Apps for smartphones and tablet computers are booming. What originally appeared to be nothing more than a gimmick is now "coming of age". Apps may not only revolutionize the private health market, some of them also have the potential to influence how we deal with medicine at home, in hospitals and in medical practices. MEDICA 2016 in Düsseldorf (November 14-17), the world's largest medical trade fair, with more than 4,600 exhibitors from at least 60 different countries, will provide an overview of the latest app trends and some sample applications. Parallel to the presentation of the exhibitors, the "AppCircus", a program element organised in cooperation with "dotopen" as part of the MEDICA HEALTH IT FORUM (formerly MEDICA MEDIA), will again demonstrate just how lively this branch is. At the AppCircus innovative health apps will be presented by their creators with the goal of bringing developers, start-up companies and the organisations involved in the software development together with potential users and project partners from the medical sector and on the purchasing side.
