    Developers are using mobile platforms to deliver an array of useful health-related apps, from calorie watchers to diabetes tools and medicine directories.

    As more and more healthcare professionals adopt tablet devices, e-health apps may become increasingly important in hospitals and clinics.

    Here's a selection of some of the most imaginative — and unusual — apps in this area.

    Medscape
    Medscape is a veritable treasure-trove of medical information: it includes a directory of conditions, treatments, medical news, tables and protocols. There's also an extensive offline library.

    The app also features a compendium of drugs and herbal remedies, plus a guide to continuing medical education.

    Medscape is free for iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Android and BlackBerry devices.

  • Wellnote app

    Wellnote
    The handy Wellnote app is the brainchild of Ara Darzi, professor of surgery at St Mary's Hospital, London, and chairman at Imperial College London's Institute for Global Health Innovation. The app helps you find local health services and rate them, manage your medication and medical history, and catch up on the latest health news.

    The app's information is licensed directly from the NHS Choices database and refreshed daily; however, it currently only covers England.

    Wellnote is available for free for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.
