A fantastic medical app for helping your patients be compliant with their prescriptions. Many are familiar with the GoodRx app or the website – but GoodRx for Doctors is a new app they released a few months ago and makes it even easier to make sure your patients are able to afford their medications. The best way to use the app is to bookmark key medications that you often prescribe that can be difficult to afford for patients – such as clindamycin and prednisone.

From UK physicians (orthopedic surgeon and Emergency Medicine physicians) – a great fracture management app that essentially puts an orthopedic surgeon in your pocket. We’ve been fans of OrthoFlow for awhile now.

Our review of OrthoFlow gives details on how to use the app.
