'HealthTap SOS' is a new app that helps governments, corporations and insurance companies connect with doctors in disaster scenarios. When a natural disaster strikes, access to medical care is limited at best. This app helps users connect with doctors in real-time in the event of a crisis that requires immediate medical care.

'HealthTap' is an existing service that provides medical consultations on-demand. However, its latest service is specifically designed for emergency scenarios. In the event of an emergency, HealthTap SOS can be used to access real-time health alerts and insights from top doctors. The app offers 24/7 consultations via video, voice or text chat with any one of its 85,000 medical professionals. The service spans 141 different specialties and it can be used by anyone from multinational corporations to government officials.

After a crisis has passed, the app can be used to provide analytics and other valuable data that can be used to avoid similar issues in the future.
