Managing your health has never been easier, thanks to iTriage, the latest health-care app available on all smartphones, including iPhone and Android devices.
iTriage is a medical reference application for Smartphones, that was created by Healthagen. iTriage is currently available on the iPhone and iPod Touch, Android, and Palm app. The application lets you search and browse hundreds of symptoms, diseases, and procedures and provides useful descriptions of the conditions, treatments, and medical tests, the app also offers support links to your insurer’s advice line.
