Telehealth Program Allows Users To Pay With A Tweet

Telehealth Program Allows Users To Pay With A Tweet | Deaf Education | Scoop.it

A California-based telehealth program has begun waiving the $25 fee for patients who share their experiences on Twitter or Facebook, mHealth News reports.

The service, called Pay-With-A-Tweet, was launched by Telecure, a virtual branch of Action Urgent Care in California, to raise awareness for the telehealth program.
.
The telehealth program helps connect state residents with an urgent care provider who can offer health advice and write prescriptions within 15 minutes by phone or video.


The program sees about 500 patients monthly and charges patients a fixed $25 fee per consultation.
Telecure CEO Garick Hismatullin said that the telehealth program is intended to help patients in remote locations, as well as underserved patients, access medical treatment, but not to replace a patient's primary care physician.

Through the Pay-With-A-Tweet program, Hismatullin said the company is "trying to stimulate awareness and growth right now" (

Reshelle Johnson's insight:

Virtual appointments paid for with a Tweet instead of the $25 fee.  The $25 fee alone is newsworthy.  However, I am leery of virtual appointments although I would LOVE to have this available to me.

Facebook Is Testing A News Feed That Looks More Like A Newspaper

Facebook Is Testing A News Feed That Looks More Like A Newspaper | Deaf Education | Scoop.it

The change is subtle but its message is clear: Facebook has entered the news business.

 

It’s no secret that Facebook is changing what appears in your feed dramatically. Whereas memes used to rule supreme--making basically anything shared by George Takei go viral--Facebook has reweighted its algorithms to recognize higher quality stories and showcase more news to its users. And publishers, Fast Company included, have seen meaningful gains in Facebook referrals because of it.

 

Now, Co.Design has learned that Facebook is actually taking its dedication to news a step further by building the traditional feel of newspapers into the design itself. Facebook appears to be experimenting* with a serif font for news headlines--a long-time favorite of the newspaper industry for body copy. Now that might not look like a huge shift to the average person, but it’s a jarring change to any typography nerd, given that web companies have traditionally preferred the smoother lines of sans-serif fonts (think Helvetica) to the ornamental edges found in serif fonts (think Times New Roman)....
