What are your favorite smartphone apps, and do you use any specific to urology?

August 1, 2012

Urologists use apps on phones and tablets for the benefit of patients and their own convenience.

I would say the app I use a lot is drawMD Urology. I like it better because you can actually draw on the screen; you can sketch in organs and show the patients where their problem is located.

I really don't use my phone for work as much as I used to."

I'm also a reviewer for the Journal of Pediatric Urology, and I get my notifications about doing reviews on my phone. I tend to go to my laptop to do the reviews, but the app comes up here to tell me I have a review to do."

I primarily use my phone for phone calls, texting, and maps. I do like other apps. Our hospital is currently going to electronic medical records. Once we have that, I'm sure they will have a link that could be used by a smartphone."
