    nuviun: In October, Epidemico Inc., owner of HealthMap, was acquired by Booz Allen Hamilton. First of call, congratulations. Are there any consequences?

    John Brownstein: We are an academic research group at Harvard Medical from Boston Children's Hospital, running a research group to do R&D and public health research. We spun off an entity called Epidemico Inc. that commercializes the licensing of our technology. This way we can be dealing much more with the commercial side, dealing with data sales, and it allows us to develop tools for the government. That company was bought by Booz Allen which opens great opportunities. It allows us to go to places we would have otherwise never gone to and it is good for our infrastructure in order to scale up.

      Apparently HealthMap provides website and hosting services to ProMED:

      "ProMED collaborates closely with HealthMap at Children's Hospital Boston. We also gratefully acknowledge HealthMap for providing website and hosting services to ProMED."
