Healthline Ranks Two @Point of Care™ Apps Among its
Top 14 Multiple Sclerosis Apps
Livingston, New Jersey – August 29, 2013 –@Point of Care™ is pleased to announce that two of its iPhone/iPad apps focused on multiple sclerosis (MS) treatment and management have been included in Healthline Networks’ 2013 survey of the 14 Best Multiple Sclerosis iPhone & Android Apps, and also available in Windows 8. This marks the second consecutive appearance in the survey for both apps.
The Healthline editors selected their top 14 MS apps based on potential to aid people with MS and their loved ones, user ratings, affordability, accessibility, format, functionality, and relevance to MS and its community’s needs.
Multiple Sclerosis @Point of Care™, updated in real time, is a clinical decision-making platform for healthcare professionals that supports best practices and evidence-based medicine, utilizing proprietary software and design. Powered by originally researched, peer-reviewed content presented by expert faculty, the app delves into screening, diagnosis, advances in imaging technologies, updates on current and emerging therapies, complementary and alternative medicine, symptom management, cognitive impairment, and a range of special topics critical to the optimal management of MS. @Point of Care™ puts a robust knowledge base, curated and updated dynamically by world-renowned specialists and content editors, into the clinician’s hands at the time it is acutely needed.
MedImage Cases® Multiple Sclerosis, a collection of interactive peer-reviewed case studies, explores the latest advances in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and other imaging technologies and their practical application to MS patient care, disease management, and treatment monitoring. Each case presents actual patient MRIs and histories, insightful audio commentary and analysis by a renowned neurology expert, a scrolling/downloadable transcript, and supplemental patient education materials. Share Your Knowledge™ and Share Your Case™, two new collaboration tools, enable clinician participants to comment on any presented case and submit their own intriguing or challenging case for discussion, respectively.
Both apps also offer free continuing medical education (CME/CE) credit for physicians, nurses, pharmacists, and physician assistants.
“We are honored that, for the second year running, Healthline has recognized our two MS apps for excellence and relevance from among so many other worthy candidates,” said Robert Stern, Chief Executive Officer of @Point of Care™.
