3. Calculate by QxMD
Every physician knows having a good medical calculator is crucial in almost any specialty. One of the unique characteristics of this app is the ability for providers to search for calculators by specialty. While this might seem like a good idea, most providers don’t actually scroll through to find calculators they want to use. Rather, we often use the search feature for the medical calculators we want to use.
In our testing, we would have preferred if the Search function was more readily available, instead of being behind the scenes, as our demonstration video indicates.
Once you get past this downside, the algorithms and calculators the app provides are plentiful, and more importantly, easy to use. The developers of the app provide a nice double panel user interface for quickly plugging in information.
Check out the video to see the double panel display. Unfortunately the app doesn’t utilize this in vertical mode.
