Apps & Tablets and More!: Point of Care Tools

Learn more about tablets and apps!

Intro

The Health Sciences Library subscribes to a number of Point-of-Care tools, designed to assist you with diagnosing patients while at the bedside or in the office.  All of these apps are Evidence-Based and contain authoritative information.  While the content may be similar, each is organized differently, so try them all and find your favorite.

Important Information

All apps require a personal account which must be created on a Rowan network computer before you can use them with the University Libraries subscriptions.

Each box explains how to get a personal account for that app.  It isn't the same process for each.  

Contact a librarian if you have any problems!
