Convenient Resource for Child Healthcare
Does your child have a fever, sore throat or stomach pain? If so, what
might be wrong-and what should you do? These are medical advice questions
that all parents have. And those questions, like your child's illness,
can arise anytime - evenings, weekends or when you're traveling.
That's why East Tennessee Children's Hospital wants to make parenting
a little easier by giving you access to reliable information about your
child's health. And it's available on your mobile phone through
our downloadable app called EastTNKids.
Children's Hospital App Helps Diagnose Your Child
While this information is not intended be a substitute for professional
medical advice, the
symptom checker feature of the app helps you make smart decisions about the level of care
your child requires and how to provide quick relief at home for minor
illnesses or injuries. This easy-to-use tool allows you to match your
child's symptom by using an alphabetical index, body area map or keyword
search. Once you have a match, simply follow the action recommended.
The app also features:
- A way to search for a pediatric specialist
- One-click calling for key hospital areas such as the Emergency Department
and the Business Office for billing questions
- Our cafeteria menu
- Links to upcoming events such as our CPR trainings and car seat inspections
The Children's Hospital app, EastTNKids, is now available to download for
Apple iOS devices.
