The Clinical Advisor launches new free app
The Clinical Advisor
, Haymarket’s monthly magazine for primary-care nurse practitioners and physician assistants in the US, has launched a free interactive mobile app.
Haymarket’s US division teamed up with US Biomedical Information Systems (USBMIS) to develop the new app, which is available for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch and can be downloaded from the App Store
Designed for nurse practitioners (NP) and physician assistants (PA), the app combines The Clinical Advisor’s expertise with the interactivity of smart phones and tablets to help health-care professionals stay up-to-date on the latest advances in diagnosis and treatment strategies and to provide exceptional care for their patients
Through the app users will be able to read all content from the print journal, take Derm Dx quizzes which help users learn about difficult-to-identify dermatologic conditions and use medical calculators to evaluate blood pressure, determine body mass, assess liver function and more.
The app will also provide users with all the latest reports on breakthrough treatments, disease outbreaks, drug approvals and recalls and clinical research, and allow users to view medical slideshows to educate patients in-office about clinically relevant topics.
Alongside this, the app will also give users access to hundreds of NP and PA-specific accredited CME/CE courses from Haymarket’s myCME education library
‘The Clinical Advisor is the most read journal among NPs and PAs,’ said editor Joe Kopcha. ‘We’ve brought the same exceptional clinical content to a convenient, easy-to-use application that can be accessed at any time through a smart phone or tablet.’
An Android version of the app is currently in development and will be available later this year.
