10 Must-See iPhone Apps for Doctors and Patients

by Nicholas Kolakowski
Since Apple launched the App Store in July 2008, users have downloaded more than 1 billion iPhone apps with a variety of uses (or non-uses, if you consider all the games and procrastination tools currently on the market for the device). Companies such as Google, and Oracle have even introduced enterprise apps for the consumer-centric devices, aiming to solidify their hold on the ever-expanding mobile market. One of the most vital areas of peoples' lives, of course, is health care, and to that end, several iPhone apps have rolled out that allow both patients and physicians to monitor care, keep track of treatments or even see the amount of sleep they're getting. The following apps—all available from the iTunes App Store—aspire to put health care IT in the palm of one's hand.
