The new phrase in doctors' offices across the country: there's an app for that.

As smart phones and i-pads make their way into medical practice -- more and more apps are popping up to help doctors effectively treat patients.

The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill created an app that helps athletic trainers determine whether someone suffered a concussion.

They answer a series of questions to learn the likelihood of concussion, and can send the information to a doctor.

Northwestern University created an app that coaches cancer doctors on ways to talk to patients about preserving their fertility.

The program suggests ways doctors can talk about this sensitive topic -- and provides a summary of the options available.
