Modern day women, be them younger or older, are busier than ever and that means finding shortcuts wherever they can; the Maven app lets them do exactly that when it comes to health. Although people would advise not taking any shortcuts when it comes to health, the Maven app does so in only the best ways.

Instead of spending forever in clinic waiting rooms or even on a wait list for a specialist, women can get face time with a doctor (or doula, or lactation consultant, or nutritionist) through the Maven app. Founded by Katherine Ryder, the Maven app acts as a digital clinic that connects patients and health care providers. The services provided through the app is not free, but saving time is priceless.

Granted, it's not meant to replace in-person medical exams, It simply helps with a non-urgent medical need, such as a question about birth control or a prescription refill.
