HealthChoicesFirst Announces Dynamic New Component Launches Video-Based Symptom, Treatment and Provider Directory

DATE: Feb 20, 2013 Vancouver : is pleased to announce the launch of a dynamic new component to their search directory that delivers both video solutions and relevant local providers. The keyword search box is synced to the video directory, bringing up healthcare providers that people can instantly contact.

“It really is a one-stop shop for people to take control of their health and well-being,” says Jackson Sayers, CEO, “It's a revolutionary complement to our well-established directory. Unlike traditional directories, the search box works off of the conditions and symptoms that correspond to the correct industry or practitioner.”

Video results come from a panel of over 200 specialists presenting in videos that are typically around one minute long. Users enter keywords into a search box on the site to instantly access hundreds of health and wellness topics including prenatal and postnatal care, prostate cancer, dermatology, obesity, and optometry.

“It’s the next evolution of the directory and smart phone” says Oliver Vincent, past CEO of Can Pages and special consultant to Health Choices First board of directors. “Health Choices First is changing how people find the right business solution by letting you start with the symptom or condition you are experiencing and then providing the local business solution beside the video content.”

For example, a user could type a keyword such as “type 1 diabetes” to bring up videos from a number of different health experts on topics like diabetes nutrition, diabetes exercise, insulin and other treatment options. Video results would be delivered alongside local diabetes health providers such as family physicians, nutritionists and endocrinologists. This would allow the person to easily access the health care they need in their city.

As Health Choices First rolls out its smart phone and I pad version it’s going to be as easy as typing your condition into a Google like search box and have both the content and local business solution instantly on your phone. is a national health and wellness directory that connects North Americans with providers such as physicians, dentists and physiotherapists based on their geographic location, and features over 1,500 solution-based videos and articles.
