Mashable: “Being able to call or text doctors at night, on weekends and remotely, changes everything”



Joann Pan at Mashable lists “5 Ways to Instantly Connect With Doctors”:

We’ve rounded up five medical apps and websites that connect users directly to doctors. With tele-health apps, patients can call, text or privately message licensed physicians online for immediate help. Patients have an instant connection to knowledgable specialists. This industry won’t replace primary care physicians, but it will come in handy when sudden sickness strikes. Illnesses can be diagnosed and medicine can be prescribed right over the web or phone.

The benefits are immense. Internet-based healthcare makes high-quality care accessible at low cost — even to those without health insurance. Consumers can communicate with doctors on the go, at work or from the privacy of their home

Other firms profiled include American Well, Consult a Doctor, LivePerson and RingaDoc.
