Will you use Mobile Apps for Fighting Infectious Diseases?
I have just read about the new mobile app from the Sanford Guide which is recognized as the essential reference for infectious disease treatment. They announced the release of its first mobile app for the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. The Sanford Guide App, available on Apple’s App Store for $29.99, contains the comprehensive guidelines and recommendations featured in the well-known pocket-size guides used by health care professionals in treatment decision making for over 40 years.
The new mobile Sanford Guide provides access to critical information on treatment of infectious diseases, for use by health care professionals for timely and effective treatment at the point of care.
The Sanford Guide delivers convenient, comprehensive recommendations for treatment and prevention of bacterial, fungal, viral, retroviral, parasitic and mycobacterial infections. It provides recommendations for surgical prophylaxis, and relevant drug information covering pharmacology, adverse effects, drug-drug interactions and dose adjustments, all supported by editor commentary and detailed references.
It’s truly amazing to me how new high technology has become part of our everyday lives at such lightening speed.
Will you and your medical colleagues be using this new mobile app? We would love to know your thoughts!
