We can deposit a check into the bank or pay a bill right from the smartphone in the palm of our hand. We can speak to someone overseas, and see their face right from that same smartphone. But, did you ever think it would be possible to communicate with your doctor or healthcare provider using Mobile Apps? Yes, there truly are Mobile Apps for everything. Mobile Apps are the future of telemedicine, bringing doctors, or healthcare providers, together with patients on the go.

What is telemedicine? Telemedicine eliminates distance barriers in critical and emergency healthcare situations. Telecommunication and information technologies bring together doctors, or healthcare providers, and patients. Patients have the ability to closely monitor their health and fill in the gaps that may exist, while doctors, or healthcare providers, are able to diagnose and provide healthcare advice in real-time.

The future of telemedicine certainly seems to be growing and bright, as according to the research company GlobalData, the Mobile Apps market is expected to exceed $8 billion by 2018.

Right now, Mobile Apps provide the best way to bring together doctors, or healthcare providers, and patients in real-time. TouchCare, one of the Mobile Apps founded in 2013, aims to change the way healthcare services are delivered and make a difference in people’s lives.

What is Touch Care? TouchCare is one of many Mobile Apps available for download on any iOS 6.1 system or later. It is compatible with iPhone, iPad, or iPad Touch, and it is optimized for iPhone 5. TouchCare takes your privacy seriously, as it meets with all HIPAA compliance standards. It is the Mobile App of choice for Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York City.

With TouchCare, you will have the ability to speak with your doctor, or healthcare provider, face-to-face, without having to make an appointment in their office. Get quick answers to cold and flu questions, an after-hours appointment, or a post-acute follow up, all from the convenience of your mobile device.

TouchCare aims to be among the Mobile Apps where the world comes to feel healthier and happier all by the touch of a smartphone button.
