iPhone for doctors February 29, 2008

Posted by tomography in Innovation.

When iPhones were put out on the market, I was literally drooling at the very sight of it.  What could possible be better than having your camera+mp3 player+mobile+laptop in one single device? And now there is yet another reason to buy one: WebPax images can be viewed on an iPhone. WebPax is a DICOM compliant, scalable medical image management system developed by HeartIT. “DICOM is a standard for handling, storing, printing, and transmitting information in medical imaging.” It is basically a file format and a communications protocol. So now, you can not only access your patients’ medical records online, but you may also view their latest PET, CT, MRI and other related scans. High quality videos of medical images on an iPhone can be found on the HeartIT site.

I just put together a list of iphone/itouch apps for EMTs/Paramedics, could you share my post with your readers? If there’s a app you use often in the field that isn’t on my list, let me know in the comments (or email me) and I can add it. Did you know apps can be written off on taxes?:) Might even be able to write off a iphone too if you can show that you only use it for work (for the apps!).

Here’s the post:
