About Our Medical Content

iTriage medical content is trusted for its accuracy, simplicity and usability. Our content is written and continually updated by our in-house team of clinicians, then reviewed by the faculty of Harvard Medical School. Dental content is written in collaboration with and reviewed by Columbia University College of Dental Medicine.

All of our medical content is tailored for on-the-go use in mobile devices so health is at hand, anywhere, anytime.

We listen to our consumers, our partners, the healthcare community and other health experts, and routinely update our medical content to best meet their needs.

All diseases and procedures found within iTriage are given International Classification of Diseases (ICD-9) codes, Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) codes and Evaluation and Management (E and M) codes by a Certified Professional Coder.

Along with continual review by Harvard Medical School and Columbia University College of Dental Medicine, the in-house iTriage clinical team routinely surveys published literature to ensure the medical content is current. New health topic suggestions are taken from iTriage’s broad audience of health-engaged consumers, as well as from physicians and healthcare workers using the application around the globe. Content recommendations are sent to iTriage directly via email and through the review process on the iTunes® and Android™ markets. Presently iTriage has more than 60,000 reviews with an average rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars in both market places.

The clinical team examines reviews for ideas to develop new content topics and additions for other important metadata. Weekly updates are made to the database and are immediately available on the iTriage web and mobile versions. Changes to the smartphone applications coincide with software updates, every six to eight weeks.

Drug information for more than 1,000 of the most commonly used over-the-counter and prescribed medications is licensed from the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists® (ASHSP). These monographs cover 7,500 brand names and contain information on how to use the medication, side effects, drug and food interactions, age-related and disease-related considerations, as well as details about what to do if a dosage is missed or if too much of the medication is taken.

The ASHSP data is updated monthly to include new drug approvals, safety alert information from the FDA’s MedWatch program and revised content based on FDA labeling and therapeutic guidelines. Diseases and procedure images are sourced internally at iTriage by our clinical team. We continue to update the image content on an ongoing basis. Sources for the images were purchased with licenses from Shutterstock and iStock photo companies.
