Mobile apps are becoming even more popular in the healthcare industry. There are dozens of apps for doctors and pharmacists to use as a reference. And now there are a great deal of apps for patients as well. As part of your marketing efforts consider gifting healthcare apps to your patients who may be looking to lose weight, quit smoking or keep up with which medications to take when.
This week, I share 9 apps that you can share with your patients. You can either give them an iTunes gift card, email the app to them or create a postcard that you leave at checkout for them to pick up and download at their leisure.
