It is now easier for Mom to care for her health and wellness, and that of her family’s thanks to LiveHealth Online’s new telehealth app that lets moms talk face-to-face with a physician from anywhere, anytime. It is the only telehealth app that lets mom choose her doctor, and for many, is integrated as part of their benefit with Anthem Blue Cross, a major insurance provider in California.
The LiveHeatlh Online app offers a safe, fast and easy way for moms to talk securely and privately by two-way video chat with a U.S-based, board certified primary care doctor to get a diagnosis and treatment for themselves and their families for urgent care conditions, like the flu, colds, or strep throat. If needed, the LiveHealth Online doctor can send in prescriptions directly to their local pharmacy.
“Yes, even moms can feel under the weather sometimes even if they don’t admit it,” said Jacqui Boland, founder and chief executive officer of Red Tricycle, a leading online parenting site. “With the LiveHealth Online app, moms now have a great tool that gives them quick and easy access to health care so they can feel better, faster. When mom is healthy she is better equipped to take care of her family.”
Registering for LiveHealth Online is fast and easy--just download the app from iTunes or the App Store or Google Play store and sign-up in one quick step. Or, you can visit www.livehealthonline.com and register. Red Tricycle’s Jacqui Boland suggests moms download the app when she and her family are healthy so that when someone does get sick, mom can help get everyone on the road to recovery as fast as possible.
“With a click on the LiveHealth Online app, moms can have a wonderful health care experience where they can use their mobile device to talk face-to-face with the doctor of their choosing, and gain a care provider if their primary doctor is unavailable,” said Dr. Mia Finkelston, a board certified family physician and participating LiveHealth Online doctor. “As a working mom, I love that LiveHealth Online brings high-quality health care directly to me so I can access the care I need when I need it, and be more available for my family.”
LiveHealth Online is a cost-effective alternative to urgent care or retail clinics and costs $49.
For PPO and EPO members of Anthem Blue Cross, a LiveHealth Online visit is covered at the same or lower out-of-pocket cost than a typical office visit, and claims reimbursement is automatically filed for a fast and easy experience.
LiveHealth Online is a great tool to help in case mom or a loved one is sick. Dr. Finkelston also believes that moms must make their own health and wellness a greater priority, and suggests these tips to do so:
- Check in with your partner regularly to make sure you are both on the same page when it comes to household chores, approach to discipline with your kids, schedules, etc...
- Remember that children are sponges...pause and think before you react with actions or words.
- Make wellness of obvious importance in your daily routine, such as taking a walk, a fitness class or meditating.
- Find a neighbor, preferably a middle schooler, to be a mother's helper to free up some of mom’s workload at home. She can play with the kids or help with laundry.
- Remember to do something nice for yourself every day!

With so much going on in this space you could be forgiven for thinking you were always working with yesterday’s technologies. So much change, so quickly. What do you do if you have to build a solution from the ground up that is expected to live in the field for at least 5-10 years? This is the challenge we faced when we looked to refresh our existing 10-year-old custom hardware stack to measure the fullness of trash cans and compactors.
