Baku, 2 June 2020: A new mobile app has been launched to help medical personnel make informed clinical decisions based on the most up-to-date research findings and information, including all the latest data on COVID-19 diagnosis and treatment.

The new ‘MD Reference’ app was released by Azerbaijan’s Ministry of Health’s Public Health and Reforms Centre after being developed in partnership with UNDP and Ezgil Medical Technologies.

The app will help doctors and other medical personnel update their professional knowledge and skills, keeping them informed of all the latest advances in medicine and guiding them on how to implement new and improved techniques.

The app features information about the latest clinical guidelines from WHO and international medical societies. It also has online training section that provides healthcare workers with access to latest video lectures by national and international medical experts.

High quality healthcare depends on highly informed decision-making based on the latest medical achievements in diagnosis and treatment. However, the sheer speed of developments in medicine make it increasingly difficult for busy medical professionals to keep up to date. The new MD Reference app makes this information easier and much faster to access, enhancing the quality of healthcare.

MD Reference mobile app is available for Android now. An iOS version is coming soon.
