Here at the International Journal of Public Health we are interested in following the latest developments in technology as related to Public Health (and we have a facebook and twitter account to prove it!). We have talked to you in the past for the use of mobile applications for health (not only once but twice). Today we are back with a few additions to those lists.
- Public Health Core Journals: This is a RSS-reader with journals indexed as “Public Health” in The Abridged Index Medicus (free of charge)
- The Nation’s Health: The monthly newspaper of the American Health Association (free of charge)
- myEpiTable LITE and myEpiTable PRO: The former is the free version and the latter the full, paying version of the same application. These applications perform epidemiological calculations and promises to make epidemiology fun!
- Skyscape Medical Resources , a free application with a lot of medical resources, including drug information, medical calculators and clinical information on over 850 topics.
- The Outbreak Watch application analyzes social networks and provides real-time analysis specifically for public health officials and healthcare professionals, but is available to everyone for free. Select a location to view current trending medical outbreak information.
Are you familiar with any of those applications? I look forward to trying the myEpiTable one! What about you?
