Pager is an app that brings urgent care to your house within two hours, and it's currently available in New York City. It works almost like Uber, but instead of getting a car to come pick you up, a doctor will show up at your doorstep. One of the goals of telemedicine is to keep people out of waiting rooms, thus reducing wait times and patient load.
If you have a common illness, a minor injury or a dermatological issue, Pager might be easier than trying to get into the doctor's office or urgent care. The app also offers physicals, which comes in handy for kids heading to school or if you need to get checked out for employment reasons. It's currently only available for those in New York City and doctors are on call between the hours of 8 a.m. and 10 p.m.
