4 Social Tools that are Changing the Game in Healthcare


It’s 2018, and there’s no shortage of tech products to help better our day to day lives. From scheduling apps, reminders and lifestyle based solutions. But what about those making a difference in healthcare? Software that is helping bridge the gap between consumer and doctor, Nurse and Hospital. Here we take a look at 5 tech products that are helping change the game in our line of work.

  1. True
    True is a social validation tool, and is helping bridge the gap between consumers and all areas of health, from vets to doctor locations. Signing up with a new doctor, dentist or veterinarian for your pooch can be daunting. You want to rely on reviews, but even one small negative can disable you from making a decision. True helps you decide which option is for you by showing true social validation, in other words – it shows you how many people trusted to use that business in any given time frame.Screen Shot 2018-05-21 at 9.26.49 AM

    The purpose of the tool is to show how many other people are making an active decision on a website, business or store. Would it make you feel more at ease if you saw how many people booked with a dentist, vet or doctor? True thinks so, and has helped businesses in the health industry increase their bookings by up to 140%.You can read more or sign up at –

  3. DynaMedFake news? We think not. DynaMed puts clinicians at ease with evidence based documentation that helps medical professionals at the point of care. Dynamed claims on it’s site that independent studies have ranked DynaMed higher than other clinical reference services in its category. These studies directly compared several well-known, point-of-care reference resources. Study findings have showed that DynaMed is the most current evidence-based point-of-care reference database.
  4. Doctors on DemandIt was only a matter of time before Doctors went virtual, and Doctors on Demand shows no signs of slowing down. Need a doctor?
