Access to Medical Information at the point of care is critical in ensuring safe and effective medical practices. Medical eGuides(MEG) apps provide a way for clinicians to deliver their guidelines, protocols and clinical practice guides to staff members on their own mobile devices. Access to this information at the point of care provides immediate guidance and helps to improve patient outcomes.
