LOS ANGELES – The University of Southern California Center for Body Computing is working on a mobile app intended to give users additional resources to learn about their health. As part of the center’s Virtual Care Clinic, the DocOn app will feature avatars of all 1,500 experts and researchers from the Keck School of Medicine at USC, who will provide information on recent studies, and medication or treatments gathered from reputable medical research. “We think that technology has advanced to the point it’s going to disrupt something as complicated as health care,” said Dr. Leslie Saxon, founder of the center, in a statement. The first version of the app will focus on atrial fibrillation. “With an app like this, it allows you to talk to a doctor in the comfort of your own home,” said Ketetha Olengue, who programmed the app, in a statement.
