Pittsburgh-based Blues plan Highmark Inc. is making member information available via a free iPhone application called Health@Hand.

The application provides medical reference content covering symptoms, illnesses and other medical conditions, as well as information on Highmark's health and wellness programs. The reference content comes from A.D.A.M. Inc., Atlanta.

The software, using GPS technology that starts where the patient is, enables consumers to find nearby participating Highmark pharmacies, retail and urgent care clinics, hospitals, and other facilities. To get the Health@Hand software, visit highmark.com, click on Choose Providers, obtain the registration code and click on the Apple iTunes link to download the application.
