4 ways Video Healthcare can make your life easier
When you’re feeling ill, driving far and sitting in a crowded waiting room at the doctor’s office or urgent care is the last thing you want to do. With the average wait time to see a doctor at nearly three weeks, it could be a while before you even step foot inside that waiting room. This fact has more and more people looking for new healthcare options that offer quality treatment that is both timely and cost efficient.
Whether you have kids, a bustling professional life or both, it can be difficult to find time to see your doctor. But what if you could get the medical treatment you need from the comfort of your own home? Here’s where virtual healthcare steps in. With the advancement in technology and availability of free health care apps like Doctor On Demand, it’s easy to stay healthy no matter how busy you are.
Here are some of the major benefits of virtual healthcare:
See a doctor without leaving your couch. Whether you live far away or right next door, getting in to see your doctor is bound to be a hassle. Video healthcare applications, such as Doctor On Demand, eliminate the inconveniences of driving, finding a parking spot, and spending time in the waiting room, so you can get well even faster. And if you’re traveling or without transportation, you’ll still have around the clock access to a medical professional via video from the comfort of home.
Track your health. With health apps and fitness trackers, people are able to track their health better than ever before. You can record anything from blood pressure to nutrition intake and sleep patterns. For those with specific conditions, specialized tracking tools are available to help each person manage their health. For example, mobile trackers for diabetes help keep track of food information, lifestyle data and blood glucose levels to keep patients up to speed on their health.
Receive regular reminders. There are several services and apps that remind you to take medications, send appointment reminders and alert you when your prescription is ready. Even if your appointment is online or over video, these reminders help keep you engaged when it comes to taking care of your health. When you’re sick, there are even apps with virtual follow-up care to help you track how a treatment is working for you.
Get the help you need faster. There are some common conditions like pink eye, cold/flu, rashes, allergies, and UTIs where you already know what’s wrong. You don’t need an extensive doctor’s visit in order to determine the help you need. In these types of cases, video medicine helps you quickly get the medicine you need so you can be on your way to a clean bill of health. With Doctor On Demand, patients are able to connect via video with a board certified physician in less than 90 seconds. After a video visit with a physician licensed in your state, he or she will be able to electronically send in your prescription to a pharmacy near you.
By 2018, an estimated 7 million people will be using telemedicine and virtual health care services, like Doctor On Demand. For more Doctor On Demand info visit DoctorOnDemand.com and connect with them on Facebook and Twitter.

Signazon is a Dallas TX based business that specializes in all types of custom signs. Full color, designed by you signs are yours for a low price with quick delivery. They do mean quick. Typical turnaround time is 3-4 days, with same day rush and local pickup available. But what I think makes Signazon standout is their customer service. Having issues with the design process?

You can also contact them via phone, email, or feel free to drop by their local office. Signazon is there for you.
Great customer service, low prices, and quick delivery are three of the best things a company can offer. Signazon offers all of those alongside their amazing product lineup. I think you can find exactly the kind of signage you are looking for on their site.

It was hard deciding exactly what I wanted to order. I wanted something that I could use to promote Teachable Mommy when I was traveling to conferences or while meeting with businesses. After a lot of back of forth in my head (girls can be so indecisive sometimes!), I finally settled on the magnets. Signazon’s design template was easy to use and in no time at all I had my magnet finished. For those of us who check tracking numbers like crazy, don’t act like it is just me, Signazon actually emails you when your product has been delivered! Cool right? I thought so too.
In fact the people at Signazon are so cool, nice, and awesome that they are giving one lucky reader an amazing prize…
Signazon wants you to choose what you would like as a prize!! Almost anything you want on the site is yours!**

“Help! Does anyone know a good AC man that won’t drain my pockets?” That was me last summer, when on the hottest day of the year our AC broke. My first reaction was to curse the AC unit my second was to jump on Facebook to tell my friends and get advice.
A few weeks ago I was planning my daughter’s birthday. I posted a status asking if anyone knew where to find fully grown wheat grass. A friend responded with a link to a fan page of a local business and I made a mental note. Fast forward to when I needed the information, I could not remember what was suggested. Ever forget? It happens to me. So I had to scroll back through my timeline, which of course was so much fun, to find the answer. I went to the fan page, found their number, made a phone call and too much time later ta-da I had my wheat grass.
If you are like me, when you need to find a hairstylist, daycare, plumber, etc you post about it on Facebook. But with all the changes made to the news feed on a constant (and aggravating) basis your friends might not see your post for help. Or as in the case of the wheat grass, you get an answer then life becomes so busy you forget and then can’t find the information! Wouldn’t it be nice to have a site that with a few clicks you could find which businesses your friends use based on their Facebook likes? Vyne.me is that site.
- Ask your friends which services they would recommend.
- Introduce your friends to new services that you love.
- Review businesses in your area so others nearby can see real opinions and not just the good ones.

Instantly see your friends likes or ask your friends who they recommend. When they answer within Vyne, the information will be stored for quick retrieval when you need it. After I signed up with my Facebook login I searched for hairstylists in my area. I have one that I like but at the same time they are expensive. Now I want to find one that won’t cost me a month’s pay. A quick search on Vyne and I was able to see who my friends like. I could also send them a message to ask for details such as which stylist they use.
