After launching three digital libraries, Patrick Spain tests First Stop Health

Crain’s – “When it comes to aggregating information, Patrick Spain knows his stuff. The co-founder of business database Hoover’s Inc., Mr. Spain went on to launch HighBeam Research Inc., a repository of news articles, and Newser LLC, a Chicago-based feed of news summaries. Now he is testing another information service. Called First Stop Health, his venture provides members with electronic health records, 24/7 access to physicians for advice and diagnosis and help in navigating insurance to get coverage. Members also have access to thousands of articles on disease and treatment and a database of almost 800,000 physicians and 18,000 urgent care facilities. The cost starts at $250 a year.”
