Mobile Networking with Your ASCP Colleagues
Friday, May 11, 2012
Mobile Apps for the iPhone and Android are now available for the ASCP online membership directory. As an added benefit for members, the Apps are free, and provide immediate and convenient access to directory information.
Several ASCP members have already made good use of the mobile applications. “I downloaded the App when I first heard about it from ASCP Chief Operating Officer Steve Ciaccio,” said William E. Schreiber, MD, FASCP, an ASCP Board Member who works at Vancouver General Hospital in Vancouver, B.C., Canada. “I had my iPad with me, and I started to use the App immediately to look up colleagues. This App makes it very easy to get contact information on the go.”

ASCP Board Member Steven H. Kroft, MD, FASCP, is another early adopter of the new App. “There are frequent circumstances where one needs to track down a colleague at another hospital or institution, and people move around so much,” said Dr. Kroft, Staff Pathologist, Medical College of Wisconsin, Milwaukee. “This is a very important tool for connectivity,” I’ve already used it several times, and it’s a great way to reach people on the fly. I think our membership will embrace this.”
