What is HealthQ?
Many people don’t have the answers they should when it comes to their health care. We end up relying on calling our doctor’s office when in reality, we should have the answers available to us at any time.
How many times have you thought or asked the following questions:
“When was my last checkup?”
“When is my child due for his/her next immunization?”
“Do I have any refills left on my medication?”
HealthQ is a reminder app developed by physicians and nurses to help you and your family keep your health care needs organized, centralized, and easy to access. Keep track of immunizations, appointments, personal medication, and more - all in one easy to use app on your phone. HealthQ gives you the most up to date prompts and reminders for current screening tools like pap tests, mammograms and blood tests all personalized to you and your family based on your gender and age.
What is Screening?
Screening is looking for a disease or cancer before a person has any symptom. Screening tests can help find these diseases at an early stage, which in the case of cancer, may make it easier to treat. Screening tests may be repeated on a regular basis.
These tests vary greatly depending on what disease or cancer you are being screened for. There are many types of screening tests, including mammograms, PAP tests, and low dose CT scans. Not all screening tests are recommended or required and because of this their frequency differs. Recommendations are changing all the time so it is always important to discuss which screening tests you should be getting with your physician.
Other Features of HealthQ include:
individual profiles for family members
current personalized screening information
immunization record keeping
push notification reminders
optional health surveys
Tailored to the individual needs of you and your family, HealthQ offers a better platform for easy, personalized, and accessible health care management. HealthQ allows you to take charge of your health and not let another appointment, immunization, or medication dose slip by you again.
Being an active participant in your healthcare is vital in improving and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. With HealthQ, you now can take a step closer in achieving that goal!
All the recommendations in this app are based on guidelines from the Canadian Task Force on Preventative Health Care, The Alberta Screening and Prevention Program, and Toward Optimized Practice.
