iGeriatrics app review: all of the American Geriatrics Society's free clinical information in one place 2021

Reviews

Introduction

This is a powerful medical reference for any healthcare professional who is tasked with the care of geriatric patients, consolidating all of the American Geriatrics Society's free clinical information into one convenient medical app.

Although the vast majority of the content in this iPhone medical app is lost on me, I can very easily see how much of a must-have it is for anyone taking care of geriatric patients. Having this kind of reference to hand must be incredibly useful when memory fails and you need to access information in that moment.

The interface is very clearly laid-out with a fairly generic design that I think lends itself nicely to the overarching purpose of the app, so I’m very impressed overall and would definitely suggest taking iGeriatrics for a spin.

For more details on why I beleive you should check out this top medical app for iPhone, keep reading our iGeriatrics app review below.
