Anxiety/Panic Tracker is a web-based program designed to allow users to track the signs and symptoms of anxiety and panic over time. It is hosted by medhelp.org, an online community where users can join networks, post in forums on various health topics, and add users as ‘friends’.

Users sign into (or sign up for) their MedHelp profile to create a new Anxiety/Panic Tracker. On the tracker dashboard, users select who the tracker is for (the user or someone else) and who it is visible to (user only, user’s friends, or everyone). Users can customize the tracker themes and how often they are reminded to update their tracker (never, monthly, weekly, or daily). When a tracker is created, users add data by selecting a particular day of the month. Data added can include; a rating of anxiety severity (on a scale of one to 10); symptoms (for example anger, anxiety, blood pressure increase, chest pain); treatments engaged in (for example anti-anxiety medication, CBT); and triggering events. The tracker provides a visualization of the data to track anxiety across each month.
