If you’ve been following our site, you know the iMedicalApps Team was at HIMSS 2010 earlier this month, where we covered the conference in great detail.
Two of our senior writers, Dr. Wodajo, and Satish Misra, conducted interviews, wrote commentary, and captured great videos of actual medical applications in action – most of this mobile technology is yet to be released.
We rolled out posts at breakneck speed, sometimes twice a day, so we’ve compiled a “highlight reel” of the products we covered in case you missed something – from iPhone dictation software, real time ICU monitors, and soon to be released mobile electronic health records – there’s a bit for everyone.
Also, we can’t wait to see how some of these apps will look on the iPad.
Nuance, the makers of Dragon Medical Dictation, a favorite dictation service among many physicians, announced at HIMSS they are bringing the same medical transcription service to the iPhone. We have some great video of this soon to be released app in action.
Epocrates made a big splash early in the conference by announcing an electronic health record product aimed at solo and small practices. The electronic health record will be a stand-alone app, along with having a web interface. Epocrates informed us they anticipate the product to achieve CCHIT certification — hopefully making it eligible for stimulus funds.

Announced formally at HIMSS was the iPhone version of Visual Logic, appropriately named Visual Dx Mobile — an app that shows high quality diagnostic images in response to user queries, and does much more. The app contains over 18,000 images as well as text information such as next steps in management, diagnostic pearls, recommended tests, and ICD-9 codes. We have video of the app in action.
