Looking to recommend an app? Please keep in a mind a few things about health and medical apps:
Little oversight exists on the quality of the content - look for trusted organizations or review the content and check for credibility.
Dosage calculators that have been reviewed (ex. Insulin dosage calculators) have been found to be lacking and have the potential for patient harm.
Apps that turn mobile devices into medical devices should be researched and FDA approval should be identified before recommending.
