HealthUnlocked is a social network for health, providing peer to peer support and a range of products to improve health outcomes and reduce costs of delivering healthcare. We connect millions of people each year, providing relevant information, products and services to better manage their health.
Healthcare systems across the world are under increasing pressure from ageing populations, with often complex and chronic healthcare needs. This requires a solution that provides tools in self management both to improve outcomes and reduce costs to health commissioners and providers.
HealthUnlocked is the third largest health website in the UK (top 20 globally), and provides a dedicated peer to peer support network. Using artificial intelligence we signpost people to useful knowledge through recommended content and services.
With over 500,000 members on the platform and 40 million site visits in the past year, we are contributing to better health outcomes and patient empowerment through wider access to information. Our platform is integrated into NHS websites, such as NHS Choices, CCGs and providers. We generate revenue by intermediating products and services such as drug trial recruitment, and providing insights into patients needs and perspectives.
HealthUnlocked was founded by Jorge Armanet (CEO) and Dr Matt Jameson Evans (Chief Medical Officer). In 15/16 we achieved income of £1.3million (up over 100% on previous year).
We have been cited as delivering a technology that could change health and care (Kings Fund) and as a start-up on track to become Britain’s next billion dollar company (Business Insider).
