The mobile human services company, GreatCall.com, released a new medical advice and registered nurse responder app, Urgent Care, available for free download in iTunes Store.

Urgent Care has two main functions: it’s a medical dictionary and encyclopedia, providing direct answers to medical questions, and it also provides instant access to a registered nurse and/or doctor, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The service however is only available in the US.

The search content of Urgent Care is based on the award-winning A.D.A.M. Medical Encyclopedia and Interactive Decision Tools that provide evidence-based health information from leading medical institutions including the National Institute Of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. That’s content is available in both English and Spanish.

Urgent Care also gives users access to a live registered nurse who can initiate responses to your specific medical questions and, if needed, connect you with a board-certified doctor who can give assessments, advice, and diagnosis of a wide range of conditions over the phone, as well as the ability to prescribe common medications. The company says the doctor will call you within 30 minutes. Each call to a nurse is $3.99, but connection to a doctor is at no additional cost.

Before you make a call, you can do an in-app search for thousands of symptoms like the flu, tension headaches, abdominal pain, cocaine withdrawal, depression, hypertension, etc.. You can also search symptoms alphabetically, and by body area using an interactive avatar, which can be changed according to gender, or adult or child.
