The free app will allow users to do the following:

  • Search symptoms and conditions

  • Get prescription refill and appointment reminders in their personal calendars
  • Access a database of every medical provider in the United States

The app is available for iPhones and Androids and can be accessed at www.iTriageHealth.com.
