Great app, includes helpful treatment plans and guidelines.
This app is quick & easy in my daily clinical setting as a Women's Health NP. Highly recommend.
I use this app every day. BMI is now a vital sign for every new patient.
guidelines, charts, tx, diet. awesome!!
Love this app. Easy to use
I like using this app because it's easy to use and almost impossible to mess up. I love having one app for clinic when I need to calculate a BMI or check my treatment plan using the treatment algorithm before I present it to my attending. This app is fantastic because it has BMI, BMR, & TDEE calculators, as well as activity level conversion factors, treatment algorithms, and BMI charts ALL IN ONE DEDICATED APP. It also shows many of the equations if you need to see them, which is very helpful for medical school. I wish the height input for the BMI calculator would allow users to enter height in feet AND inches, rather than inches alone, or cm. That would be a more user friendly app in my opinion, and worthy of 5 stars.
I am an Internist with a special interest in treating type 2 diabetes and this app is excellent to use while I counsel patients on duet and exercise to get to goal. Thanks...great app!
Great tool. I use it all the time both personally and professionally.
Easy to use. Easy to understand. A must have for nurses
I am a surgeon and I am using this app in my clinic for my patient especially the patient who need bariatric surgery such as sleeve gastrectomy. I found this app an excellent program to calculate the BMI for my patient and to classify them which group of obesity and from it I can advice & plan the treatment for my patients. Thank you
Previous edition was great too.Thanks for con't efforts to send us good products.Absolutely excellent , no other can compare at this time.
Use it everyday. Great quizzes.
Concise app. Easy to use.
Precise as current and curate of comparative technology.
Easy-to-use interface and excellent algorithms and further information! I might use this on a lot of patients!
Convenient format, easily accessible, useful "first contact" tool. Tracking med interactions and conditions on a devise you can have with you at all times comes in handy. What would make this a five star app would be the ability to maintain several profiles with the above information. This would eliminate the need to clear the device for each patient and maintain profile information without compromising HIPAA data. Of course I understand there may be technical obstacles to accommodating this, not my specialty. All said, well done.
I like this app, but it would be great if it would calculate peds as well.
Good app, easy to use, but need percentages for pediatric patients.
Very dynamic and helpful
Why does it give you results in Kg/m when you're entering in pounds and inches for weight and height? Shouldn't the units stay consistent?
This program should allow input of the height in feet and inches.
Terrible it has been trying to update for 2 months and has been unsuccessful. If i could remove it off my phone i would.
This app generates inaccurate data results. It calculates my BMI 10 points higher than my actual BMI, assessed through weekly body impedance analysis at home and quarterly by my physician--those assessments are in accord. I recognize there are many BMI calculation methods, but the methodology used in this app really should be revisited and perhaps it needs a serious update.
This looks and works great now. Thanks!
Crap. Does not cover children. Data is available. Shame on Epocrates.
It works now that there's been an app update
Awesome app. Works for me
Stuck at the disclaimer page
No tool. Just a disclaimer. Deleted and downloaded again. Turned phone off and on. iPhone 5 w latest update. Using something else.
Where is the nice sliding bar that was in the prior version? It was very helpful. Big ad appears now. Now this app is the same as built in calculators in other programs, no reason to use this anymore.
I think it works great
I have downloaded this app for the third time and can't get passed the disclaimer page.
It has it all.
Can't get past disclaimer page
There is a small bug that is easily fixable. I got in touch with the very helpful folks at Epocrates. Here is how you fix it. (1) open BMI tool (it won't let you past sign in) and Force-quit BMI Tool (2) Put the device off the Internet grid (turn on Airplane mode + no WiFi) (3) Launch BMI Tool. It will ask for credentials. (4) Enable Internet (Turn off airplane mode and/or Enable Wifi) (5) Enter credentials (or click accept) , you are good to go.
Before installing the new BMI "update" there was a nice sliding bar that allowed quick data input of both height and weight. It USED to be very easy to increase & decrease height or weight to quickly see classification changes among BMI categories. The new update completely eliminates that convenient & effective teaching tool. I WANT BACK THE PRIOR VERSION !! And what's up with the new full page advertisement I have to close prior to even getting to the BMI app? Can I uninstall the update?
Works quick and well and can help with care.
Where did the old tool go. I can no longer set the ht and slide the weight to obtain a range of acceptable bmi measure. Hate it
Got a new update today. Now I can't get past the disclaimer page.
The new update is really a step back, as far as I'm concerned. The old version had a sliding bar, so you could quickly and easily see goals and show patients their BMIs and target weights.
Good patient clinical tool
The old interface was better
First it said I need an Internet connection to use this app (I'm on Wi-Fi). Then when I tried to log in it said my connection is too slow or it timed out (in 3 seconds?) Delete…
I have downloaded this app twice & it still doesn't work. It opens to the initial page but won't go anywhere after that. Does not open up the tool.
Use on a frequent basis.
I can't even get to the app because it won't accept my passwords. Seems like a great app but can't get to it, so it was a waste of time.
