App: Primary Health Care Clinical Guide

Produced by South Africa’s The Open Medicine Project, the Department of Health app national-coat-of-arms-high-res-230x300_resizegives health care workers easy access to the country’s Primary Health Care Standard Treatment Guidelines and Essential Medicines List.

Aimed at a broad range of health care workers, the app includes features, like:

  • A cardiovascular risk assessment tool, which efficiently calculates a patient’s percentage risk of having a cardiovascular event such as a stroke or a heart attack in the next 10 years;
  • A paediatric drug dosage calculator, which accurately calculates weight or age-based dosage for children; and
  • A medicine stock out tool, which allows healthcare professionals to report medication shortage and stock-outs directly to the Department of Health.

To download the app, search “PHC Clinical Guide” in the IOS App Store or on Google Play
