3.30 Today we are talking about the upcoming NHS app
We are going to talk about the app. This was inspired by a great article by our friends at Gizmodo. http://www.gizmodo.co.uk/2018/08/exclusive-heres-what-the-new-nhs-app-will-look-like-and-why-it-could-have-been-so-much-worse/
The intentions behind the app are exactly what you might expect: Make it easier for patients to access healthcare services, cut down on administrative burden, and eventually provide a means to connect with other health apps, like Fitbit and Apple’s Health app.
