Celebrated New Yorker artist Luci Gutiérrez illustrates the app
Awesome Studios has launched the “I Think I Have” web app that reimagines the doctor-patient relationship for the digital age. The healthcare establishment believes that doctors know best. The “I Think I Have” web app is based on the premise that doctors know medicine, but people know themselves — that they intuitively know when something is wrong with their body and often what is wrong. Rather than selecting a doctor or an appointment slot, the patient starts by selecting an illustrated icon representing what they think they have. The patient can click the icon to learn exactly what they get, what they can expect, and the cost. A medical professional guides the patient through the diagnosis and treatment process.
“We’re reimagining the doctor-patient relationship. Doctors are trained to tell you what’s wrong and what to do. We believe that there is an underserved audience seeking a more collaborative approach. The Think I Have web app assumes that people are smart and intuitive about their bodies. We believe that this approach generates more trust and better results for some people.” said David Sanders, MD, Cofounder, Awesome Studios. “That’s why our motto is: You know you. We know medicine.” The app covers 97 common medical situations. No download is necessary. The app is available at ithinkihave.com. The app is immediately available in 37 states. Customers can use their insurance or self-pay. Costs are transparent and far less than a doctor’s office. I Think I Have partnered with the celebrated Barcelona-based artist Luci Gutiérrez to illustrate the app. Ms. Gutiérrez is best known for her witty and quirky New Yorker magazine covers and weekly illustrations.
To celebrate the launch, paying customers through September 30 will receive a complimentary tee-shirt featuring Ms. Gutiérrez’s app illustrations. Last month, Awesome Studios announced the launch of WowCare — the instantly instant online doctor app. “We have developed an extensive, diverse pipeline of health startups that when viewed together point to a new future for healthcare. We look forward to steadily introducing these startups through 2021 and beyond”, said Albert DiPiero, MD, Cofounder, Awesome Studios.
