Self-Care Health provides self-care health-related decision-making tools. These are actionable tools to help you decide the best course for health-related problems that may come your way.
1. Use Self-Care Health to:
a. Rule out an emergency situation
b. Decide if urgent care visit is needed
c. Decide what to do if you think you don't need to see a doctor
d. Determine what over-the-counter (OTC) measures will make you feel better
e. Have a pharmacist suggest an over-the-counter medication interactively.
2. Parents will use Self-Care Health to get the dose of children's OTC medicines using the child's weight. You can save the name of the medication, date, time, and dosing instructions should you need it later.
Dosing features include:
a. Simple, easy to use weight-based dosing system.
b. Eliminate dosing errors.
c. Eliminate over-dosing or under-dosing.
d. Prevent inappropriate medicine use.
e. Save dose for future reference.
f. Dose given to the "ML."
g. No more dose guessing.
h. No more struggling to peel that "peel here for directions" label sticker on medicine bottles.
3. Compare over-the-counter medicines side-by-side.
a. Compare heartburn medications, pain relievers, probiotics, eye drops, cold sore medication, sleep aids and even energy drinks side-by-side.
b. Know which medicine will work faster, better or longer in a class.
c. OTC medicine labels hard to read? We have read them for you and we analyzed the pros and cons of each.
Efficient and action-oriented self-care health care is now at your fingertips. Self-care without a healthcare professional has been mostly a guessing game until now.
Triage your self-care healthcare needs. First, rule out emergency room visit. Then do you need to seek urgent care? You rule that out. And if you do, the app will tell you nearby urgent care facilities.
Do you need to make a doctor's appointment? This app will go through the possible causes of your symptoms in a stepwise fashion. Giving you suggestive information to make the best decision along the way.
Finally, not urgent? Don't need a doctor visit? Then use interactive articles written by pharmacists to get an Over-The-Counter recommendation. These materials are dynamic, customized to your need and regularly reviewed to make it relevant and actionable by you.
You can now:
a. Eliminate problems that lead to incorrect self-diagnosis.
b. Use systematic tools to triage illnesses.
c. No longer have to rely on past personal, family, friends, and co-workers experiences to make a decision.
d. No longer have to delay the real cause of a problem that can lead to more significant issues before you see a doctor.
e. Take care of that stomachache, diarrhea, fever, nausea in an efficient and cost-saving manner.
We hope you enjoy using this app as much as we loved making it. Thank you for taking the time to download and try it out. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org should you have any questions.
