Improve patient - doctor communication with a smartphone

Dutch insurer VGZ made this great iPhone app (Android coming soon) to improve communication between patient and doctor.
After accepting the User Agreement you can use this app to:
  • prepare your visit to the doctor by taking notes (you can use a FAQ for your specific medical problem)
  • use these notes (checklist) during the visit
  • you can even record (by doctors consent) the doctors diagnose
All notes and recorded material are for personal use only and can't be published publicly.

Other features include finding your doctor by GPS and/or rating the service by certain criteria.

I really like the FAQ-feature where you can have a look at questions that most people -with a similar medical problem- ask their doctors.
