    first off, no, i havent done enough research on this type of app to recommend one. but i do want to know, what kind of liability do the developers take when releasing something like this? my wife is a home health rn, and i can only imagine if she were to put her trust in an app developed by who knows who. do myself and yourself a favor- whichever one you decide to download, make sure you do a lot of research on it. and i would never trust a medical or pharmacy app unless it has been endorsed by a regulatory board.

    just my thoughts! hope you find what you are looking for.

    Nursing Central, I just found it. $159.99 on the market. It's got a 5 star review but no comments...guessing that they reviewed their own app. But I suppose you could get a refund.

    yea, i would agree...however, i have an ER RN friend who has the iphone, and she found an app (probably the one that poster speaks of)....she is happy with it, and has found verry little wrong with it. says she mostly only uses it for refrence in case she forgets somthing. i mean, come on...even after 6 or so years of medical school....cant be expected to remember everything..right?lol

    I am the Chief Medical Officer and co-founder of iTriage. The application was developed to help users make acute care decisions by learning more about their symptoms, the causes of those symptoms, and then help them find the appropriate medical provider in their area using geo-location or zip code search. We have every ER, urgent care clinic, retail clinic, pharmacy and physician in the database. The medical content was developed and vetted by our medical advisory board. The application is free on the iTunes and Android markets and can be used on any web-enabled smartphone, computer, or device (i.e. Kindle) at iTriage at iTriageHealth.com.

    Like the app as it makes it easy to narrow down a patient's search for a more precise solution. Very nice while traveling


    Any plans top incorporate patient's need for routine and emergency dental care in a private office setting and-or hospital setting? Being on staff at the local hospitals and surgery centers and private office, we are often called for injuries, abscesses, routine treatments that the ER docs have no solution or training four, except an antibiotic and pain meds.

    After being the safety valve for 20-plus years, I can attest to the needed by patients and those who have no solutions for patients, other than palliative treatments. Just something for thought to include for more comprehensive patient treatment modalities.

    iTriage sounds good but you can get the whole Merck manual of diagnosis and treatment or whatever it's called for $50 on skyscape.
