Sailing Through the App Store Review

There has been a revolutionary growth in iOS applications since Apple opened its stores to developers eight years ago. Over 1.5 million apps are available on Apple’s App Store as of today.

Scenario 1: You are a physician traveling to attend a conference or on vacation. A patient is nearing his mandated checkup. Since the situation might not be as urgent as to warrant a referral to another physician, it is best that you advise him on next steps until you meet him in person. So what do you do?

Scenario 2: You are traveling. There is a situation requiring urgent medical attention and you want your physician’s advice before attempting anything else. You log in to your provider’s mobile application and reach out to the doctor, who immediately accesses your medical history and test reports, to send you his advice on treatment methods.
