iMedicalApps: Top Picks for Nurses and First Responders

Every week, new medical platforms and apps are added to app stores. To save you time, we’ve sorted through them to find the most exciting new ones. Here are this week’s top picks:

The National Emergency Resource Group created Hospital Direct LT as a free resource for EMS providers transporting patients across the U.S. The app provides up-to-date information organized and searchable in a directory that enables emergency teams to access hospital-specific entry and contact information at the moment it is needed. A directory includes the main address and phone number of the facilities and locations of the ambulance, cath lab, operating rooms, and imaging areas. This information is key for first responders delivery patients to providers in situations where time represents life. The National Emergency Resource Group is continually adding new facilities.

Designed for nursing students, NurseThink Notebook encourages students to master material at a higher level, enabling critical thinking and clinical application. NurseThink methods can be applied in the classroom and the clinical setting and allows nursing students to effectively learn the large amount of material required of them. Prioritization tools can be applied to any subject matter and further explored in the context of NCLEX and QSEN standards of practice. The app is available from the respected medical developer Skyscape Medpresso for free with in-app purchases.
