*Such* a Wonderful App!

The Fast Facts database has long been a favorite resource of mine. This offline, searchable, and flexible application (including the thoughtful feature of instant customizable text-size adjustment) is a point-of-care godsend that benefits providers, patients, and families during critical and precious times.

Home hospice volunteer, nurse

As a nurse in a different area of practice my regular job, I volunteer in a support position in home hospice. This is a fantastic reference to have on my tablet. Has aided as a template for some self guided reading and study.
Simple smart pages such as “writing a letter of condolence” are very thoughtful.

Incredibly useful app!

As a hospitalist, I need access to good information quick and fast. Fast facts is just what you do expect - evidenced based information that helps me make a prompt diagnosis and initiate treatment for common medical conditions. Don't be confused by the name, this is an app that every medical professional can use. Have been using it since the first addition and he keeps getting better!
