Demonstrating the demand for top tier medical content and consumer response to a breakthrough user experience, Healthagen® today announced that its free consumer healthcare app iTriage® has surpassed one million downloads in the past 12 months, placing it in the top one percent of all healthcare apps in all mobile markets. iTriage enjoys an active user base and has generated millions of page views per month. Additionally, iTriage is being used in more than 80 countries worldwide.
Consistently in the top 10 healthcare apps in the Apple® iTunes® App Store and currently being promoted in the Android™ Marketplace, iTriage enables users to easily search for symptoms, learn about possible causes, and most importantly take action by finding the most appropriate treatment. Launched first on the iPhone® in March 2009 and subsequently on Android™ in the summer of 2009, iTriage is also available on any mobile or desktop browser at http://www.iTriageHealth.com.

These medical providers push expanded facility information through iTriage that integrates with the app’s comprehensive and actionable medical content.
