Pocket Derm, The New #2 Medical Application on the iTunes App Store

Pocket Derm is a new medical app acting as a concise guide to the most frequently encountered dermatologic diagnoses. Featuring images of over 50 skin conditions, along with clear definitions, it is a resource for medical professionals and students.

 
PRLog - Sep. 13, 2010 - SAN DIEGO -- Pocket Derm is a new medical application for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch released by DoNoHarm Apps on September 8, 2010. It has been said that trying to keep up in medical school is like trying to drink from a fire hose on full blast – there is no way to take it all in. Indeed, medical students often find themselves drowning in courses like anatomy and biochemistry, and then in rigorous clinical rotations like internal medicine and general surgery. Faced with these daunting, broad subjects, it is easy for students to let other topics, like dermatology, slip through the cracks. At the same time, medical educators often gloss over dermatology, leaving medical graduates less-than-prepared to handle the common skin conditions they’ll be sure to encounter. But now, there’s help for even the most overwhelmed medical student or resident: Pocket Derm.

Pocket Derm is a concise guide to the most frequently encountered dermatologic diagnoses. Featuring crisp, colorful images of over 50 skin conditions, along with clear definitions, Pocket Derm is a great resource for the busy student or doctor who needs to compare rashes at the bedside.  Plus, with a glossary full of high-yield derm terms, the novice can gain confidence describing rashes correctly to communicate with experts. And for those budding dermatologists out there, Pocket Derm is a great starting point. All users can take advantage of the Request a Diagnosis feature, and have access to free, unlimited updates.

Since its release this past week, Pocket Derm has been ranked by the iTunes App Store as the #2 medical application.  Within the first 3 days of release, it has received over 20 positive 5-star reviews and has been downloaded by medical students and professionals from over 23 countries.

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States. The National Cancer Institute estimates that over 1 million cases of skin cancer will be diagnosed in 2010 alone. With these sobering statistics in mind, Pocket Derm aims to arm the medical student, the medical resident, and every healthcare professional with the tools to approach basic dermatologic diagnosis. When you’ve got the tools in your pocket, the world of derm is a friendlier place.

DoNoHarm Apps was founded in 2010 by a doctor and an IT expert with the goal of developing useful, relevant, quality mobile device applications for busy medical professionals and students.  For more information on Pocket Derm, please contact DoNoHarm Apps at media@donoharmapps.com.
