[OrganizedWisdomÂ®], an expert-driven platform for health and wellness, is on a mission to close the “Online Health Gap” and elevate the standard of care by inspiring all doctors and health experts to embrace the power of digital media and share their wisdom. The company aggregates, organizes, and promotes online wisdom shared across the Web by more than 5,000 vetted health and wellness experts. With this first digital mapping of health experts, OrganizedWisdom is creating a trust filter to better help people discover and connect with credible health resources.
Thousands of health practitioners, and people with useful health wisdom, are already contributing online by blogging, participating in public forums, and sharing links. The challenge is in identifying who shared the resource, understanding who is credible, and figuring out how to connect with the health resource. In addition to premier physicians and nurses, OrganizedWisdom is also identifying and organizing those active online contributors who are patient advocates, health researchers, alternative specialists, nutritionists, therapists, and others who are publicly sharing wisdom online.
OrganizedWisdom is a free service for anyone who needs health and wellness guidance and also for experts who use the platform to organize and promote their wisdom.
OrganizedWisdom was founded in 2007 in New York City by seasoned entrepreneurs Steven Krein and Unity Stoakes. The companyâ€™s investors nclude leading health, technology, and business minds: Esther Dyson, Jerry Levin, Roger Ehrenberg, Linda Holliday, Jason Finger, Jeff Stewart, and Seventy Six Capital.
