Company Details


Revolution Health Group is a United States-based corporation founded in July 2005 by Steve Case, who previously co-founded America Online. Revolution Health's stated mission is to change healthcare by giving people the tools, information and support to manage their health and wellness actively.

Revolution Health is a health-related portal site and social network that some have described as akin to WebMD. Users are urged to ask questions and answer other users' questions, rate their doctors, participate in online discussions and otherwise contribute content. The site also has a number of tools to help people become healthier, such as a calculator that shows how long you need to do a given activity to lose a pound of weight, and a tool for showing you how much money an individual will save if he quits smoking. Every user has a profile page where they can link up to other users, set personal goals and aggregate content they've contributed to the site.

The company portal launched on January 20, 2007. Later that year the company dismissed 60 employees, a quarter of its work-force, ostensibly as part of a restructuring, and in May 2008 RHG terminated its employer business unit and business to business unit as well as laying off an additional 50 people.

In October 2008 the company merged with Waterfront Media and became part of the Everyday Health Network.
