A new mHealth app called Wellzilla is now available to both professional and family caregivers. The app is designed as both a communication tool, as well as a platform through which caregivers can purchase all of the over-the-counter medical supplies they require.
When speaking of medical supplies required for hygiene and other Activities of Daily Living, supplies are more affordable in Wellzilla because the app cuts out the middle man. The app currently has over 40,000 medical supplies, some of which are as much as 80% cheaper than paying the full retail price.
Aside from purchasing required medical supplies, the app allows caregivers to manage their patients through the app. They can create a patient profile to be shared with other family members or caregivers, and they can use the app to send pertinent notifications to a designated group of individuals.
Wellzilla Founder and CEO David Gelbard created the app in honor of his parents who were both medical professionals.
