The Mayo Clinic is joining up with a health app called Better to give you health information tailored to you via your iPad or iPhone.
The app is free, but for $50 a month, it can give you access to a nurse 24/7 for health care assistance.
Along with real-time video chats with Mayo Clinic nurses, the new service also includes personally-tailored health information culled from Mayo Clinic databases, a “symptom checker” that incorporates individual user's health histories, and access to a personal medical concierge who can provide more information or schedule patients' doctor appointments. The app costs $49.95 a month per household and is compliant with federal health privacy regulations.
