Frontline clinicians are often faced with the task of rapidly sifting through a high volume of information from a variety of electronic sources. Managing this information deluge can be overwhelming, yet paramount to the delivery of highvalue healthcare. Thus, today’s clinicians must become the ‘e-Doctors’, who can best leverage mobile technology to overcome the informational challenges at point-of-care. In this review, we provide a framework for clinicians to manage electronic information, and go through a day in the life of an e-Doctor to understand how clinicians may use mobile health apps to accomplish different tasks and enhance the care and learning.
