Smartphones have turned us into cyborgs. Weâ€™re rarely without those ubiquitous little devices more than an armâ€™s length away. And just like patients are downloading health tracking and fitness apps to up their mHealth game, tech-savvy doctors are adopting mobile health apps in their practices as well.
Here are a few of the most popular apps for docs:
Case is a medical journal app with a recommendation engine powered by a machine-learning algorithm. Easily read medical journal articles on your phone in whatever spare moments you can grab. Plus you can subscribe to a specialty or set of journals.
Epocrates lets doctors look up drug information and interactions, located other providers for consults and referrals.
Doximity is a social network for doctors that let you find and communicate with other doctors, send HIPAA-secure faxes through your phone, follow news and trends in your specialty, and browse jobs and compare salaries.

Figure 1 lets you view and share medical images with other physicians. Users can send, comment on, and search through medical images the appâ€™s database. If youâ€™re looking for feedback on a rare condition, or just want to learn about rare or textbook cases, this is a great addition to your mobile device. Plus the app guarantees patient privacy with automatic face blocking and removal of personal identifying information.

Workflow is improved because the Maestro can complete 50,000 scans/second. Fast capture and repeatability are major time-savers.
If your current fundus camera is getting old and your computer is slow, upgrade to an instrument that can replace the camera and add spectral domain OCT.
No worries about your old imaging files, either. Bell can convert your images to the Maestro database so you can get started immediately.

OCT is a vital diagnostic tool for most doctors, but until now, the price tag has been out of reach for some. Topcon has introduced the Maestro, a 3D OCT system that combines a high resolution color non-mydriatic retinal camera with the latest Spectral Domain OCT technology at a price that even the tightest budgets can afford.
The Maestro features a rotating touch panel and fully automated alignment, focus and capture. In addition, proprietary Pinpointâ„˘ Registration indicates the location of the OCT image within the fundus image. A 12mm x 9mm scan along with automated segmentation provides measurement and topographical maps of the optic nerve and macula with a reference database in one scan.
