Developed by a team of pediatricians and computer scientists, FamilyCare Software provides a database of more than 1500 questions and recommendations on the emergency and nonemergency care of children of any age, from newborn through teenage years. The program starts by asking a series of questions about the symptoms. It then offers recommendations for the illness or injury and advises which symptoms to watch to see if the child's condition worsens. The program also names over-the-counter medications and suggests tips for health maintenance. The program includes a 30-day, money-back guarantee.
