Health Tech

Digital health is booming with some exciting tech addressing needs in new ways. DocBookMD, a new app developed by two doctors, allows doctors to communicate with others via their phone or tablet, sending X-Rays, lab results, and comments on patients. In Singapore, Rapid Rescue is an app which helps first aid responders locate who needs assistance in their vicinity. And apps like these and other great healthcare start-ups now have a Kickstarter dedicated to funding healthcare innovation, with MedStartr. The new crowdfunding site hopes to help fledgling health companies get the start they need, addressing issues like diabetes, fitness, and patient empowerment.
