If you’re an ED doc, you probably love the iphone.But now that there are over 10,000 different apps in the App Store listed under “Medical” and “Healthcare & Fitness” you may be a bit bamboozled as to which apps to try.
“We followed the same approach as last year: remove non-English apps, omit consumer apps and junk (e.g. “iWeeducation” and “Beauty Tips”), then sort by popularity. We narrowed down a list of 70 apps and sorted them them into 27 categories based on medical specialty and application type. We also identified those that are designed uniquely for the iPad.”
It’s worth having a look through the list to see what takes your fancy. Although, there are are no emergency medicine or critical care sub-categories, many of the categories are relevant to our specialties.
