So, Ebscohost has an app. So does VisualDx. FirstConsult has an app, but MD Consult has a mobile web version.
I’m just trying to make sense of this, so I can sound like I know what I’m talking about as I roll this mobile stuff out to my customers. So far, not working!
But here’s a blog that might help: iMedicalApps. The site bills itself as “mobile medical app reviews and commentary by medical professionals.”
iMedicalApps features sometimes lengthy reviews, including pricing information where applicable. You can choose a device type (iPhone, Android, Blackberry) or filter by medical specialty, though the filter isn’t working on my older version of Internet Explorer.
Some of my favorite articles are those listing “top apps” for various constituencies such as “internal medicine residents” or “medical students on clinical rotation.”
iMedicalApps also presents relevant news stories, such as the “Mobile Medical News Roundup,” and reports on recent clinical studies, like “Hospital hand washing compliance improved using a mobile app.

Dr. Schwimmer at Tech Medicine reports that Epocrates is coming to iPhone, with some features that are unique to this handheld device. Epocrates on iPhone will include a pillfinder feature — a way to identify pills from their shape and color, with images to help confirm the identification. The application store for third-party iPhone software, which allows the use of Epocrates, will go live in June.
Read Dr. Schwimmer’s article and view the YouTube video demonstrating the Epocrates application: iPhone Medicine Watch: Epocrates on the iPhone.
