‘Calculate’ by QxMD Number 1 Free Medical App

QxMD has recently released ‘Calculate’ for iPhone, a next-generation medical calculator & clinical decision support tool.  Once again, our software is provided freely to the medical community.

The app is the result of a collaboration between clinicians from a multitude of medical specialties and adapts to a user’s area of interest and typical usage.  The content is extensive yet excludes decision tools and calculators that are deemed to have minimal clinical applicability.   While we include typical medical calculators, many of our decision support tools are unique to our app and have been developed in collaboration with the authors who published the original research.

QxMD is excited to announce that as of April 20, 2010, this new application has risen to the number 1 ranked free medical application, surpassing the likes of Epocrates and Medscape.
