Avvo Sells Off Health Business

Seattle-based Avvo is getting out of the health business and re-focusing on lawyers, after selling off its health directory business. Avvo and online health directory firm HealthTap said this morning that HealthTap has acquired the health business of Avvo, including its directory and network of medical professionals. Financial terms of the buy were not disclosed. Avvo said it will now focus back on its legal business and attorney marketing platform. Avvo had expanded into the healthcare area back in 2010.
