This is a truly invaluable iPhone and iPad app that enables you and your family to easily search for and keep track of all information pertaining to your doctors, medical appointments, health insurance details, and much, much more.
This certainly isn’t the first app that I’ve come across that is designed to help people manage their medical information, but based on what I’ve seen so far, it definitely appears to be one of the better examples.
There are a ton of handy features in here, and the developer has clearly gone to the effort of making sure that the interface as a whole is straightforward and easy to use for people from all walks of life.
One of the first things you’ll see upon first starting up Healthgrades: The Right Doctors and Hospitals, Right at Your Fingertips is the main Dashboard which you can use to immediately begin adding information to the My Doctors section.
The Find a Doctor feature utilizes your device’s integrated GPS to make it a little easier to find doctors within your local area, or alternatively you can search on the basis of Popular Specialties, such as Internal Medicine, Obstetrics & Gynecology, and Pediatrics.
Another useful feature in this section enables you to Ask Friends for Recommendations via Facebook, Twitter, email, and text message.
Create a Medical Family Profile
I also really like the way you can create a full medical profile for your family by adding individual family members and including information such as their name, gender, date of birth, and insurance carriers.
Additionally, you can use your device’s GPS to search for nearby Hospitals, with much of the same criteria available for searching.
If you attend frequent medical appointments then the My Reminders section is going to prove incredibly useful as it synchronizes with your iPhone Calendar to provide you with notifications with information such as the doctor you need to see, the location, and much more.

There is nothing negative to say about this app
Healthgrades: The Right Doctors and Hospitals, Right at Your Fingertips is a very slickly designed and smooth running iPhone and iPad app that I think is going to be of great benefit to a lot of you, especially if you and your family frequently attend medical appointments.
I’m pretty fortunate in that I don’t really have much use for an app of this kind, but if you do require a tool for storing your medical information and keeping on top of your appointments then I really don’t think you can go too far astray with Healthgrades.
