Mayo Medical Laboratories is introducing two comprehensive mobile applications for iPhones and iPads, allowing physicians and pathologists unparalleled access to clinical laboratory expertise from Mayo Clinic.
The Lab Catalog app provides guidance on test selection and result interpretation, enabling physicians to search for tests by disease, test name or test ID. In addition to test information, the app provides direct access to educational resources such as videos, articles and testing algorithms.
The Lab Reference app provides users with quick access to reference values, uses, method names, cautions, testing algorithms, and clinical and interpretive information for each test.
"Mayo Clinic has always put the needs of patients first, and the mobile test catalog and reference apps were developed to provide physicians the information they need to care for their patients and provide the best health care possible," says Franklin Cockerill, M.D., president and CEO, Mayo Medical Laboratories. "The Mayo Medical Laboratories apps are literally an in-your-pocket resource for physicians across the world, extending beyond our walls and following them wherever they go."
The applications are optimized for each device's screen size. The applications also will work offline and automatically update once a mobile connection becomes available.
