On-Call: LiveHealth is an online doctor that’s always with you.

Sponsored Post QUIZ

You are most likely to need a doctor:

a) In the middle of the night
b) On the weekend
b) During a holiday
c) All of the above

If you answered C, you’re like many of us— especially moms—who so often need some medical advice after hours. And even when an issue arises during business hours, often it’s not a full-blown rush-me-to-a-doctor’s-office kind of thing, but more of a “here are my symptoms: can you tell me if I need a prescription?” kind of thing.

LiveHealth Online (and the new LiveHealth app) is a fabulous solution for those moments, because it’s like a doctor’s visit… without the doctor’s visit. For a flat rate (starting at $49, though check with your insurance provider—some are already covering LiveHealth appointments), you can have a live video chat with a real, board-certified doctor—with the specialty of your choosing—and ask any question you like. In seconds, you tap “connect” with one of the pool of available doctors, and you can describe (or show) anything you need some medical advice about. Check the map on their website to see if LiveHealth is available in your state, and if LiveHealth doctors can prescribe medication during these sessions… it varies. Of course, it’s not for emergencies, and often you’ll be encouraged to see your doctor for a physical examination. But there are so many scenarios in which this is the perfect solution: fast, easy and you get on with your day… or back to sleep.

I’m really impressed with this service because I think it bridges the gap for most people, and will encourage folks to seek medical attention for what ails them in a low-friction, low-cost kind of way. (I have never related to people who are afraid to go to the doctor, but I know you’re out there.)

Oh, and if you’re in Los Angeles next week, I’ll be on a panel with Dr. Peter Antall, a pediatrician from LiveHealth Online, and some other stellar ladies like Leana Greene from Kids in the House, actress Elisabeth Rohm (American Hustle, Law & Order), and lifestyle and parenting expert Samantha Ettus. We’ll be discussing how to survive the summer with tips on everything from limiting screen time, to treating mosquito bite rashes. Plus, the event is at Palihouse, which might be one of the coolest event spaces in Los Angeles. Have a cocktail in the courtyard and you’ll be smitten.

If you’d like to join us for the event on June 3rd, RSVP to rsvp@2momsmedia.com (check out all the information on the invite below). Hope to see you there, and that you enjoy your summer in perfect health!

  1. Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this blog. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s hard to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and visual appeal. I must say you’ve done a fantastic job with this. In addition, the blog loads super fast for me on Internet explorer. Exceptional Blog!

  2. First off I want to say terrific blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your head prior to writing. I have had a difficult time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there. I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints? Many thanks!|掲示板}

  3. I was curious if you ever thought of changing the structure of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

  4. My developer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on numerous websites for about a year and am worried about switching to another platform. I have heard fantastic things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content into it? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  5. The pricing for a hosting environment can be massively different for different
    solutions and also the level of the company. Your business strategy for
    five or even ten years should contain a program for your
    server’s growth. Your content and applications are placed on a server
    which is shared with other customers who also use
    that web host. Also known as virtual hosting, it occurs
    when you dish out a monthly fee to a third-party service provider in order to use their equipment for your web
    server. Shared web hosting is the most commonly used web hosting
    service and also called virtual hosting. Typically, shared hosting plans start at $5
    – $20 per month. Dedicated to only one, in dedicated hosting you are allowed
    to rent an entire server and use it all by yourself.
    You enter an IP or DNS name and start and stop a
    port range, and this tool will be a port scan shows all
    open ports. Dedicated servers ensure that no bandwidth, hard drive space, memory or anything
    else related to your website hosting is shared with anyone else.
    You can only work within the constrains of a shared environment.

  6. Hi would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using? I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a hard time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

  7. Different companies offer such printers, but then, you
    should make a market research before actually
    buying one for your home or office. According to Kyocera,
    ECOSYS stands for Ecology, Economy and System-printing which is a description given to printers that
    are certified for long-life usage. They have dozens
    of goods offered of various dimensions and sorts of operations.
    The good: The Cricket TXTM8 has a cute and compact design with an easy-to-use keyboard,
    a basic music player, a 1. Buying such product can preserve you much
    if you service from an esteemed on-line store.

    MAKERBOT ships off DIY—“Do It Yourself”—kits (MSRP $775) that let anyone
    put together a machine (“bot”) that will “print” 3D models into real 3D objects.
    You can use this machine in office, especially if you don.
    Computers have become a necessity in every
    office and so have Printers. This is a comprehensive and extremely professional enterprise-level solution for
    monitoring the usage of numerous printers connected
    to print servers in your business and limiting it on the basis
    of a range of criteria. Here was much trigger for celebration on a day in 2009, since the company is well known as a global chief inside its
    industry.
