For those of you that have been following me for a while you know that we are fast approaching my travel season. I typically spend the holiday season on the road and you never know when I may be away from home for months. Typically that is no big deal but I discovered last year that not having a health plan in effect was a big no-no. I ended up having to go to the emergency room several times last year for things that honestly should have been an office visit. This year I am much more prepared because I will be using a health app. In fact the wonderful folks over at Convenient Care Now even gave me a free visit so I could get the full experience. Although you should note that Convenient Care Now is ONLY available in New Jersey!
Convenient Care Now by Hackensack University Health Network is a leading health app and I really wished it worked in my state. It is only available in New Jersey but I was about to test it as I said. It is an on-demand video consultation with a board certified physician 24/7 from anywhere. It can be used on your phone, tablet, or even your computer. The biggest thing that I loved was the price! An office visit averages about $82 for first-time patients according to the Healthcare Blue Book. I think in my area it is actually closer to $125 per visit which can really put a damper on your wallet. Convenient Care Now offers a $49 physician visit! You read that correctly!
I had a visit with Dr. Mia Finkelston (that’s her above) to discuss my blood pressure and she was wonderful. She told me that I needed to go ahead and see my doctor because she would adjust my medication. Remember since I am in Georgia she can’t do that for me but I would LOVE for her to be my doctor. She answered all of my questions, explained what was going on and what she thought I should do about it—including seeing my eye doctor just to be sure that it is only my blood pressure causing the headaches
So you can see why a health app is the MUST have tool when I am traveling this year. One of the great things is that I can have a doctor no matter where I go and I don’t have to spend forever waiting! I waited maybe two minutes total before I was on with the doctor. We had no problem seeing or hearing one another. These doctors are available 24 hours a day 7 days a week and if you have a family you know how awesome that is. Also I don’t have to worry about if I don’t feel well enough to drive or anything. There is no rescheduling and making appointment to fit my schedule. They can easily treat me for a variety of issues:
- Sinus infection
- Sore throat
- Urinary tract infection
- Sprains and strains
- Respiratory infection
