If you are a new doctor, have moved to a new location, or you just have the capacity to take on more patients this app can help you out. The HealthTap MD app can be used on your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone by doctors as a way of branching out and finding new patients. The app also makes it possible to spread the word of their reputation to patient, colleagues, and more. HealthTap MD is just filled with tools and features that make it a very useful app for doctors to have.
A doctor isn't going to necessarily go out and advertise when he or she is in search of new patients, so here's a way to find some in a professional manner. You will be able to enhance your reputation as a doctor, which means more people start to notice you, and therefore your patient base will build. It's a domino effect. You can actually set yourself apart from other doctors by setting yourself up as an expert and showing people just where your areas of expertise are.
This app hasn't been updated in a little while now with its last update addressing bug fixes and performance issues. The app currently has four out of five stars from users who are clearly seeing the benefits to using it. At the same time there are some negative comments you will come across all of which seem to mention bugs of one type or another. This app's latest update should have fixed these issues, so the comments shouldn't still be relevant.

So what else can this app do for you as a medical professional? Well for starters you can create a customized way to chat with your patients on the go. This is done in a secure HIPAA environment. You can chat with colleagues to share information and advice, start setting up a referral network, learn about new practices and information from other professionals, and so much more. It's almost a reference tool in some senses. If you want to stay up-to-date use the notifications you can set up so you are alerted as specific things occur.
