Project Description


When my sister-in-law was a new mom she called me concerned about her 7-day old baby’s breathing and I almost sent them to the ER. Then she asked me if we could FaceTime… What I saw was a warm, pink, dry baby looking around, looking good. I was able to tell that she had no increased work of breathing, no retractions or nasal flaring but did have a little stuffy nose. I had been answering questions, treating minor ailments and triaging the acutely ill for several years via text, but it was in that moment that I knew the iPhone and other smartphone devices would fundamentally and forever change the way we can deliver our services.
