QxMD 800px-Flag of Canada.svg.png is a Canadian software company dedicated to creating high quality, point-of-care tools for practicing health professionals. QxMD is recognized as a leader in developing free medical software for mobiles, and helps to develop content in cooperation with expert physicians from their respective fields. One of QxMD's best apps is its Read by QxMD which helps physicians create their own virtual bookshelves of materials, and table of contents. There are other apps on the market such as Browzine, DocWise and Docphin that do what READ does ie., create a virtual bookshelf. For physicians who want to access the fulltext of articles, health librarians must show them how to connect to their library's various online subscriptions.
