ACP unveils new app for clinical guidelines

April 10, 2013

A new app enables you to access evidence-based clinical recommendations from the American College of Physicians.

Internal medicine physicians and other clinicians now can access evidence-based clinical recommendations from the American College of Physicians (ACP) through a new mobile app.

Available for free for the iPhone, iPad, and Android, the app includes recommendations from ACP’s clinical practice guidelines and guidance statements. Users can access clinical recommendations and rationale, summary tables, algorithms, and high-value care advice for all currently active guidelines in a mobile format designed to be easy to read and interactive.

“The ACP clinical guidelines app continues ACP’s goal to improve healthcare quality by disseminating evidence-based clinical recommendations through innovative web and mobile applications,” says Amir Qaseem, MD, PhD, MHA, FACP, the ACP’s director of clinical policy. “And the app will help save busy clinicians one of their most valued assets: time.”
