News Report

What should you do if your child develops a fever, cough, vomiting, rash, sore throat or head injury? What should you do about behavioral issues, from toilet training to teaching responsibility to teenagers? All Children's Hospital is making it easier for parents to find the answers to these questions in a fast, simple and reliable way.

Pocket Doc is the new All Children's Hospital app. It’s free and available for your iPhone, Android and via your web browser. Pocket Doc will make life easier for parents by giving them better access to the pediatric information used by professionals around the country.

Pocket Doc is provides pediatric care guides derived from the telephone protocols used by more than 400 hospital-and health plan-based nurse advice lines and by 90 percent of pediatric practices. They have been tested on more than 150 million symptom calls.

A Symptom Care Guide will help parents make smart decisions on what level of care (if any) is needed and how to provide speedy symptom relief for minor illnesses or injuries that parents can manage on their own.
