LOOKING TO OPTIMIZE YOUR HEALTH HABITS? THERE’S AN APP FOR THAT.
Contacting your care provider just got easier thanks to Medici (@medici.md). The mobile app connects patients with doctors, veterinarians and other healthcare practitioners on one easy-to-use interface. Skip the waiting room and text, call or video chat with your doctor straight from your mobile device. The app even stores your information, making it easy to ask follow-up questions, receive lab results and request prescription refills.
If you’re having trouble sticking to your health and fitness goals, it might be time to up the stakes. StickK (@stickk), a mobile habit tracker created by behavioral economists at Yale University, invites users to put their money on the line, leveraging the power of incentives and accountability to help participants turn their goals into reality.
There’s a reason everyone is talking about Talkspace (@talkspace). The app is on a mission to make therapy more mainstream by matching users with licensed therapists. Talkspace’s flexible care plans make it both convenient and affordable to get the help you need when you need it.
Tired of tossing and turning throughout the night? It might be time to get serious about your sleep habits. Pillow’s (@pillow_app) free app turns your iPhone into a sleep tracker that senses your midnight movements and translates them into an easy-to-read chart that will help you calculate your sleep quality. The app pairs perfectly with Apple’s Health app to sync your sleep data with other daily habits—like water intake and calories consumed—so you can get a handle on what’s keeping you up at night.
