There are a wide range of mobile apps available to clinicians, chief information officers, chief medical information officers and other healthcare professionals to support the work they do.

At a HIMSS16 session on March 1, Linda Hogan, director of the family medicine residency program at UPMC St. Margaret Hospital, will unveil her organization’s 10 top apps, then guide audience members through development of case studies that can inform their own decisions when selecting their top 10.

Hogan will walk through UPMC’s case studies that were developed around actual patients as a model for clinicians to choose the apps most relevant to their own specialties. Then, audience members will download five apps for clinical decision making and five covering drug information, so they can use the apps and see how they might modify them for their own practice, and then the audience will do one case study as a group.

Hogan also will discuss how clinicians can find appropriate apps for patients and families to use. “There are many apps available to provide quick access to important information,” she says. “I want clinicians to be empowered to use apps for themselves and their patients and families.”

Session 304, “10 Essential Point-of-Care Applications for Health Providers,” is scheduled at 2:30 in Galileo 1004.
