What pizza apps tell us about healthcare consumerism

Fact: in the early days of the web, Google was born and it was almost a service for ordering pizzas via fax. 

Fact: a recent study showed that the number one thing people want an app for is….wait for it… ordering pizza. 

Fun link: Push For Pizza … this is a real thing.

What does this tell us about the world (besides our love for pizza)? When we know what we want (pizza), we want to literally push a button and have all the rest —ordering, payment, delivery —taken care of for us. Uber did it for cabs. Netflix does it for movies.

Maybe it’s time for Push for Doctor?*


*Yes, I know there are lots of home health and house call apps. But are any of them as dead simple as Push For Pizza?
