Medical and healthcare apps are the 3rd fastest growing app category for both iPhone and Android phones, and there are currently more than 10,000 of these apps available today. Here's a list of some of what you can expect to see your physician using around the office.
1. CliniCamWith CliniCam, a physician can take a picture of a patients condition, or injury and upload those images straight to that patients electronic medical record. Some reviews of the apps said this could tamper with privacy laws, but the pictures dont get stored and saved to the doctors phone, therefor insuring the individuals complete privacy.
2. DoximityThe Doximity app is basically a professional networking system for physicians and healthcare professionals. It includes a widespread medical directory, physician-optimized profiles, and you can send, receive and electronically sign faxes directly from the app. 3. iScrubiScrub is an interesting app that is essentially used to display records of how well a hospital staff is washing their hands. Cleanliness is extremely important, and this app helps to prevent infections of any sort. 4. ResolutionMDMany clinics already use some kind of tablet such as the iPad for tasks around the office. With the ResolutionMD app, doctors are able to view X-ray images right on their smartphones or tablets for easier viewing between the physician and patient. 5. EpocratesThe Epocrates app has been said to be the electronic version of the Physicians Desk Reference. It offers physicians primary information about certain drugs, as well as warnings about harmful combinations of medications, and proper dosages for adults or kids. 6. Leading ReachWith the Leading Reach app, physicians and office staff can deliver helpful pre-appointment information to the patient, automatically notify the referred-to doctor, and generate a record of that referral in one simple step. The app does tasks such as: email appointment reminders and driving directions, send critical educational information to a patient, and enable social media interaction. It also simplifies the entire referral process and reduces the amount of referral leaks that often happen.
