App Guide

HealthEngine has developed the first and only iOS app that lets users find and book a GP appointment anywhere in Australia.

It allows users to find health practitioners such as doctors, chiropractors, physiotherapists, dentists and podiatrists based on your current location or the specific area you want to find the health practitioner in. There is an extensive amount of medical areas that you can choose from within the app, such as adolescent psychology and endocrinology.

Once users have located the specific health practitioner they want, they can then view the name, address, phone number, description, location and even staff photos.

Making appointments through the app is simple, convenient and free.

Using the built-in GPS that comes with iOS devices; users can then use maps to get right to the front door of their health practitioner.

It’s an extremely easy to use app, with a neat user interface that displays all necessary information with clarity.

Since its release a few months ago, HealthEngine has had over 2500 downloads and is still maintaining a strong five-star rating on the app store.

This app is perfect for people visiting a new area, tourists, international students, and anyone else who needs to find a health practitioner.

In its description, Health Engine’s iOS app states that it ‘is dedicated to helping patients and health practitioners connect in an increasingly complex health system’.

Based on this app’s neat user interface, ease of use and extensive amount of information available, it’s achieved its goal.

    It is certainly not the only one and wasn’t the first. Appointuit beat them to it. There are others such as DocApp and AMA Find Dr. ZocDoc is in the process of setting up shop in Australia and they already have the slickest doctor appointment booking iPhone app out there.
