Stumbled across this while checking out the rest of the blog after a post on FinTech on today's Hacker News:

A well designed online service with real impact in mind - hats off to the founders and team for using their skill to better the world around them! The button leading to action related to user's needs up is up front and center; the description of the service right above the button. The service component is sourced from the crowd - with individual listeners listed with reviews and descriptions - much like other modern service models (AirBnb, etc). I wonder if larger health organizations can adopt a similar model for other areas of advice / consult for their customers/consumers (I would imagine there are already plenty companies in this space - the question is how well is the service presented and provided... and easy to use).
