Thermia empowers patients and families with support tools to better manage and treat fever and sickness.

Project Overview

Thermia empowers patients and families with support tools to better manage and treat fever and sickness.

  • Fever symptom education support from Boston Children’s Hospital based on current clinical guidelines
  • At home treatment options, avoid unnecessary hospital visits for non-urgent fevers
  • Track disease and location based health trends via bank of anonymized data

Healthcare Context

With a wealth of medical information available online, it is important to use a reliable resource when triaging fever symptoms. A trustworthy educational tool can identify potential fever causes, severe illness and remedies.

In the News

Thermia was created by the research team at HealthMap, an organization housed at Boston Children’s Hospital. The website launched in January 2014 and collects anonymized data which contributes knowledge of health trends in specific areas.
