American College of Physicians releases ACP Clinical Guidelines mobile app

Clinical practice guidelines are used by physicians and healthcare professionals when they make treatment decision. The ACP has just released a mobile app that contains ACP guidelines.

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

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

“The ACP Clinical Guidelines app continues ACP’s goal to improve health care quality by disseminating evidence-based clinical recommendations through innovative web and mobile applications,” said Amir Qaseem, MD, PhD, MHA, FACP, Director, Clinical Policy, ACP. “And the app will help save busy clinicians one of their most valued assets -- time.”
