Features/Apps for Healthcare Professionals

heroThe new iPhone 4s appears to have powerful new features useful to medical professionals, such as an improved camera and a voice recognition feature.

MobiHealth News said the new 8MP camera, in combination with the new dual-core processor and increased 1GB of RAM, will allow medical providers to more easily record the physical symptoms of patients via the HD camera and HD video. The device also has the potential to be used as a diagnostic tool because medical imaging will be possible once new apps become available that utilize the upgraded technology.

The new technology can be used to collaborate with other healthcare professionals to make a diagnosis via an app called Sermo Mobile that features iConsult, where physicians can add a photograph, x-ray or laboratory result, choose a suitable question from the list available and then immediately send it to relevant specialists in the Sermo network for feedback.

Siri, the iPhone’s new built-in voice assistant, can be used by healthcare professionals as a dictation device.  Instead of typing, tap the microphone icon on the keyboard. Then say what you want to say and iPhone listens. Tap Done, and iPhone converts your words into text.
