Uni of WA launches iPad app for doctors
- 26 July, 2011 12:02
The University of Western Australia has launched an iPad app that helps doctors correctly diagnose sick patients.
Clinical lead behind the Diagnostic Imaging Pathways (DiPHD) app, Professor Richard Mendelson, said he hope the new app would improve healthcare professionals’ chances of making the right diagnosis.
“30 per cent of imaging requests are incorrect or inappropriate,” Mendelson said.
“The iPad application DiPHD will help make sure that patients have the best chance of getting the most accurate diagnosis.”
Developed by the university’s Centre for Software Practice (CSP) in conjunction with the Royal Perth Hospital, the app was based on common clinical situations and includes information on 130 major organ systems.
In a statement from CSP, the university said it created an app for the iPad because of the device’s ease of use by doctors.
