“I participated in a campaign for Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Healthgrades. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating”
I try to stay on top of apps for my tablet. I want to make sure I have the best apps, especially the ones that can make my life a little easier. Luckily Mom Central recently introduced me to the Healthgrades app. Healthgrades is an online resource for information on physicians and hospitals. After installing the app on my iPad, I started searching for my doctors. His name came up quickly along with some other useful information. I swiped the screen and saw:
- his specialty
- what insurances he accepts
- education history
- awards and recognition
I also found listings of the different offices and hospitals he works out of it with an map.
My favorite feature of Healthgrades is the information I can add and save. Once I found all of our doctors information and saved it, I entered each member of my family’s information. All information is right at my fingertips with app. That means no more searching file folders when I need to fill out forms. I can even manage appointments and reminders so I don’t forget a thing!
Healthgrades also allows patients to leave feedback. That is a great way to learn more about a doctor or hospital. This would have been a great resource back in March when I had to have surgery. I was going to a hospital I have never been to before. I was anxious because the surgeon and doctors I was dealing with were unfamiliar to me too.
I recommend downloading the free Healthgrades app and giving it a try.
