HHS Offers New Free Mobile Apps

As part of ongoing efforts to meet the goals of the federal Digital Government Strategy, the Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) is making available 33 free health mobile apps.

The apps are geared to both consumers and healthcare professionals and offer functions such as tracking health status, accessing medical information, smoking cessation, educating EMS professionals and educators on field triage, aiding physicians in identifying appropriate patient-specific preventive services, finding an HIV/AIDS treatment professional, tracking influenza-like illness activity, accessing a national directory of health hotlines, finding community health centers and recording current and past medication histories.

The National Institutes of Health, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, National Library of Medicine, Health Resources and Services Administration, National Cancer Institute, National Human Genome Research Institute and Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services developed the apps.
