Healthspek to present at AARP expo

Developers of the Nashville-based personal health management app Healthspek have been invited to pitch their product at AARP's national expo in May.

The expo, to be held in Boston, will showcase 10 startups in the "50 and over" health technology market, with access to consumers, venture capitalists and other investors. Healthspek is a free iPad tool that safely tracks, collects and disseminates personal health care information.

"Today's health care environment is putting the power back in the hands of the people, and we see that as very positive," Randy Farr, Healthspek CEO, said in a release. "Consumers now have an opportunity to manage their own care, working with their doctors to streamline the flow of information. The benefits in cost reduction, efficiency, disease prevention and peace of mind are significant, and we believe we're just scratching the surface of how this technology could revolutionize American health care."
