Medical Apps for BB10
Just putting a call out to app developers to start making some medical apps for BB10. Medical and allied health practitioners lover their apps and the best way to get people moving back to the platform is to have some great medical apps. Those that are inclined visit the itunes store and have a look at the best rated medial apps for ideas. I really want to move back to the platform but need medical apps to be available.
I hope that Medscape can get onboard as well as unbound medicine. These guys make great apps on iOS however for security reasons i am always hesitant to put patient data into any apps. And considering that Blackberry has great security a patient database for rounding would be awesome.

Just heard back from WebMD and my question regarding their MedScape:
Thank you for your interest. At this time, we do not have any plans to develop any further Medscape Mobile applications for the Blackberry Operating System. We have made significant advances on our Mobile Website, and it is almost a replica of our app. You can use the mobile site by visiting Medscape: Medscape Access from your mobile device browser.

Hackers hold medical records for ransom in Australia
By AuntMinnie.com staff writers
December 14, 2012 -- Seven years of patients' electronic medical records (EMRs) at a medical clinic in Miami, Queensland, are being held for ransom by hackers, according to Australian television channel ABC News.
The Miami Family Medical Centre discovered on December 8 when attempting to log into its EMR database that hackers, believed to be from Eastern Europe or Russia, had commandeered the clinic's files by encrypting them. The hackers had posted a message demanding a payment of $4,000 Australian ($4,420 U.S., 3,211 euros) for the files to be restored to the clinic. The clinic will not pay the ransom.
Clinic co-owner David Wood told ABC News reporter David Lewis that the hackers penetrated what the clinic's IT consultants felt were robust firewalls and passwords. Updated virus protection software was in place.
The EMR held thousands of medical records of patients treated over the past seven years. The clinic is not believed to have had backup tapes or a backup archive. Jason Fillmore, a security expert, told ABC News that very sophisticated military-grade encryption had been utilized, and that decrypting the database would be too difficult.
This incident follows 11 others of ransom being requested for hacked computer files in small and midsized businesses in Queensland over the past year.

I was searching the forums today to see if anyone had managed to sideload the WebMD app. I work in the healthcare industry and I use apps such as WebMD, Medscape, First Aid and Nurse Manual all the time. WebMD is the most important one and its available on Android as well as iOS.
I hope we start seeing some of these medical apps soon. The Q10 sure looks tempting but productivity always comes first.
