Health care is transforming in fundamental ways. Insurance companies are increasingly focused on "disease management," recognizing that maintaining wellness is far less expensive than treating illness. Large corporate employers, recognizing that healthier employees are happier and more productive employees, are increasingly willing to fund programs toward that goal. Pharmaceutical companies look for ways to improve clinical testing in order to get their products to market more quickly, as well as ways to expose the products to groups of potential customers. Stayhealthy, Inc.'s original mission, to empower people to take more responsibility for their own health care, has shifted in response to burgeoning demand for its products and services from all of the foregoing entities.

Stayhealthy currently offers low-cost proprietary medical devices that enable its members to monitor their body composition and fitness in their own homes with the help of the Internet, and will soon introduce other medical-grade devices to monitor most major health and wellness concerns. The eventual goal of Stayhealthy and its subsidiaries and strategic partners is to offer consumers, large employers and pharmaceutical companies "end-to-end solutions" for monitoring and improving health and the efficacy of wellness programs and pharmaceutical products. The company's initial products are available for purchase now at stayhealthy.com,  and its exciting growth-by-acquisition strategy is evidenced by recent press releases posted on the site.

With most of the e-health "content providers" dead or dying, and the success of WebMD's massive rollup strategy very much in doubt, analysts and investors looking for the "gorilla" in e-health are about to discover the new, dynamic Stayhealthy, Inc.
