Healthagen’s iTriage Consumer Healthcare App Now Available on Android Tablets

New iTriage version optimized for Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) extends mobile device reach

 
PRLog - May 9, 2011 - In anticipation of the Google I/O Development Conference, Healthagen® today announced the release of its first tablet application developed for the Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) mobile operating system. iTriage®, the leading Symptom-to-Provider™ consumer mobile healthcare application, is now available on Android 3.0 tablets (initially the Motorola Xoom™), offering consumers more choices for accessing healthcare information on their mobile devices.

A recent Nielson Company study showed that 31% of U.S. mobile consumers plan to buy an Android-based device in the next year. The availability of this latest iTriage tablet version optimized for Android 3.0 reinforces Healthagen’s mission to empower consumers to make better healthcare decisions by making the iTriage application available across additional Android mobile platforms.

This latest iTriage tablet version takes advantage of the Android 3.0 mobile OS and offers these new consumer benefits:

•   Through the new Android 3.0 feature called "Fragments," the ability to see multiple items and views at the same time instead of one at a time (compared to the Android phone version)

•   Through the new Android 3.0 Action Bar, easier navigation

•   Through the larger tablet screen, more engaging and usable iTriage features, such as maps of healthcare providers near you and clinical videos

“iTriage optimized for Android 3.0 expands Healthagen’s reach into the growing Android market,” said Peter Hudson, M.D. CEO of Healthagen. “As the tablet market continues to grow, this extension adds enormous value to consumers who use iTriage for their medical needs.”

As a leader in mobile healthcare technology, iTriage uses a unique symptom-to- provider pathway ™ that allows consumers to make better healthcare decisions by helping them answer the questions, “What medical condition do I have?” and “Where should I go for treatment?” In addition to Android tablets, iTriage is available as a free download for Android phones and iPhones, and on any mobile or desktop browser at http://www.iTriageHealth.com.
