Orange County Register

Smartphones and tablets could one day become as essential to medicine as stethoscopes and thermometers. With that future in mind, 30 UC Irvine medical students joined forces with 100 computer science students for the university’s first “Med App Jam.” Eighteen teams competed to develop apps for the iPhone and iPad. The winners were announced last week, with the top award going to Life Buoy, which allows users in a natural disaster to find relief centers or request prescription refills.
