iPhone Apps for Healthcare Workers

Here are examples of iPhone apps that can be useful for nurses and doctors:
This free app is more than just a standard calculator, boasting a wide selection of formulas and scores, support for U.S. and S.I. units, bibliographic references for formulas, and searchable equations by name or keywords. According to one review, MedCalc is primarily intended for physicians and health care professionals “who, for-example, need the formula for the Rule of Six, or Absolute Neutrophil Count.”

For doctors-on-the-go with little time, who want to earn Continuing Medical Education credits: Download this app and you’re off to listen to credit-programs and take the corresponding CME test from your iPhone, whenever you have a minute…

With the same device on which they take calls and listen to music, doctors and nurses can now connect with thousands of pieces of drug information, such as doses, adverse reactions, formularies, pricing, and images to identify pills by.
Epocrates can check interactions for up to 30 drugs at a time and includes a number of useful add-on medical tools, such as a mobile Body Mass Index calculator and a Glomerular Filtration Rate (GFR) calculator to measure stages of kidney disease.
