MedHelp – An Evolving Online Community

Khaled Hassounah, Chief Technology Officer, MedHelp – User-Generated Health
MedHelp’s communities and Q&A forums have been a serious player for years on the Comscore ranking, and it is an iconic example of online community evolution. Over the years they’ve added several tracking apps, and in this demonstration Khaled’s shows us MedHelp’s next evolution – into a combination of community with Data Utility Layer. While you’ll guess correctly that Khaled is a techie with a long and varied background, you may not know that he was director of the One Laptop per Child project in the Middle East and Africa. This demo was part of a panel at the 2011 Health 2.0 conference in San Francisco.
