http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/stat-icd-10-coder/id467916561?ls=1&mt=8

Quickly look up diagnosis codes using the new ICD-10 coding system. All codes are downloaded to your device – no browsing necessary!

STAT ICD-10 Coder contains the latest set of more than 60,000 ICD-10-CM descrtptions (2015 version).

How much are you paying someone to do your diagnosis coding? How much do you lose when codes are not specific enough?

All of the current diagnosis codes are available for quick retrieval by disease classification in a drilldown format with no typing. Code to the highest level of specificity every time. There is no need to overuse nonspecific “NOS” codes that often do not meet medical necessity criteria. You’ll never be at a loss to rapidly find the most specific diagnosis code again.

STAT ICD-10 works faster because it gives you only the information that you need – the diagnosis name and the ICD-10 code. One line per diagnosis.

Searching of index terms is also available via in-app purchase.

Opioid Risk Tool [Free App]

iOS Simulator Screen Shot Sep 5, 2015, 7.52.03 PM

DOCUMENT THE RISK OF OPIOIDS
The Opioid Risk Tool (ORT) is a five-question, self-administered assessment that can be completed within 5 minutes and should be utilized on a patient’s initial visit. It assesses the subject for personal and family history of substance abuse, age, history of preadolescent sexual abuse, and for the presence of depression, attention deficit disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia. In a pilot study of patients with chronic pain, the ORT accurately predicted which patients were at the highest and lowest risks of exhibiting aberrant, drug-related behaviors associated with abuse or addiction. Examples of these behaviors include using more opioids than prescribed, selling prescriptions, losing prescriptions or reporting them stolen, canceling clinic visits, and forging prescriptions.

Cardiovascular Risk 2013 [Free App]

Implement the 2013 AHA/ACC CV Risk Calculator on your iPhone/iPad! (and see what all the fuss is about).

Estimate 10-year and lifetime risks for atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD), defined as coronary death or nonfatal myocardial infarction, or fatal or nonfatal stroke, based on the Pooled Cohort Equations and the work of Lloyd-Jones, et al., respectively. The information required to estimate ASCVD risk includes age, sex, race, total cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, systolic blood pressure, blood pressure lowering medication use, diabetes status, and smoking status (http://my.americanheart.org/professional/StatementsGuidelines/PreventionGuidelines/Prevention-Guidelines_UCM_457698_SubHomePage.jsp).

Features:

Convenient single-screen calculator interface
US or SI units for cholesterol
10-year and lifetime ASCVD risk calculations
Native iOS 7 interface
Takes less than 15 seconds to enter clinical data

GAD-7 General Anxiety Scale [Free App]

Evaluate anxiety symptoms using the most common and validated scale – based on diagnostic criteria described in DSM-IV.

The GAD-7 is a brief measure of symptoms of anxiety, based on diagnostic criteria described in DSM-IV. It consists of seven questions and is calculated by assigning scores of 0, 1, 2, and 3, to the response categories of “not at all”, “several days”, “more than half the days,” and “nearly every day,” respectively. GAD-7 total score for the seven items ranges from 0 to 21. Scores of 5, 10, and 15 represent cutpoints for mild, moderate, and severe anxiety, respectively.

Though designed primarily as a screening and severity measure for generalized anxiety disorder, the GAD-7 also has moderately good operating characteristics for three other common anxiety disorders – panic disorder, social anxiety disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder. When screening for anxiety disorders, a recommended cutpoint for further evaluation is a score of 10 or greater.

ADULT ADHD Screener [Free App]

“Have you documented your use of the ADHD DSM-IV criteria when making a diagnosis of Adult ADHD?”

The Adult ADHD Self-Report Scale (ASRS v1.1) and scoring system were developed in conjunction with the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Workgroup on Adult ADHD.

As a healthcare professional, you can use the ASRS v1.1 as a tool to help screen for adult ADHD patients. Insights gained through this screening may suggest the need for a more in-depth clinician interview. The questions in the ASRS v1.1 are consistent with DSM-IV criteria and address the manifestations of ADHD symptoms in adults. Content of the questionnaire also reflects the importance that DSM-IV places on symptoms, impairments, and history for a correct diagnosis.

The screener takes less than 5 minutes to complete and can provide supplemental information that is critical to the diagnostic process.

“Because of its ease of use, short time to administer, high sensitivity, and moderate specificity, the ASRS-V1.1 is an effective adult ADHD screening to guide further evaluations for ADHD.” (J Am Board Fam Med 2012;25:847–853.)

MESA Arterial Age From Coronary Calcium Score [FREE APP]

  

Convert Coronary Artery Calcium Score (CAC) to Arterial Age.

Arterial age provides a convenient transformation of coronary artery calcium (CAC) from Agatston units to age units, to a scale more easily appreciated by both patients and treating physicians. The arterial age for a participant is the age at which the estimated CHD risk (modeled as a function of age) is the same as that for the observed CAC score. Arterial age is then the risk-equivalent of coronary artery calcium. This measure can be considered a more easily understandable version of the CAC score (e.g. you are 55 years old, but your arteries are more consistent with an arterial age of 65 years).

This tool will calculate an estimated arterial age (and 95% confidence interval) given a CAC score input by the user.
