HHS has released 33 consumer-facing apps designed to foster consumers’ engagement with their healthcare, a key part of the department’s digital strategy.

The apps have a variety of different functionalities, from calculating a user’s body mass index to finding the nearest federally funded health center to helping a user quit smoking.

“The Digital Strategy requires us to make digital content available where, when and how citizens want it,” according to the HHS release. The newly released apps are available across platforms, including iOS, Android and Windows.
