A.D.A.M. engineered this web application version of its Symptom Navigator for optimal display on the iPhone, taking full advantage of its revolutionary Multi-Touch interface. Using the Symptom Navigator, consumers are presented with an image of the human body and they click on the affected area of the body to receive a menu of related symptoms. After selecting a symptom, the user is walked through the possible causes, home care, when to consult your doctor, and what to expect from your doctor. This data is provided by A.D.A.M. from their medically reviewed, evidence based and URAC accredited Health Encyclopedia. A.D.A.M. owns one of the largest consumer health libraries in the world.

Everyone should have Symptom Navigator as a home button on their Apple iPhone mobile phone."
