ACP Immunization Advisor app makes it easier for doctors to identify vaccines for patients
Date:7/2/2012

Philadelphia, July 2, 2012 -- The latest vaccine indications are available for doctors and other clinicians through the ACP Immunization Advisor app currently available for iPhone and iPad at http://immunization.acponline.org/app.

Immunization providers can search the ACP Immunization Advisor app by age or underlying medical circumstance, or browse the Vaccine Library to determine the vaccines their adult patients need. The latest immunization news and updates from ACP are also available. The content in ACP Immunization Advisor is based on the 2012 ACIP Adult Immunization Schedule.

"ACP's goal is to improve health care quality by disseminating clinical guidance and practice support through innovative web and mobile applications," said Michael S. Barr, MD, MBA, senior vice president, medical practice, professionalism & quality, ACP. "The ACP Immunization Advisor is the third product generated in collaboration with Cientis Technologies and Hot Tomali Communications and we couldn't be more pleased with the result."

Made possible by unrestricted educational grants from Sanofi Pasteur, Merck Vaccines, and Pfizer, Inc., the ACP Immunization Advisor app makes the guidelines for adult vaccination developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) easier to access and use in the context of patient care.

"It's exciting to work on a project that directly improves the way physicians run their practices," said Thomas Stringham, president and co-founder, Cientis Technologies. "By transforming paper-based clinical workflows into digital processes we're able to help physicians save what they value most -- time. Add to that the ability to access the most up-to-date medical information, and you have a formula for reduced health care expenditures and a higher quality of patient care."

The ACP Immunization Advisor app has already received more than 3,000 downloads with strong usage statistics.
