Client News: Norton Healthcare Adds Android Application to its NortonMobile Family of Mobile Apps

Norton Healthcare is the first health care system in Louisville and among the first in the country to launch a mobile application (app) in the Android market. Similar to the NortonMobile iPhone and iPad apps, the NortonMobile Android app includes features to find doctors, locations and health information, and allows users to save their “favorites” on their phone.

“Some health care mobile applications provide all available data at once, and the information is refreshed only when an update to that application is made available and uploaded into the smartphone,” said Jerry Roberts, senior Web developer, Norton Healthcare. “The Norton Healthcare mobile application operates in ‘real time’ and immediately sends the data to the user as it is requested. This process ensures that every time the application is opened, the user receives the most current information.”

NortonMobile now is available for the iPad, iPhone, iTouch and Android devices. Features of the NortonMobile Android app include:
Find a doctor
Norton Healthcare has the largest network of physicians in the Louisville area. With the NortonMobile app, users can find, save and customize physician information in a “favorites” section and also use the app to request an appointment.
Find a location
By taking advantage of Google Maps technology, NortonMobile makes it easy to locate and receive step-by-step directions to any of Norton Healthcare’s nearly 100 physician practice locations in the Louisville area, as well as urgent care centers, emergency departments and other Norton Healthcare facilities.
Symptom navigator and health information
The NortonMobile app can help find answers about pain and other symptoms. The Symptom Navigator uses a diagram of the body that allows users to pinpoint the areas where symptoms are occurring. The Symptom Navigator searches a large health encyclopedia and provides a list of possible causes and treatments based on the user’s symptoms.
News, recipes, classes, special events and more
Norton Healthcare offers numerous free classes, screenings and health events ranging from cancer screenings to weight management seminars. The NortonMobile app helps users search and register for classes directly from their phone. Users also can search a large selection of healthy recipes. The NortonMobile Android app allows users to receive the latest news from Norton Healthcare, including instant updates from the Norton Healthcare Twitter account about health care trends and recalls, health tips and health-related community events.
