I've been thinking about ways to provide more value to our members, and had some recent discussions with other board members on this topic. The idea of ortho apps came up as something to possibly include with paid membership. This has been on my to do list, and I had some time this morning to do a little research. I found a website that 'rates' medical apps, and through some of the recommendations on this site I did some searching on the Itunes store. I even downloaded a few freebies and played around with them to see if they might be helpful. In my admittedly small sample size, I didn't really find anything that blew me out of the water (so to speak). Maybe because I like a deal and didn't buy anything, only downloaded those that were free. Also, being a typical ortho/surgery/goal oriented person, I became distracted by something else after about a half hour or so of searching. I think this may be something that we can explore for the future, but right now I need more convincing. Do any of you utilize apps in your practice and/or use for patient education? Do you have any specific recommendations to share with our community?
