Choosing Wisely Canada: There's an App for that!

It's true! Choosing Wisely Canada now has mobile apps:

They are free and bilingual (French and English) and you'll find them for Google (in the Play store) and for iOS devices (in the Apple store).

The apps are searchable, listing all the recommendations by speciality. There are also links to promotional videos and a library full of PDFs of physician and patient resources.

I have AirPrint enabled on my iPhone and printer, so I could just pull up a handout from the Choosing Wisely App and print it out  - if I don't want to email it - directly for my patients! 

Now there's an example of seamless technology that actually works to help doctors and patients, and will be a part of creating a smooth-operating, high-value health care system.
