HosNav was the winning entry in Osler’s national student app contest, Kiss My App – which was one of the first contests of its kind in Canada. The contest challenged undergraduate students to think about a perceived issue in health care, and then develop an app to help address it. Off the heels of its success, Osler will be launching the second Kiss My App contest in the months to come.

HosNav is developed for iPhones, now available for download for free from the App Store.
