Countdown to MEDICA 2014

by Robert Garment, Executive Editor | November 05, 2014
MEDICA is now less than a week away, and for the 3rd year in a row, MEDICA will host a live competition for the best Medical App for use in the daily routine of a doctor's office or in the daily routine of a hospital.

The entries and the event, entitled "The MEDICA App Competition," can be seen in Hall 15, Stand 15C24.

The "Call for Entries"
A Call for Entries went out earlier this year to the IT community, and from August to October 2014, app developers from all over the world were invited to submit their Medical Apps. These submissions were reviewed and screened by a MEDICA Expert Team. And in the end 10 developers qualified to participate in the live event at MEDICA.
