Healio Blog: 2014 marked release of notable orthopedic app releases, improvements

In our opinion, 2014 marked a turning point in the development of orthopedic-focused mobile apps from experimental to a well-established avenue for reaching patients and surgeons. As such, we witnessed the development and release of high quality, high value apps that have the potential to significantly impact and enhance the orthopedic experience as a patient, trainee or surgeon. This blog will review some of the most notable app releases and improvements from 2014.

Last year, we reviewed Insights Orthopedics, a dynamic magazine and content aggregator for orthopedic surgeons. This year, Insights Orthopedics released v2.0, which included significant enhancement and improvements in the product. In our previous review, we highlighted the appealing user interface and expansive search capabilities. All of these features and benefits remain; however, the app now has an improved much smoother user interface and includes the ability to login with an institutional license at thousands of universities worldwide. This now expands the app’s capabilities to provide full-content access to anyone affiliated with a university library. In addition, there is a new section titled “leading journals” to quickly obtain the most relevant literature in one place. The “journal clubs” section has expanded to include monthly selection from prominent university training programs. We encourage readers to download Insights Orthopedics for literature searches and reading from an iPad.
