Medivizor: Personalized Health Research

December 2, 2015

One of the biggest challenges in fighting a chronic or serious illness is wading through and understanding the thousands (or millions) of articles, posts, and research studies that can be found online. Medivizor has a solution for that problem by providing personalized health research curation based on a detailed questionnaire completed by a subscriber. On Get Social Health, I have a conversation with Medivizor CEO Tal Givoly about providing patients with research that is vetted for accuracy and relevancy. Catch our conversation or drop in at time stamps below.
