We've talked about Doctor on Demand on the show before - and in short, it's a service that allows users to speak with doctors, via video chat, from their smart phones for $40 bucks. Well, that same service just got an infusion of $21 million dollar last week, which interested us here at Take Two in the business of online healthcare.
