GreatCall Debuts New Urgent Care App
GreatCall, which markets Jitterbug phones, today announced a revised application that provides customers with quick access to medical professionals. The app used to be called Live Nurse, but is now called Urgent Care and offers more services that it did before. For example, it can be used to contact a certified nurse at any time to consult about potential health issues. The app also provides access to medical dictionaries and a symptom checker tool. Calling a nurse costs $3.99 each time a call is made, but the nurse can escalate the call to a doctor if needed. The doctor can provide an assessment and/or diagnosis directly over the phone. The service is available in English and Spanish. The iPhone app itself is free to download.
