Cold season is upon us, based on the number of GigaOM staff members currently afflicted. A search of the Android Market for an app that offers simple medical advice turned up the free app iTriage. I’ve been putting it through its paces, and find it’s pretty good for a free app. It has good search capability — including search by voice — for diseases, symptoms and other medical terms.

The app won’t replace a trip to the doctor, but if you need simple information about what ails you, iTriage is worth the download. It includes a full dictionary of medical terms, images, and links to appropriate YouTube videos, all designed to help you find the information you need. It’s not the most comprehensive medical app in the Market, but it’s a good place to start looking for information. There are also iPhone and web versions of iTriage.

  1. James, thank you so much for downloading iTriage for your Android smartphone and then writing about our free medical app. iTriage was developed by two emergency physicians who have put a lot of thought into how users want medical information and then connected that information with the most appropriate providers around the country.

    In Houston, we have two of the HCA Gulf Coast — Houston division hospitals posting ER Wait Times on the app and then the division provides detailed information on all of the other hospitals’ specialties, etc. You can also find EliteCare stand-alone emergency rooms on the app for your specific area. All great information and great providers to have at your fingertips.

    Hope your staff members get better soon!

    Best,
