I’ve reviewed several applications created by the Mexican government and this one is the best by far. The app is called RadarCiSalud and its primary function is to show you all of the medical facilities closest to your current location.
The application is very easy to use and has an extensive database of facilities, including over 5,000 medical consultation offices located at pharmacies. I’ve been playing with it in my area and I found quite a few resources that I didn’t even know existed.
The app also allows you to store basic medical information about yourself – although I’m not sure how helpful this particular feature is since I was unable to find a way to transmit or even email the information to a health care provider.
My favorite aspect of using the app is the virtual locator feature that makes it easier to find the facility – especially when walking.
Let’s Wrap This Up
The only possible negative that I can see is that the app is only available in Spanish. However, even if you don’t speak Spanish, I would still recommend downloading the app if you plan on visiting Mexico. You can always look up a few words here and there as needed. The important thing is that you’ll instantly be able to find the nearest medical facility when you really need it.
