If you haven’t heard about the HealthEngine app then I’m very excited to be able to share it with you. I wish I had known about it recently….
A few weeks ago the dreaded gastro bug ripped through our house. Gastro is such a horrible thing. Once one get’s it, they usually all get it…..one, after, the other.
After Lux’s 8 hour non-stop vomiting every 30 minutes, I started to contemplate the idea of possibly needing a doctor but to be honest, because of my lack of needing doctors in the past I didn’t immediately know where to start. The time between his vomiting spells started to lengthen and the poor little man was able to keep down a bit of water. Amen.
Unfortunately some kids are more prone to getting sick than others. Lucky for us my family seem to be blessed when it comes to health but as blessed as we might be, the sense of urgency felt when needing to have a sick child tended to is something we can all empathise with.
So what do you do when you need a doctor in the year 2016? We download an app of course! And the app I downloaded is HealthEngine.
HealthEngine gives you 24/7 access to book doctors appointments day or night. You can see immediately what is available in your area, view the profile of the doctor and read their reviews. You can see if the practice bulk bills or not and best of all it saves you time on having to do the inevitable ring around when you need an appointment pronto.
It’s free to use, super easy to manage appointments and best of all, when I have a sick child I don’t have to wait until the practice is open or wait on hold just to find out my doctor can’t see me for two days. I feel safe and secure knowing I have access to information about all the available doctors near me right at my fingertips and I can make a booking seconds. Brilliant!
So download the HealthEngine app today and I’m sure you’ll be thanking me next time you need a doctors appointment. Download here.
