Orca Health’s HeartDecide app is now powered by data from Harvard Medical School, thanks to a newly-formed partnership. As AllThingsD reports, the new union has already yielded a wealth of new content for iOS devices.
The app, which is designed to help educate users and was just updated with new information thanks to Harvard, is offered free of charge. A litany of heart ailments can be simulated using the app’s 3D heart model, including rheumatic heart disease, atherosclerosis, and coronary artery disease. You can also use the app’s directory to find heart specialists and browse tips on staying healthy.
The partnership between Orca and Harvard doesn’t end there; A total of four iBooks from the pair are also now available covering various topics — angina, angioplasty, atherosclerosis, and cardiac catheterization — in greater depth. However, unlike the free app, these interactive tomes will set you back $4.99 each.
