You may use apps on your portable device to locate restaurants, hotels or coffee shops, but now there’s a free app that could save your life. The Emergency Medical Center Locator (EMCL) iPhone app will direct you to the closest medical center best qualified to take care of your specific emergency anywhere in the world. The app offers recommendations in six specialty areas that tend to require immediate care—trauma, stroke, eye, pediatric, cardiac and burn. “By going to the right facility first, you can avoid wasting precious time and increase your chances of recovery significantly,” says Dr. Bruce Moskowitz, a southern Florida physician who developed the app.
