America on Demand: Heal
Doctors making house calls may seem like a thing of the past, but a new app called Heal is pioneering health services by offering on-demand doctors who will come to you. Started by a mother and doctor, Heal is an easy way to connect patients with fully vetted and licensed pediatricians and family practice doctors who will come to your home or office in 60 minutes or less. Have you ever tried to make an appointment with a doctor, only to be told there’s no availability for several months? Or had to sit in an urgent care waiting room for 3 hours with a sick child? Heal wants to make those things of the past by providing quick, affordable medical care from the comfort of your own home.
On this episode of Tech Smart: America on Demand, I met with Heal’s co-founder and Chief Medical Officer Dr. Renee Dua. She filled me in on how a less-than-ideal experience getting a doctor’s appointment for her sick child inspired her to develop a more effective way to get health services. Dr. Dua also explained how Heal also gives doctors the unprecedented opportunity to spend less time worrying about running a business out of an office, and more time focusing on the patients.
The doctor will see you now on this episode of Tech Smart: America on Demand!
