Get access to your very own doc-on-demand with HealthTap

Let’s be honest, going to see your doctor is a bit of a pain in the proverbial. Getting time off from work is always a struggle and getting an appointment can be hard work also.

With HealthTap, this headache could be about to disappear.

Available for free on iOSAndroid, and the web, HealthTap lets you ask real doctors medical questions and receive quick answers in return.

HealthTap connects you with its network of doctors to ask whatever question you need answered. It currently boasts 11,500 doctors in all 50 states, covering 112 different specialties – impressive.

And for those of you in the US asking how they’re able to do this legally, don’t fret. HealthTap, with the help of lawyers, have created a new type of liability insurance that’s never existed before. It enables doctors to interact with people exclusively over HealthTap.

It gets better though. HealthTap has a rigorous recruitment process for doctors that want to participate. Doctors need to be licensed in the US, in good standing, and have no disciplinary actions against them. In these respects, HealthTap is stricter than the state licensing board.

We’re seriously impressed by the sound of this app, but like everything, the proof is in the pudding. Anything that stops you upsetting the boss because you’re having to leave work a few hours early can only be a good thing. If it does offer what the makers tell us, this could become huge.

One thing is certain though – HealthTap could well be a hypochondriac’s dream app.
