Medico.com is a global health-focused internet company. Its Medico.com online health portal and question and answer (Q&A) community is targeted initially at users in Spain, and will soon roll out to other Hispanic markets around the world, including the United States. Medico.com will target other languages and markets, such as India, later in the year.
The initial version of Medico.com contains high quality health reference information in Spanish, including over 4,000 articles about diseases and conditions, and continuously updated health news feeds. Medico.com also offers community features and a Q&A platform organized around focused health topics such as diabetes, heart disease, depression, and many more. The Q&A platform allows people to help one another with information and resources, to share their experiences of living with a medical condition, and to become well-informed, active drivers of their own health. Medico.com is free for users.
