading Health 2.0 applications, including the soon to be launched infoMedMD.  

The MHT article, in cooperation with iCrossing, provides some interesting statistics on online search habits when it concerns our health.  When it comes to researching our health the internet is the most popular medium with 59% of people utilizing online resources, however primary care physicians are the most trusted source for health information.  

Of those utilizing the internet for their health information, 63% are woman, 54% are men, 66% are aged 18-34, 56% are over 55 and 54% are 35 to 54.  Of those that did use the internet for their healthcare information needs, 75% of them are searching for a specific ailment or medical symptom and 41% use the web for self diagnosis – likely many of those in the 18-34 age group.  66% of the survey’s respondents start with Google for their healthcare research, the rest go directly to portals like WebMD.

Health 2.0

Even with the proliferation of Health 2.0, 80% of medical practices still keep paper records.  Smaller medical practices cite costs as the main reason for not going digital and I imagine most startups find the task to daunting to tackle.

Instead of digitizing all the manila folders many Health 2.0 startups are opting to tackle issues like medical symptoms, patient-doctor connections and health care information instead.  Emerging a couple years behind Web 2.0, Health 2.0 is integrating the best features of Web 2.0 to help us connect with our health.  Consumers can now participate with their health care like never before.  To no surprise many of these Health 2.0 applications are based in Boston, Massachusetts.  With some of the top doctors in the country, mixing with leading technical minds, health technology fits perfectly in Boston.

Some of those Boston Health 2.0 sites include:

If you know of more Boston Health 2.0 companies please comment to this article and I’ll post more above.
