The app is called Prevent Group B Strep and is available on Android and iOS.
Dr. Byington worked with a team of professionals to move the 2010 Guidelines for the Prevention of Perinatal GBS Disease into a more user-friendly interface. This streamlines interpretation of the guidelines at the point of care.
The app takes the user (pediatric and obstetric care providers) through a series of questions concerning the patient. Depending upon the answers, Prevent Group B Strep provides a specific patient management plan or appropriate antibiotic regimen in adherence to the 2010 Guidelines.
By converting the guidelines into a scenario driven app, pediatric and obstetric providers can better implement evidence-based guidelines to prevent GBS disease.
