House Calls in the Digital Age

Hosted by

Feeling sick? What if you could order up a doctor the same way you order a pizza or an Uber ride? No schlepping to an office or emergency room, no long lines. Instead, with just a few taps of your touchscreen, a doctor shows up at your door. That’s the concept behind a growing number of house call mobile apps. A new one rolls out in Los Angeles and Orange counties this week.
