Top Apps to ensure personal self-monitoring:
Do you need an app that can advise you on medication and personal care? These apps come plugged in with a lot of advice from medical professionals that can help you at your time of need. Here’s my three picks from this list :
1. MyNetDiary — Food and Exercise Diary:
It can be used to keep a log of your calorie count as well as maintain a healthy diet plan. It can be used if you want to burn some extra calories and live healthily.
This serves to remind you of your medication– how many doses you need to have, do you need the doses before lunch or after lunch? It is not just a reminder app but its very interesting as it helps you in visualizing your medication diary.
3. Cancer.net mobile:
If any of your relatives or you are suffering from cancer, this app can help you in managing your treatment and care.
4. Apps for nurses:
These apps are specifically designed for nurses all across the world to keep up with the standards of nursing and maintain their own tab of their nursing activities. Some of my picks amongst these apps would be Voalte One, Medigram, MedCalc, NurseTabs: MedSurg, NurseTabs: Fundamentals, Nursing Central.
With the different number of apps available today, you are sure to find the app of your choice. The problem is you need to know which app will work for you and which not. For health professionals though, the wide variety of apps available is a boon indeed.
