It is true that app usage is growing, and that healthcare providers need to get on board this train. While these four are valuable (particularly the portal, and women's health), the branded "In Case of Emergency" app we create for hospitals and healthcare providers offers their patients a potentially life-saving feature for smartphones. It puts the user's emergency contact information on the home screen of the phone, ahead of the lock screen, so any paramedic can know who to contact. Then the app itself lists the user's medical conditions, current medications and allergies to medications in order to help healthcare providers offer the best treatment for the user. This inexpensive app is already available in 9 states, with more to come soon. And it requires very little effort on the healthcare providers part to get it up and in the app stores.
