Top 10 free iPad Medical Apps for healthcare providers

The quality of the medical section of the App Store for the iPad has cemented its place in medicine. Arguments can be made about getting an iPhone verse an Android device, but there is no tablet that rivals the iPad’s medical section for healthcare professionals. And because of this, the iPad has proliferated in medicine and with physicians. There are a series of studies backing up the rapid proliferation of the iPad in medicine. For those of us in medicine, we see anecdotal examples of this everyday in the hospital and clinic setting.

With this analogous proliferation of iPad medical apps, sorting through them can be an arduous undertaking, mainly because many of the iPad apps in the “medical” section are not for medical professionals and miscategorized.

The editors at iMedicalApps have gone through the free medical apps available for the iPad, and they have chosen 10 free medical apps that healthcare professionals can utilize. These apps range from simple drug reference apps to 3D virtual reality medical apps that make use of the iPads accelerometer. Unlike many other so called “top-10″ lists, this list is not based on the most downloaded apps in the medical section of the App Store.
