Orca Health Wins Launch! Session at Health 2.0 Europe

More Than 150 Companies Applied to Present at Health Conference in Berlin (November 23, 2011)

PARK CITY, UT -- (Marketwire) -- 11/23/11 -- The only American company participating in the Launch! session at Health 2.0 Europe in Berlin, Orca Health won the popular vote of conference attendees.

Matched up against two companies from the UK (How are you? and SXT Health CIC) and one each from Germany (PROTEGIA) and France (Withings), Orca Health presented its recently released iOS app for the ear, nose, and throat (ENTDecide), as well as FootDecide and EyeDecide.

"We wanted to present at Health 2.0 Europe because it would send the message that we have global aspirations -- that we are developing health care solutions for the world, not just the United States," said Matt Berry, Founder and CEO of Orca Health.

In just a little over a year, Orca Health has developed ten patient education medical apps for the iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch, and Mac, which are all now available on the App Store. Of these, six are orthopedic (SpineDecide, KneeDecide, ShoulderDecide, AgingSpine, HandDecide, FootDecide), two are cosmetic (BreastDecide, FaceDecide) and two are devoted to the senses (ENTDecide, EyeDecide).


Esther Dyson, a healthcare and technology thought leader, congratulated Orca Health on their win via Twitter, "congratulations on winning the launch contest at #health2eu." Matthew Holt, Health 2.0 co-founder, echoed Ms. Dyson's sentiments by tweeting simply, "nice job."

"Launch! is a signature session of Health 2.0 conferences. It showcases live demos of debuting technologies that our Circle of Advisors thinks will shape the future of healthcare globally. At the end of the demos, the audience votes for their favorite. This year a clear majority of attendees voted for Orca Health," said Pascal Lardier, International Director at Health 2.0.

Orca Health patient education apps are available on the App Store for iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch or at http://www.itunes.com/appstore/.
