Description

Australia’s free health app helps you make informed decisions about your health.

You can use the healthdirect app to:
• check your symptoms and get advice on next steps with the healthdirect Symptom Checker
• find a health service when and where you need it
• look up information on a range of medicines
• search for and find trusted health information

The tools you need to manage your own health

The healthdirect app includes a Symptom Checker tool which guides you through a series of questions to help you make an informed decision about what to do next, whether it is self-care or seeing a health professional.

Australian health services, at your fingertips

The healthdirect app includes an Australia-wide directory covering a range of health services. Easily find the health service you need, when you need it, and get contact details and directions from your current location. The services directory also includes My Health Record enabled services.

Trusted, Australian information

All information in the healthdirect app is sourced from Australia’s leading health organisations and has undergone a quality assurance process so people can know it is safe, appropriate and relevant for Australians. It complies with Healthdirect Australia’s Clinical Governance Framework and is backed by the governments of Australia.

A helping hand in emergencies

The healthdirect app can be used in emergency situations. It will display latitude and longitude coordinates which you can relay to emergency service operators when you don’t know exactly where you are.

Health Check - very helpful

N1nny

After being ill for the past 4 days & knowing my GP is away for another 2 days, I wanted confirmation as to whether I should go to the ED or wait. Advice was quick, detailed, accurate & helpful. Only negative is the App states FREE but ITunes charged me $1:00. ??

Excellent app

I wish every Australian used this app. So many trips to the emergency department are not warranted. Don’t go if you have a minor issue that would be better addressed by you GP.

Useful, trustworthy

Refreshing to have reliable and local health information. Helped me understand more about my symptoms.
