I was just at a meeting in Atlanta with Alan (who works with Atlanta based A.D.A.M. Inc.) and saw an advanced demo of their cool new iPhone tool — Symptom Navigator ( It’s a free new mobile health content tool for iPhone & iTouch. The same tool is used at UCLA and Duke Health Systems, among others – but now it’s free, quick, and portable for consumers. You don’t have to be in a doctor’s waiting room to use it, but if you have to wait, why not use your iPhone to do some research – even better, use it beforehand to learn what you can do on your own, and to help decide if you need to see the doctor.
