Happy 2019! Hundreds of medical apps for healthcare providers and patients are bound to show up this year. We’re committed to picking the most useful ones for medical professionals as they come along.

And don’t forget to see what we thought were the best medical apps in 2018.

PushPrescriber

PushPrescriber is an app for obstetricians and delivery teams in any labor and delivery setting. It is a digital version of the study “Pushing the Bounds of Second Stage in Term Nulliparas with a Predictive Model: When Should You Abandon the Ambition of Spontaneous Vaginal Delivery?” (According to their website, this study has been submitted for publication.) Users first input patient information, such as fetal head position and length of the second stage of labor. A customized prediction is then generated that compares the likelihood of vaginal birth and necessary C-Section, as well as mother and child morbidity.
