For the iPhone, the software applications mPassport London and mPassport Paris allow travelers to locate medical help in those cities (in Paris, English-speaking). The apps pull up lists of hospitals, pharmacies, paramedics, doctors (by specialty) and dentists. Users can find each on a map and make an appointment using the screen.

The provider, HTH Worldwide, provides health insurance and global medical assistance for travelers. Download the app at the iPhone store for 99 cents. For more info, call 888/243-2358 or visit or
