Mobile Monday Amsterdam impressions

Ivor Kovic @Mobile Monday Amsterdam Several day ago I came back home after presenting at the Mobile Monday Amsterdam event titled Mobile Health. That is me on the left 🙂

I am still impressed by the whole thing. First of all I have to congratulate the organizers (Marc, Yuri, Maarten, Sam, and Martijn) for doing a great job. They fully supported all the speakers from the first contact to the end of the event. The venue where the event took place was an actual church, De Duif, and it was a spectacular choice. From the moment I entered it, I was just blown away. Beautiful light, colors, art, atmosphere. Everything was ready for a great event. I was the first speaker to present after a short break in the middle of the program, and I had so much fun doing it. Mostly because of the crowd which was very educated and full of interesting people. It was such a delight to present to them.

Ivor Kovic @Mobile Monday Amsterdam In my talk, that is me on the right 🙂 I focused on demonstrating how mobile technology has changed the way medical workers treat patients. I started with the most basic examples like the ability to alert emergency medical services with the mobile phone, moved on to more advance staff like accessing the electronic patient record using a smart phone, and finished with demonstrating two cool extensions used to hack the iPhone and give it additional functions useful in medicine. One of these hacks is actual a project of my own, which I will be writing more about soon. For now you can check out my slideshow, although a video of my talk should soon be available as well.

By the way, be sure to check out slideshows from all other presenters who appeared in the event. Slideshare even put the spotlight on the event on their front page.

Also take a look at some gorgeous photographs from the event taken by Hidde van der Lijn.

280 Slides

A new tool for online creation of slide presentations is out. It is called 280 Slides and it is very easy and fun to use. You should definitely consider trying it the next time you have to present. I made a little presentation myself, just to show that you can design pretty nice looking slides and publish them online in under 20 minutes.

Native medical applications for iPhone

Apple Worldwide Developers Conference is taking place this week in San Francisco. Today, as a part of it, we saw yet another legendary keynote from Steve Jobs. It was all about the new iPhone, which is now faster, richer with new features and more affordable. Substantial part of the keynote was dedicated to the developers of native applications for iPhone, who had the chance to demonstrate their applications soon to be available through the iPhone app store. App store is launching in a month and will enable you to download and install third party applications to your iPhone. These are some great news for all iPhone users, but especially to those interested in medicine. It seams that we have a lot to look for, as some great applications will be awaiting for us as soon as the app store opens.

Two applications presented at today’s keynote were related to medicine, and you can see a video of these demonstrations at the end of this post.

Modality will offer interactive flash cards for medical students, but also a lot more. On their website they also prepared a lot of other interactive learning applications for medical students, as well as healthcare professionals. What a great way to learn!

MIMvista has, on the other hand, presented a really powerful radiology application. It is incredible that such an application can run so smoothly on a phone. Currently there are no additional information on their website about this iPhone application, but you can learn more about their applications for PC’s to give you a general idea what to expect.
