doctors applications

Medical Apps are accepted,and in common use amongst most physicians. The medical applications used by doctors vary upon the specialty, and the computer savvy of the physician. The Apple App Store has the most comprehensive listing of all Healthcare Apps, and that is the place most medical application programmers desire to be placed. However, a company, Happtique has been started in 2012, which specialized in medical applications, and believes that there will be a huge market in the future, not only for medical applications, but patient applications. Their organization of medical apps is fantastic, and this company has the chance to take over Apple’s mantle as the go-to site for physicians to get their medical apps.  Incidentally, Happtique is also trying to establish criteria as of  June 2012 for judging the worth of medical applications, since there are so many, many of which have no medical use.  Stay tuned.
