SANTA MONICA, Calif., May 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Heal, the on-demand app for doctor house calls, won awards for three categories at the 2016 Appy Awards: Best Medical App, Best Business App, and Best in Show. The Appy Awards acknowledges extraordinary applications on all platforms: mobile, social and web. Heal's awards are a testament to its notable patient-centric model and recognize the company's intuitive platform as the best in the on-demand health space.
The Appy Awards, hosted by MediaPost Communications, annually honors innovation and excellence in app design. The awards recognize the best applications across 39 categories. The Heal app was selected among hundreds of applicants to be honored in these categories.
"The recognition from the Appy Awards further validates our transformative solution to our nation's broken healthcare system, one that has failed millions of Americans and wasted billions of dollars," said Dr. Renee Dua, founder and chief medical officer, Heal. "Giving Americans quick access in a convenient manner to one of the most important aspects of their lives – high quality urgent, primary and preventative care – is what we at Heal are focused on each and everyday."
Available for free in the iTunes Store and Google Play Store, the app delivers comprehensive and unhurried doctor's appointments to a patient's home or office on-demand for $99 or an in-network co-pay for most insurance plans.
