In addition to the popular medical apps listed previously, here are a few more to consider:
- MedPage Today. This app connects you to the top breaking medical news stories that the public is reading. While these news reports are not necessarily written by medical professionals, they do give you an idea of what your patients are reading and may ask you about. For iOS, Android, and web view. Free.
- Unbound Medline. This excellent app connects you to over 20 million journal articles. You can also instantly email articles of interest to your colleagues. For iOS and Android mobile devices. Free.
- Wasting time trying to find the right usernames, passwords, and PINs among an ever growing list? One way is to have a single app to access all your passwords and PINs. Some key ones are reviewed here. A very simple (and free) password protection, though, is to simply list your usernames, passwords, and other codes alphabetically in a Word document that has a single password to access the file. Security is easy to set up in Word’s Preferences, under Security.
