Apps can help with so many things, including driving directions, shopping, and weather forecasts. Their usefulness isn’t limited to our personal lives, though; there are various apps that can be extremely useful for people at work. Here are a few apps that have proven very helpful for people in healthcare professions.
With the Medscape app, healthcare providers can visually identify drugs, over-the-counter products, and supplements, look up medications and dosages, and find reference information on diseases and conditions. In addition, the app allows healthcare providers to access a drug interaction checker, medical calculators, procedure reference, and formulary information.
Muscle System Pro
The Muscle System Pro app gives users a very detailed look at the muscle system. It offers a variety of useful options, including watching animations, revealing layers, creating notes, and sharing screenshots. The app includes a variety of tools so users can make the app work in different ways, depending on the particular situation; it also offers an audio feature so users can listen to pronunciations.
The Epocrates app offers a variety of functions, including checking for drug interactions, communicating securely with colleagues, identifying pills, accessing treatment information, and consulting disease content. The app also provides information about coding, alternative medicine, and labs.
Taber’s Medical Dictionary

In addition, it includes extensive cross-linking between terms, which can be very helpful, especially when sharing information with patients or family members and explaining complex conditions.
The Med Mnemonics app, as the name implies, is built on the concept of using mnemonics to remember information.
