Broken now must pay costly subscription
I am a fitness coach and I was thinking about using these apps to help my clients with their nagging issues. We could have used a quick look to see if a visit to a doctor, physical therapist, or massage therapist would be useful. Or if they should get a second opinion when their pain is not addressed properly. These clients are not in enough pain to want to see a doctor, but sometimes they really should and I wanted to have a way to visually persuade them. However, the price is too steep. Plus I already bought most of these apps long ago so I am doubly disappointed that the update broke them for me without warning.
Doctor used this application to teach my mother about her surgery
My mother is of the generation that pretty well does whatever the doctor tells her. Still, she does so with a fair amount of anxiety—especially when some sort of treatment or procedure is involved.
Recently she had minor hand surgery. The orthopedic surgeon who treated her used this application to teach her about the condition and surgery and discuss post-operative treatment.
The difference was incredible. Instead of tuning the doctor out after he mentioned “surgery,” she listened intently as he narrated the videos and images and felt like she was fully informed and confident in the surgeon’s ability to return her hand to full health.
I only wish more physicians used powerful applications like this to teach their patients.
Update requires subscription!
This used to be a lovely app for patient education that didn't require $ for them to learn about their conditions. Since the upgrade, it requires a subscription after a 2 week trial. I'm sorry, but you will lose your customer base with this decision. I realize that you are now focusing on clinicians and physicians to pay for a subscription, however, we all already know this information- thats why we're practicing. It was a nice app to recommend to patients to have the right info at their fingertips. On to look for something else comparable...
