Best Medical Calculator: QxMD Calculate
Having a solid medical calculator on your smartphone is essential and few have the breadth and depth of QxMD’s Calculate. Whether you’re calculating a Wells Score for a patient with pleuritic chest pain or a PORT score for suspected bacterial pneumonia, Calculate has you covered. The range of calculators is impressive, organized by subject area or alphabetically (though most users will probably use the search function). Most calculators include a brief explanation and the associated reference. Many references open directly in QxMD Read, another iMedicalApps favorite. For users that have institutional credentials, the full text is automatically downloaded as well. Overall, QxMD Calculate is a must have for internists and primary care physicians.
