'HEALTHYDAY' is a new health app that tracks the local spread of diseases in order to let you know if the people around you are getting sick. The app is designed by the McNeil Consumer Healthcare Division of McNEIL-PPC, Inc. and it helps to provide consumers with updates about the spread of illnesses in their community.

HEALTHYDAY works by filtering local health concerns and data gathered from trusted health sources such as doctors and hospitals. The app then cross-references this information with localized crowdsourced data. The result is a kind of public health map that shows you the geography of any illnesses in your community. The advanced capabilities of this app make HEALTHYDAY a useful tool for users to track the local spread of diseases and prepare for any illnesses that may be headed their way.
