“Forget Dr Google,” says @westr, who shared this article with us. “Now there’s Dr Facebook, via @HealthTap. Using a #chatbot Facebook has added a way to ask health questions in Messenger.”
Users can elect to either receive answers to similar questions in HealthTap’s online database (instantly), or an answer from one of 100,000 physicians in HealthTap’s network (usually within a few minutes, and all in under 24 hours, the company says).
And it’s free.
