HealthTap, an online community that provides physicians to answer health questions submitted by patients, acquires Avvo’s medical network. Avvo is a quickly growing company specializing in delivering expert advice over the web. The legal side of Avvo’s business has grown dramatically and as a result, the organization is shifting its efforts toward that growth opportunity.

"Avvo’s legal business is booming, and with the recent launch of Avvo Ignite client conversion solution for attorneys, we’ve decided to focus 100% of our attention on expanding our consumer legal services and helping lawyers grow their business," – Mark Britton, founder and CEO of Avvo.

The acquisition now positions HealthTap as the worlds largest network of interactive doctors as it provides HealthTap with an additional 30,000 US doctors, spanning 128 specialties.
