Direct access for consumers to track the spread of the flu and colds in the U.S.

IQVIA™ (NYSE: IQV) today announced the launch of the FluSTAR mobile application to help consumers understand and track flu and cold severity this winter. IQVIA’s FluStar app uses near real-time updates complied at www.FluSTAR.com, for current illness information for every ZIP code in the country, accessible from any mobile device.

“The new FluSTAR app is a perfect example of the value of human data science by enabling individuals to better manage their health with quick and easy access to flu and cough-and-cold data when they need it,” said Rob Kotchie, president real world solutions, IQVIA. “Powered by the IQVIA CORE™, unparalleled data and advanced analytics, FluSTAR puts the most up-to-date information on the spread of the flu into the hands of healthcare professionals and patients during each influenza season.”

FluSTAR data are gathered using non-identified patient information through several surveillance methods, including rapid assays, laboratory confirmation, and clinical diagnosis records. This allows a regional and national picture of influenza activity to be generated.

The FluSTAR app provides a combined index based on all relevant conditions; flu, fever, cough, and strep. The map also provides breakouts for each condition on the national and local level and is updated regularly with season progress. The FluSTAR symptom tracker also collects user feedback on the state of symptoms to further understand and track seasonal suffering’s impact.

To download FluSTAR, search “FluSTAR Flu Tracking” in the app store for your Android, Apple or Windows mobile device.
