Smarpthones usage is highlighted in a recent episode of ReachMD where Dr. Neil Busis, chief Neurology at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center was interviewed and he spoke of how smartphones help with medical care. Cellphone usage mentioned includes the humble SMS, usage of the WWW, patient databases, translation and communication apps, “prosthetic” usage (e.g. magnify an image) and monitoring apps e.g. for seizures. As for the latter, Dr. Neil refers to the Seizure Tracker website which has a mobile version of it’s site and now an iPhone app. He talks broadly about many more uses applicable to medicine and it might be an eye opener for some.
