8 Medical iPhone Apps You Should Prescribe to Your Health Care Professional

iphonemonitor  8 Medical iPhone Apps You Should Prescribe to Your Health Care Professional

It’s a safe bet that one of your doctors has an iPhone. But what you may not realize is that he or she is using it as part of your overall treatment. From reading APGAR scores to x-rays, there is a fascinating array of health-care tech available in app form. Some are created by savvy developers, while others are built out of necessity by the doctors. Currently, the FDA has no over-arching regulation in place for mobile medical apps, despite the fact that they have indicated in the past that under certain circumstances the iPhone may be considered a medical device and therefore regulated as one, according to a report by Brian Dolan on Mobihealthnews.

“Many medical imaging software applications are considered medical devices and, as such, are regulated by the FDA,” says Justin Dearborn, CEO of Merge Healthcare. “FDA regulations mandate that rigorous processes must be followed during software development, productization, and maintenance.” Dedicated resources, domain knowledge and familiarity with standards allow companies such as Merge to speed up the submission process, but approval varies by product and the process to get an app to market, as outlined on the FDA’s Web site, is a rigorous one.

Monstrous iPhone Battery with up to 500 hours standby

monstrous iphone battery

Sure, the iPhone is great. There’s an app for everything and for everything, there’s an app. But when you’re working 10 hour days and your iPhone tuckers out before your commute home, you have a problem. When you’re stuck in the car for a long drive with people you don’t wanna talk to and your iPhone dies mid-trip, you have a problem. When your entire life is in your cell phone and it dies and there isn’t a plug in sight, you have a MAJOR PROBLEM. Of course, if you traveled back in time and tried to explain this to the 1990 incarnation of yourself, you’d probably get laughed at most righteously. A heart attack, over a dead cellular phone? Really? Gnarly, dude.

But we have the solution. It’s bigger, it’s badder, and it’ll make sure your iPhone lasts all day long. And night. And possibly into the next day. The Monstrous iPhone Battery is a lithium powered rechargeable battery extender with a whopping 3000mAh capacity. For the layman, that means 8.5 hours of talk time or 8.5 hours of online time or about 40 hours (!!) of audio playback. No more shutting down applications, disabling features so you can be sure to eke by with that last ounce of battery life. Salvation is here, and it is awesome.

Estimated use time:

  • Standby time: Up to 500 hours
  • Talk time: Up to 8.5 hours
  • Internet use: Up to 8.5 hours

Open your Mercedes with your iphone mbrace app

hughesmercedesdoorlock  Open your Mercedes with your iphone mbrace app

hughes mercedes door lock

Hughes Telematics recently announced its partnership with Mercedes-Benz on the automaker’s new line of “mbrace” mobile telematics solutions. The system, which connects mbrace-equipped vehicles with an app installed on the user’s Apple iPhone or RIM Blackberry, allows people to lock and unlock their doors, contact roadside assistance, get in touch with a local dealer or find their vehicle in a crowded parking lot. It’s a relatively trick technology that we spent some time with at the LA Auto Show, and there’s plenty of potential on the horizon.
Although the functionality is pretty basic so far, it’s seamlessly integrated with the vehicle and covers the most essential elements of telematics setup.

The user logs in and enters a pin (required every time you use the app for security and safety reasons) and then can choose between three tabs:

  • Vehicle: Lock and unlock doors, vehicle location and assistance
  • Dealer: Contact a local dealer or find one nearby
  • Account: Manage your account with M-B, make payments, etc.

The interface on the iPhone is decidedly more sexy than the Blackberry – no surprise considering the age of RIM’s OS – but both systems work as advertised and the potential for expansion is easy to envision.

Hughes representatives hinted at the possibility of diagnostic, maintenance reminders and a summary of daily driving information (mpg, fuel efficiency, miles traveled, etc.), along with integration with the vehicle’s navigation system to find preferred routes to and from a location based on traffic conditions. Nothing revolutionary, but that’s not what it’s about – it’s about integration. The rest will flow as the systems get more complex and assimilated into the vehicle’s internal systems. Naturally, there’s plenty of talk about lifestyle applications, covering music, messaging, note-taking and other seemingly simple programs currently available on most smartphones.
