The idea of the old-fashioned doctor house call has gone high-tech. Now, there are smart phone apps to schedule a home doctor visit or video conference call with a medical practitioner. This week on WRVO's health and wellness show “Take Care,” hosts Linda Lowen and Lorraine Rapp speak to health and technology reporter Jennifer Jolly about what's driving this trend. Jolly writes the Wired Well column for the New York Times Well blog.

More of this interview can be heard on "Take Care," WRVO's health and wellness show Sunday at 6:30 p.m. Support for this story comes from the Health Foundation for Western and Central New York.
