Your patients are not just living longer – they’re living longer with chronic conditions. To make the best of it, they need to be empowered to look after themselves. It just so happens we have an app for that.
Practical Apps is dedicated to giving patients the tools they need to look after their health in collaboration with you, their primary care provider. On your behalf, here we take a critical look at mobile health apps to figure out which can actually help patients and which are just digital snake oil.

Dr. Matthew Cruickshank
With more than 80,000 new cases a year, skin cancer is a common disease in Canada. Skin self-examination and reduction of UV exposure are two important ways to reduce the burden of skin cancer in Canada. Apps can help with risk factor assessments and education on prevention and screening. They can also provide tools to help users self-examine and monitor their skin.
Practical Apps is a collaboration between the Ontario Telemedicine Network (OTN) and the Women’s College Hospital Institute for Health System Solutions and Primary Care (WIHV).
