Google needs to include a "Medical" section on the Android Market

Given that a growing number of physicians and other health care professionals are using Android smartphones in the clinical setting, Google really needs to add a "Medical" section in the Android Market (the equivalent of the Apple App Store on Android).

We currently have the following categories:
  • Health
  • Reference
  • Tools
  • Widgets
A number of medical apps would fall into several of those categories. The Apple App Store lists a "Medical" category (even though they include apps that are NOT really medical). On iMedicalApps, you'll see an Open Letter to Google requesting the creation of a "Medical" category.
