Bupa has launched a free iPhone app giving people easy access to quality health information wherever they are. The health finder app gives free mobile access to health fact sheets.
As well as providing information about medical conditions, the latest app lets people search for specialists, hospitals, and Bupa centres in their area so they can discuss with their GP, which one might be best for them, should they require treatment.
For users with Bupa health insurance, the app also provides a step-by-step guide to the claims process, stores membership details and stores the pre-authorisation codes for appointments as well as automatically updating their iPhone calendar with the date and time. Compatible with Google maps, the app provides users with directions to their chosen facility.
The app is available to all iPhone/iPad and iPod touch users and can be downloaded at the Apple app store.
