Not sure whether or not you should visit the doctor for that tickle in your throat? Need tips to take care of a sore back or a little tendinitis? HealthTap’s mobile app and health network connects you to doctors in real time to provide health information to anyone that seeks it.
Here’s how it works:
- A doctor can build a profile and provide health information from his site
- Users can ask any question and get a response from thousands of US licensed physicians
- If you’d prefer your question to remain confidential, you can have private conversations with physicians
- The app can help you use your health care dollars wisely by providing medical advice without a doctor’s visit–or help you decide when a doctor’s visit is really necessary
Other features include:
- Free health information
- Set health goals and New Years resolutions
- Navigate through a wide range of health topics using dynamic images of the body
Of course, HealthTap isn’t intended to be used in the case of an emergency. Try it and let us know what you think!
