The Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., and Better, a Palo Alto, Calif.-based startup, have partnered on a mobile app designed to customize a patient's information-gathering experience.

 The app, which is available for the Apple iOS operating system, allows users to enter individual and family health information to start a Better membership. This information is then used to deliver free personalized health information from the Mayo Clinic based on the member's health-related interests and medical history. Built on Mayo Clinic knowledge, a "symptom checker" feature is integrated into the service so a member can quickly gain a deeper understanding of a specific issue and get suggestions on what to do to get better.
