March 6, 2015 — The American College of Cardiology (ACC) has launched version 2.0 of their Guideline Clinical App. With the addition of the healthy lifestyle and obesity guidelines, the app now contains the full set of clinical prevention guidelines released by ACC/American Heart Association in 2013. These additions expand the collection of clinical guidelines in the app, which already includes guidelines on assessment of cardiovascular risk, treatment of blood cholesterol, atrial fibrillation, heart failure and valvular heart disease.

ACC’s Guideline Clinical App was developed to serve as a mobile home for all ACC/AHA guideline content and related tools. It includes an executive summary and top 10 points for each guideline, as well as a collection of interactive tools such as dosing calculators, scoring tools and algorithms useful to clinicians in determining recommended care

The original version of the app was launched in November 2014, with a second content release in December 2014. Version 2.0 of the app is part of a plan to continuously add guideline content, upgrade functionality and roll out fixes in response to user feedback. More guideline content and improvements are planned throughout 2015. ACC is conducting an impact and evaluation study to help inform future plans for the app. 

The ACC Guideline Clinical App is available for free and can be downloaded to a tablet or smartphone from iTunes and GooglePlay.
