Cool "app'

Reading up on hospitals and their use of social media, ran into some info that The Jewish Hospital & St. Mary’s HealthCare in Louisville has developed Blackberry and iPhone apps, that allow the user to perform relevant tasks, such as:
  • Finding a physician near you and even requesting an appointment
  • Registering for events
  • Keeping track of the latest JHSMH news
  • Receiving interesting health news and tips
  • Monitoring your food intake with a calorie tracker and food diary
  • Determining if you are in a healthy weight range with a BMI calculator
Looked/sounded pretty cool, so I downloaded and installed on my BB Torch, then gave it a whirl...

Turned out to be a shortcut to a customized web site, which performed as advertised for news, events, BMI calculator, etc. It did have a small problem when I tried the 'Find a Physician' functionality...

Not exactly an "app" but pretty cool functionality to allow access to relevant info via a smartphone...
