Clinically Relevant Technologies Releases New Medical iPhone App To Fill Gap In Adherence To Low Back Pain Management Guidelines
Date:3/2/2010

Clinically Relevant Technologies counts on the iPhone to fill the gap in poor physician adherence to low back pain management guidelines with the release of new medical iPhone app.

(PRWEB) March 2, 2010 -- Clinically Relevant Technologies released a new medical iphone app for the iPhone platform this week to help bridge an expensive health care gap. The release comes on the heels of a study published last month in the Archives of Internal Medicine that showed general practioners are not following guidelines for effective management of low back pain. The study concluded that this "unendorsed care may contribute to the high costs of managing LBP, and some aspects of the care provided carry a higher risk of adverse effects."

Low back pain is one of the most common generators of health care visits and its reported that at least 25% of Americans have had an episode of back pain that lasts at least a full day within the last 3 months. This is not without significant cost as over $25 billion are reportedly spent each year managing low back pain, and 2% of the entire U.S. workforce receives compensation for low back pain each year (Chou, Annals of Internal Medicine, 2007). These guidelines can be followed with no increase in risk for the patient while at the same time providing even better clinical outcomes and reduced costs according to another study (Fritz, Medical Care, 2007).

Clinically Relevant Technologies aims to bridge this gap by providing point-of-care information to clinicians with the new Low Back Pain Management Guidelines medical application for the iPhone™. Clinicians can now access interactive information for screening, diagnosis, and interventions based on the American College of Physicians and American Pain Society's published guidelines.
