Every Pharmacist Should Have These Apps on Their Phone ::

It’s nice to have the information you need at your fingertips, available with the touch of a screen. With the many different healthcare apps now on the market, pharmacists can have instant access to just about anything they need to know.

Here are a few of the best such apps.

Skyscape

This company manufactures several hundred different apps in the medical field, including many that cover clinical and drug references. The apps cover just about every different medical topic, such information as poisoning and drug overdose, psychopharmacology, herb, and dietary supplements, oncology drug reference, cancer drugs, drug calculations, as well as a range of dictionaries, exam resources, and coding references.

The apps come in a broad range of prices. Some you can download at no cost. Others have a price tag of more than $100, but most apps are within these two price endpoints.

Vaccines

This app has information on vaccine schedules and when adults, children, and adolescents should receive immunizations. It is based on CDC recommendations and is updated whenever the CDC changes its information.

It also gives information on helping children to get caught up with their vaccinations if they have missed some of them, and it includes recommendations for vaccinations of adults with particular medical conditions.

Epocrates

This app is primarily intended for healthcare providers but is also helpful for pharmacists because of its information on various medications.

MedCalc

This app can give you medical formulas, scales, scores, and classifications. The creators have designed the display to fit the small screen of an iPhone. This makes all the information visible with only a small amount of scrolling. The app is free.
