As you know, my family recently relocated. Our new home is 6 hours from where we previously lived. In addition to finding a new residence, there was a long list of other things we had to find in our new area as well.
That includes doctors and dentists for the family.
Oh my– it can be incredibly overwhelming to choose those people who will care for your family’s physical well-being. Since we’re new to the area and don’t really know anyone, we don’t have friends we can ask for recommendations.
Enter Healthgrades— the leading online resource for information on physicians and hospitals.
They’ve actually developed an iOS Healthgrades app that helps to navigate this challenge easier than ever. I love that I have clear and concise information about healthcare in my area right at my fingertips. It also includes over 1 million consumer reviews, which I love. Though I may not know people in my area, I can find out what they think about doctors and dentists they’ve been to. I think that information is invaluable.
But, the Healthgrades app actually does so much more than that. This app is designed to help me make more informed decisions about my family’s health by allowing me to store key information about our healthcare providers, manage appointments and reminders and even enable us to find doctors based on insurance coverage.
Be sure to check out the new Healthgrades app and see what a difference it can make in your family’s healthcare.
