Created by epidemiologists from Harvard and Boston Children’s Hospital, Flu Near You leverages the power of the crowd to provide you as well as researchers with real-time information about influenza-like-illness in your area.
Download the app to see what’s trending where you live and - better still - have the knowledge to protect yourself and your family against disease.
Flu Near You relies on voluntary participation of individuals like you who take only a few seconds each week to share if they have been healthy or sick. We analyze thousands of individual reports and map them to generate local and national views of influenza-like illness. Flu Near You is free and confidential.

Due to the nature of the Influenza virus, there is no guarantee that you will not get the flu, regardless of what precautions you take. And as such, no warranty is made that the techniques described in this app will keep you disease free. This instructional app merely provides information on how to minimize that risk. Again, there are no guarantees. This app provides no medical advice; it is for informational purposes only.
Should you get the flu or exhibit symptoms of flu or any disease, you should immediately see a qualified medical practitioner.

Everyone is different, every body's health and fitness is also different.
Your sickness also different from others.
E.g stress can make you feel sick, eat too much water melon can make you diarrhea,
gusty wind will cause headache.
Recording your sickness every time will help your doctor to find out your problem quicker and easier.
Also it will be helpful to understand what is causing your sickness.
This Tracker won the 'Best Educational App' award for 2011 in Ireland's national Appys awards in November 2011. The app will assist the many parents living in Ireland in ensuring their new family member is protected against a range of life-threatening diseases to which infants and young children are most susceptible. The service also includes reminders for the Cervical Cancer vaccine for 12-13 year old schoolgirls.
Setting up a new child record is easy and will only take a minute or two. You can customise each record if you wish with a photo of the child and their blood group (if known) as well as recording your GP’s phone number so you can call direct from the app to set up your next appointment. The app sends timely ‘push’ reminders to your Android smartphone when vaccines are due, as well as providing lots of information on childhood diseases and the vaccines used to prevent them. A powerful exclusive feature of this app is that, in the event of a disease outbreak eg. measles or swine flu, Irishhealth.com can send an instant ‘alert’ via the app to all parents.
The app also has a ‘live’ feed of breaking child health news stories from Irishhealth.com. In addition, you can email a copy of each child’s full schedule to the address of your choice – whether this is your GP or simply to send yourself a copy for back-up purposes. The data used in this service is based on the current guidelines from the Royal College of Physicians in Ireland. It is only intended for parents of children in the Republic of Ireland, as vaccination schedules vary in other jurisdictions.

This app was developed to demonstrate two concepts.
The first is that simple, modular solutions can sometimes produce great yields (think nuclear energy). Consider also that this app can easily be altered to suit any data set, yet was published solely in the interest of Flu awareness.
The second concept is a novel one. The ever-expanding wealth of information available on the internet has yet to be parsed for correlations between media events and consumer health. Tools such as this one seek to turn medical research into an on-the-go, interactive experience that can take place anywhere, anytime, and by anyone."
Graph: Displays Flu activity levels for the given region and given date range. Place two fingers on the screen to select a date range and then double-tap to zoom in. (alternatively use the manual Date Range Button)
Country Button: Select a country from the drop-down list to graph its activity.
Region Button: Select a state / province from the drop-down list to graph its activity.
Date Range Button: Select a start date and an end date for the graph to display.
Max Range Button: Zoom out to the maximum available data for the currently selected region.
Media Buttons: Click a media icon on the bottom of the screen to open a web page displaying Flu-related media regarding the selected date range and region (if appropriate). Note that Twitter information has only been indexed from 1/1/2011 and on at the time this app was published.
Try it yourself: select a region and a date range that might correspond to a known event, narrow your date range to the time period preceding the spike, and see how quickly you can gather causative information."
