WebMD Patient

Sep 1, 2012

iOS and Android


WebMD is a leading provider of health information for both patients and healthcare professionals. 

The key features include the Symptom Checker in which patients can select a part of the body through a list or by clicking on a virtual human model. Drug & Treatments allows users to help better understand drug therapy by providing information such as their indication and possible side effects. There is also the First Aid feature that provides a guide to treating medical emergencies and other helpful treatment tips. The Local Health Listings function are great because this can help patients easily find doctors, pharmacies, and hospitals in their area or nearby locations. 

Overall Impressions from Around the Web:

Coming from one of the leading lay reference websites, it is no surprise that the WebMD apps are popular both for iOS and Android users, and seem to be fairly well liked. Crashes with some systems have occurred but have been addressed fairly quickly. Educating patients is one of our biggest challenges and this well-built app can only help.
