Sharecare is a health and wellness social network that connects people with experts, ranging from doctors and specialists to hospitals, healthcare companies and health-conscious consumers. The power behind the site‘s unique Q&A format is its collective wisdom, providing health-seeking consumers with answers reflecting multiple expert perspectives–greatly simplifying the search for quality information. Created by Jeff Arnold and Dr. Mehmet Oz in partnership with Harpo Productions, Sony Pictures Television and Discovery Communications, Sharecare allows people to ask, learn and act upon questions of health and wellness, creating an active community where knowledge is shared and put into practice–simply said, sharing care. Launched in 2010, Sharecare is based in Atlanta, GA.
