The National Comprehensive Cancer Network has launched a free app in versions for both the iPhone and Android, providing registered users of NCCN.org mobile access to the NCCN Guidelines.
“Physicians and other health care professionals are adopting mobile eHealth technology at an accelerating rate, and we are pleased to be able to offer providers improved access to the critical information found in the NCCN Guidelines at or near the point of patient care or anywhere through these new mobile applications,” said NCCN CEO William T. McGivney, PhD
The applications can be downloaded via the iTunes app store and Android Market and can be found by searching for “NCCN.”
The app provides access to the complete library of NCCN Guidelines, which cover treatment for 97% of all patients with cancer, the organization says.
Further information is available at NCCN.org/mobile.
