    Who would have thought that continuously playing addicting games, watching videos, and talking through multiple social media apps could have led to the appearance of medical accessories right on the palm of your hands.

    The current healthcare system is so specialized that it has even reached the technological apps field, increasing direct and indirect communication between healthcare providers and patients, something incredibly important around these days.

    It is believed that, if used in the right way, these apps can avoid common mistakes that are likely to happen due to lack of relevant information or its misinterpretation.

    Because of the relevance that these apps are beginning to have and the possible population reach of future apps, experts on the matter have done several researchers in order to establish regulations that would allow quality, control, certification, and the maximum benefits for users.

    These health apps are especially useful for women out there. Not that men cannot use them, but women, typically, are known to be more alert when discussing health topics, particularly when these involve their own bodies or their children´s.

    These apps are capable of organizing your menstrual cycle, your children vaccine schedules and doctor´s appointments, provide healthy tips, discuss medical topics live with your own physician, tell you how much medicine you should take, and even tell you if you have a serious problem or not. And the best thing? Most of these apps are very simple to use and completely free!

    Here you have a list of the most appealing and used medical apps of the past year:

    Doctor on Demand. This app allows you to connect with board-certified doctors in your area. You will not get a comprehensive diagnosis with it, but you can get quick help for health issues, such as the flu, anxiety, skin irritations, heartburn, among others. For those who need a quick consultation, this is great.

    Glow. Keeping track of ovulation is a crucial part of becoming pregnant. This app can help women forecast ovulation, providing a period tracking guide that captures a range of useful health insights. This is a powerful tool for women interested in controlling their reproductive health.

    GoodRx. This is an app for buying and comparing drugs, allowing you to compare prescription prices, finding deals, and helping find the best medication for your budget. Of course, before using it, you should consult your doctor and know what medication is right for you.

    Medical Terminology. Tired of not knowing what a term used by your doctor means? Well, this app is just the right thing for you. This is a reference guide, which can help you learn various medical terms, finding information about a variety of uncommon medical words and phrases.

    Medscape. Probably one of the best medical apps out there. You will find all sorts of medical stuff in here. From basic medical knowledge to the last news on the field and from instructional videos to medication side effects. Although it´s mostly for professionals, if you have certain medical knowledge, you will find it pretty helpful.
