Why is it that children always get sick in the middle of the night…over a holiday weekend…when your only option is a slow, crowded emergency room? We can’t solve the problem of terrible timing, but we can show you some apps that make caring for a sick child just a little bit easier. Check out some of our favorites below.

Kinsa

Available on iOS and Android | Price: Free app, but you’ll need the QuickCare thermometer ($19.99) or Smart Ear Thermometer ($39.99)

Kinsa’s smart thermometers send quick, easy, and accurate temperature readings straight to your phone. Then, the app instantly recommends age-appropriate next steps based on your child’s symptoms. Plus, it saves past temperature readings, symptoms, medicine dosages, and more—you know, all the important things you struggle to recall when the doctor asks!

ianacare

Available on iOS and Android | Price: Free

While many of these apps are great for common childhood illnesses, children with chronic or terminal illness require extra support. With the ianacare app, you can easily communicate updates to your closest friends and family, coordinate care across multiple caregivers, and request the practical support you need from people who are eager to help but don’t know how.

These apps can be helpful resources when your kids are sick, but they require a reliable internet connection to work. Check with RTC Communications today to make sure you have the high-speed internet your family needs!
