The Department of Health and Human Services is making available 33 free health mobile apps for consumers.

The apps offer such functions as tracking health status, accessing medical information, helping teens quit smoking, educating EMS professionals and educators on field triage, aiding physicians in identifying appropriate patient-specific preventive services, explaining and showing through images the stages of pregnancy, finding an HIV/AIDS treatment professional, tracking influenza-like illness activity, accessing a directory of health hotlines across the nation, finding community health centers, and recording current and past medication histories, among other functions.

Multiple HHS agencies developed the apps, including the National Institutes of Health, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, National Library of Medicine, Health Resources and Services Administration, National Cancer Institute, National Human Genome Research Institute, and Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
