New app helps drivers locate medical resources

When you’re feeling ill and are looking for a doctor fast, it can be hard to know where to start when you’re on an interstate hauling freight. A new iPhone app could help drivers connect to health resources, whenever and wherever they may need them.

The Exigency iPhone app provides users with location information, phone numbers and information to access health care resources including pharmacies and emergency rooms for wherever they may be traveling within the United States. It helps users find the medical resources closest to where they are, including letting them know which services are available 24/7 and what time pharmacies open and close.

The app is available for free on iTunes.
