My thoughts on telemedicine app Dr Now

A few times while flying I have heard the call “Is there a nurse or doctor on board?” and I have answered the call. Telehealth brings new meaning to this when you can connect directly to a provider.

This event was not “code blue” emergency but it makes a point of having a doctor when you need one. When travelling sometimes we are not at our best and sometimes people with chronic conditions can forget their medicines.

Dr Now, an innovative UK-based app tackles these challenges by empowering people who travel often. With this app you can see a physician instantly through your device and get medicine delivered to your destination which makes it a brilliant step forward.

This would have implications for digital nomads, business travelers, truck drivers, and anyone with primary care needs who live on the go.
