Heal is innovative for providing care the old-fashioned way: through house calls.

Launched in 2014, Heal allows patients to call a doctor for a same-day visit in their home using an app and pay less than $100, while allowing doctors to take more time with their patients and have time left over to finish required documentation. This can be a game-changer for patients and doctors alike.
