HOUSTON, April 16, 2015 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- "We are very excited to announce our investment as we have been working with I'm Sick Mobile since December. I'm Sick Mobile removes the need to go to the doctor's office or urgent care centers by bringing a Nurse Practitioner (NP) to your doorstep. Since an NP can prescribe medications through an agreement with a collaborating physician, I'm Sick provides a cost effective, at home solution when you are not feeling well," says David Franklin, Managing Director of Houston Health Ventures (HHV).
The application uses an individual's location to match a nearby NP to come for a house or office call. I'm Sick processes all billing through a debit or credit card with the application and does not rely or provide information to insurance companies. The service charge for a visit is $75 and includes the visit from an NP, I'm Sick Mobile's coordination of medical information delivery between the NP and supervising physician, and a follow up to ensure you're feeling better.
I'm Sick Mobile is launching its alpha version this weekend in select areas of Austin and will soon be in Houston, Dallas, and San Antonio. The application and its user interface will be upgraded with the launch of version 2 scheduled for early June. One service, currently available today upon request, will be highlighted in version 2 with the addition of an "I'm Hungover" button. Clicking the button will dispatch a caregiver to your location to evaluate your condition and start and monitor an IV drip to re-hydrate and help alleviate a nasty hangover.
