If you don't use your smart phone or tablet as a health tool, here are two free apps to get you started: iTriage, for checking symptoms and locating nearby care facilities, North eCare for online diagnosis and treatment, and MyChart, for accessing personal health records, making appointments and more. Each is available for use on iOS and Android mobile devices.
Founded by two emergency medicine physicians, iTriage is a free mobile app and website that helps answer the two most common medical questions: “What could be wrong?” and “Where can I go?”. Certain organizations such as North Memorial offer enhanced listings to help iTriage users choose the most appropriate level of care.

MyChart gives you access to your lab results, appointment information, current medications, immunization history, and more on your mobile device. This free app has two important requirements:
- Like North Memorial, your healthcare provider must use the popular "Epic" platform for its electronic medical record and offers access as a mobile option.
- You must have registered for a MyChart account, North Memorial Clinic patients can obtain a free, secure MyChart login by contacting their clinic.
