Why healthcare professionals can't afford to ignore the potential of apps

Why healthcare professionals can't afford to ignore the potential of apps | Educational Technology in Medical Education | Scoop.it
Mobile phones won't take on the role of doctors, but they will become more widely used in diagnosis and treatment, says Ashley Bolser
Linda Corrin's insight:

Some good examples of how apps can help in the care of certain patient conditions. The article makes the important point that in order for doctors to be able to recommend these applications to patients doctors need advice on the apps too. This is an important consideration for the future, despite the claim the author makes about the "digitally savvy" next generation of doctors. If we want the next generation to be "digitally savvy" about these types of innovations we need to incorporate learning about technology skills and adoption more in their medical training.
