HealthyWomen, a not-for-profit health information source for women, launched the “Passport to Good Health” app for the Apple iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. The app was developed to help handle the overwhelming amount of information today's consumers face, the group says. The app provides consumers with preventive health screening schedules; personal health records and screening results; medication and dosage records; and physician contact and appointment information. The set-up includes notification reminders that will let patients know when they are due for upcoming appointments, tests, screenings and vaccinations.

"With more and more consumers going online for their health information these days, we saw an opportunity to expand and modernize our educational mission of keeping women informed and empowered in a popular forum and format," said HealthyWomen executive director Beth Battaglino Cahill, RN, in a statement.
