Every week, new medical platforms and apps are added to app stores. To save you time, we’ve sorted through them to find the most exciting new medical apps. Here are this week’s top picks:
Harrison’s Manual + Rx DDx Tx is an app bundle offering over $100 in savings with in-app purchase of the collection. Users gain offline access to Harrison’s Manual of Medicine, DrDrugs: Drug Guide for Physicians, MobileDDx, Skyscape Labs, and the Skyscape Clinical Calculator PLUS. These resources are designed for residents, particularly those in internal medicine. The app also offers patented SmartSearch technology, which the developers state is more accurate than any other online search engine.
Individuals seeking certification as a PN, or practical nurse, can benefit from the three study modes in the NCLEX-PN Visual Prep app. The application contains virtual exam, training, and student modes. In the virtual exam mode, users can customize the number of questions and are not shown scores until the end of the exam. Training and student modes give more immediate feedback. The developers enabled question bookmarking and offer test-taking strategies and free lifetime updates. And recently updated, the NCLEX-RN Visual Prep app offers a collection of practice questions for nursing school graduates preparing to take the NCLEX exam for RN certification. Visual Prep offers the questions in three different modes: visual, training, and student. The visual mode is a customizable virtual exam mode that reveals scores at the end. Instant rationales are available after answering questions in training and student modes. Questions can be saved, bookmarked, and test logs are saved as well.
The Academy for Science and Continuing Education (ASCEND) Programme was developed by an expert International Steering Committee headed by Harvard Medical School’s Professor Martin Abrahamson. The app is for medical practitioners and aims to improve global diabetic care through a comprehensive CME-accredited curriculum. The courses contain practical and interactive content. The app, best viewed on the iPad, also provides a platform for full members to share experiences and practical advice.
