Healthcare is in the middle of a mobile revolution. Doctors are adopting mobile apps that make them more effective, and patients are taking to ones that give them more control over their healthcare. Here are 11 apps that stand out from the crowd.

Asthma patients have a new monitoring tool with iSonea's AsthmaSense mobile app. It lets patients track their breathing and manage their medications with a journal that records symptoms, medication history, and breathing function meter readings.

The home page (pictured) lets patients enter their medications they take, both the regularly scheduled ones and the ones used in unusual and emergency situations. They also can enter readings from peak flow meters, which measure how well air moves out of a person's lungs, and wheeze rate meters. A month's worth of data is available for review and can be shared with physicians.

The app lets users set medication reminders, and turn them on and off. Patients receive alerts when the system determines that their asthma is "not well controlled" or "poorly controlled," based on National Institute of Health guidelines. It can also be used to call for emergency help.

AsthmaSense costs $3.99 and runs on Apple iOS and Google Android mobile devices.

I would like to add another app, VacciTrack, that might be very useful for parents. Its a simple vaccination app that helps to keep track of child's immunization schedule till the age of 10. It gives a reminder before the day of vaccination and a full chart along with missed & upcoming vaccines.

Keeping track of vaccinations for baby is very important as it protects the child against a range of serious and potentially fatal diseases. With busy schedules and multiple tasks at hand, it becomes extremely difficult to monitor immunizations & their dates.

Have a look - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=kmg.android.vaccination

I think the one app that was left out was Tigertext. This is a HIPAA compliance text messaging app that allows doctors to securely send patient information, images and video via HIPAA compliant messaging. A must have in any kind of healthcare facility.
