Smartphones in Neurology

Posted Nov 01 2011 1:20pm

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.

Listen to the episode now, entitled Smartphones and Improving Neurologic Care (you may need to sign in but account creation is free)

Download Seizure Tracker ( iTunes link ) – free iPhone app

There are also mobile apps for ReachMD on the iPhone and Blackberry

I have added Seizure Tracker’s mobile page to the Palmdoc Chronicles’ list of Mobile Friendly Medical Websites
