Over the past few years we have seen the emergence of several apps aiming to lend doctors and medical students a helping hand.

While it is always advisable to visit your physician if you have a health issue, this isn’t always possible. Healthcare apps boast a range of useful benefits for patients. For example, MyChart provides a platform through which you can easily stay communicate with your doctor and manage your appointments. Another very helpful app is Mango Health which simplifies your daily health routine by allowing you to set up custom medical reminders, for example when to take your medication or when to drink water etc. When you do not have the opportunity to visit your doctor, these apps may help you to stay healthy.
