A new startup called Keas aims to help individuals take control of their health. Users complete a personal health survey and are provided with online resources to help achieve their nutrition and fitness goals. They also receive tailored wellness plans developed by medical experts at Healthwise, a nonprofit supplier of online health information, and physicians such as Alan Greene, MD, a clinical professor of pediatrics at Stanford's medical school.
Keas is one of several companies creating these tools, but its entry into the online consumer health business is notable because of its big-name partners: Google Health, Microsoft HealthVault and Quest Diagnostics.
