Step-by-step instructions to interact with the aTouchAway app using the Health button to record your vital signs.

You may be instructed to enter your vital signs in the aTouchAway app by selecting the Health button on the main navigation screen on your tablet.  You may or may not have devices connected to the app.  You will find instructions for entering your results manually and for uploading your data from your connected Bluetooth device.  If you are using connected devices, these will have been set up and connected by your healthcare provider.
