"Thousands of these conversations happen every day on our websites, and Treato has built a remarkable product that brings these dialogues right to the forefront for our users."
"With a countless number of health related discussions online, it is viable to get the big picture of what patients are saying altogether," said Gideon Mantel, CEO of First Life Research, the company that developed Treato.
