Medical iPhone Apps at WWDC

8 06 2009

Today at the World-Wide Developers Conference (WWDC) (full coverage here courtesy of Gizmodo) there was brief mention of some interesting implementations for medicine-centric iPhone apps that are coming down the pipe.

Perhaps the most novel idea is to use push notification for things like critical labs.  The benefits of this are immediately apparent, let’s just hope you have good reception in the hospital…

They also made mention of remote monitoring of EKG strips, which is cool, but the ability to zoom and pan with multi-touch, but is that really necessary?

Interesting stuff, definitely head over to Gizmodo, for full coverage of the whole conference, med-tech content and more…
