Turning the tables on healthcare

Vegas Inc., April 14, 2014
After Cathy Brooks cut her leg at her downtown Las Vegas dog training business, the Hydrant Club, she became concerned when the wound started to swell and burn. Brooks snapped a photo and emailed it to her doctor, who asked to see her as soon as possible. But she couldn't leave work, so her doctor and a staffer paid her an on-the-job visit, wrote her a prescription and outlined her care for the next 48 hours. Brooks is a member of the recently established Turntable Health, a membership-based primary care provider she found through an insurance plan she purchased on the Nevada Health Co-Op.
