Boston Children’s Hospital’s own Eli Sprecher reviewed the free iPad app DrawMD Pediatrics on iMedicalApps. Sprecher says this is a great app for communicating with patients and parents. The app is easy to use and has many customizable drawings that facilitate understanding of medical conditions and procedures. Downsides include that the “Pediatric Urology” section does not include female urogenital anatomy, and all the app’s images are of Caucasian boys, without an option to choose images that better represent patient gender and ethnicity.
Remember, the library has iPads available for loan for hospital employees and come pre-loaded with a number of apps, including DrawMD Pediatrics.
