Has your child been experiencing new or persistent symptoms of sickness? Are these symptoms harmless or do they indicate a more serious health problem? Parents who are empowered and equipped with patient knowledge can help their child to receive the care they need when they need it. Although it is not a replacement for a pediatrician’s expertise or diagnosis, the WebMD app for Android phones can help you recognize and seek medical attention for a variety of pediatric illnesses.
This smart phone application can provide patients with the knowledge they need, in conjunction with their physician, to make an educated decision about their and their children’s health. Features include WebMD’s Symptom Checker, a guide to different drugs and treatments, and first aid information. Just as a pediatric urgent care clinic is available when your regular pediatrician is not, the material provided is also accessible offline, giving patients a continual connection to more information about their health.
