We've been very busy over the last couple months, bring dramatic improvements across the board to our suite of clinical decision support apps. Most of our apps have been rewritten entirely from the ground up over the last several months, to take advantage of the latest iOS technologies and lessons we've learned over the last several years. Some of our goals in this comprehensive round of updates include:
- iPad support
- iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 support
- Universal binaries containing iPad and iPhone versions
- Custom user interfaces designed to take fullest advantage of iPad's screen real estate
- More refined user interface and user experience
- More efficient use of app resources, resulting in smaller app sizes
- Unified design language and theming
The new 5.0 release of our Thoracic Differential Diagnoses app introduces a beautiful new interface for users on iPads, re-organized differential diagnosis lists, and over 10 new differential diagnosis lists. The image modules have also been updated so that lists can now display multiple sample images of an image finding - not just one! This release also introduces a "random" feature, helpful for a quick 30-second quiz whenever your fancy strikes.
The new 3.0 release of our Incidental Findings app introduces a clean, elegant - entirely redesigned - interface and a dramatic engine which builds a question list on the fly, arriving at a guidance statement in the fewest number of questions possible. The app also introduces several new sets of guidelines for incidental thyroid nodules, lymph nodes, splenic masses, and adnexal cysts.
The new 2.1 release of our Lung Screening app introduces a new question engine that helps users reach a Lung-RADS classification effortlessly and unambiguously. The lung nodule malignancy probability calculator built into this version also helps users quantify lung nodule risk.
