Dr Toolbox iPhone App Demo

The Dr Toolbox App downloads the content of your hospital toolbox and stores it for future reading even when the device is disconnected.

When your device becomes online, the App reconnects to the server and is updated to the latest version.

You need:

  • A recent iOS™ or Android™ device.
  • The "quick access password" for your hospital toolbox. This is usually shared during induction. You can request this clicking the link on the hospital sign in page.

You can watch a screencast of the app on this page, and see a few screenshots below.

The app was launched in the iTunes and Google Play store in May 2016.
