iTriage Mobile Health App
There is a mobile app for just about everything from finding a mate to finding free condoms. Healthy black men everywhere should know about this amazing application called, ‘iTriage.’ It could save your life.
It’s marketed as a decision support tool to research problems, take action, and improve care. Founded by two emergency medicine physicians, iTriage® is a free mobile app and website that helps answer the two most common medical questions: “What could be wrong?” and “Where can I go?”.
This app allows you to find out if a trip to the ER is necessary, or if an urgent care center or retail clinic might be a more appropriate, and a more cost effective alternative. You can learn what specialists are appropriate for your condition. It’s literally like having a medical dictionary, Google, and a pocket doc in one device. And it’s free!
Users can research specific diseases and conditions to learn about treatment options, procedures, costs and common complications. All medical content in iTriage is created by physicians and reviewed by Harvard Medical School. Get the iTriage app here.
The iTriage app also features My iTriage, a place to store personal health information and retrieve it on-the-go.
- Access personal health records
- Store insurance information
- Save your preferred doctors and facilities
- Manage appointments
- Save medication and dosage information and even set refill reminders
- Save information about conditions
- Save information about tests and procedures
- Save money
Now iTriage is offering a multi-symptom processor.
The Multi-symptom Processor is a dynamic symptom checker that provides decision support and enhances health literacy among all patients. Users can access the free tool online or via mobile apps to learn more about symptoms, conditions, procedures and medications that interest them. They are armed with robust, up-to-date data to inform their decisions and seek the most appropriate level of care.
