The Ottawa Rules app is a brilliant new smartphone app, available for both the iPhone and Android platforms, that is designed to make it easier than ever for doctors and healthcare providers to make smarter and more efficient decisions when it comes to evaluating patients who may be suffering from broken bones.

Developed by a group of doctors working out of the Ottawa Hospital and University of Ottawa, the app works using the principle of the Ottawa Rules, a set of rules that include the well-known Ottawa Knee Rules, Ottawa Ankle Rules and the Canadian C-spine rule, which are designed to help health care professionals figure out if further scans are needed.

What's great about this app is that it helps health care professionals make more informed decisions that make their work more efficient.
