The skepticism about how we can provide such a valuable service for free especially in a medical environment is justified because health care providers are used to paying premium prices for services. When a free service like MedTunnel comes along that provides such a great service for free, there is bound to be a feeling of “too good to be true.” Well, we wanted to state clearly for all the skeptics that MedTunnel is a great service for health care and it is absolutely free.Learn More

All medical practices have a website, but none have their own custom app in the app store. The vast majority of the adult US population has a smart phone and are getting more and more of their information using mobile devices, but getting a custom mobile app built and maintained is very expensive. MedTunnel has already built the hipaa-compliant infrastructure needed for building custom medical apps. We’ve decided to leverage this backbone and build custom mobile apps for medical practices that are very inexpensive and highly functional. This means that your practice can have it’s own app in both the Apple app store for iOS devices and Google play store for android devices complete with your own icon.
