t’s been more than two years since the editors at iMedicalApps went through the medical apps available for iOS and found the best medical apps Physicians and other healthcare providers should download onto their iPhone. During that time the face of the App Store has changed, along with the phone itself.

Since our original list, there have been a tremendous number of new apps Physicians should consider downloading — many that we use on a daily basis.

One of the unique things about our search was the discovery of essential “non-medical” apps for healthcare professionals. These apps are not in the medical category and are used by the general public for other purposes — but when configured appropriately, become essential tools for Physicians.

This list required a tremendous amount of research and time and we hope you enjoy some of the unique applications we found — some of these apps might help you save a life. Remember to register on our site (free) to view the accompanying videos we made to give you an idea of how best to use the apps.


The following list was compiled by the Editor-in-chief and Managing Editors of iMedicalApps. The editors individually searched through the iTunes store (desktop) and App Store (iOS) in the free medical apps category and compiled their top medical apps list. Key features looked at were quality of content, real world applicability, and user interface. After individual lists were compiled by the editors, the lists were compared and key categories were made to help delineate the medical apps functionality.

The following categories were selected:

– “Non-medical” apps critical for health care providers
– Drug Reference
– Medical Literature Curation apps
– Medical Calculators
– Medical Language translators
– General Reference
– Patient Education
– Specialty Education
– Continuing Medical Education (CME)
– Social Networks

  1. My Baby Milk is an app which helps healthprofessionals not only see at a glance if the nutritional intake of a baby is satisfactory, but also their growth rate. It has lots of information about the nutritional content of the different milk types, and information about normal growth. It was developed by a Pediatrician who has been using the pre-release version for a couple of years! On the Apple store.
