Prevent GBS App
CDC, in collaboration with our guidelines partner organizations, developed an app called "Prevent Group B Strep" to provide quick, timely access for obstetric and neonatal providers and deliver specific recommendations for specific patient scenarios. The simple interface delivers, through a series of yes/no questions, recommendations based on programmed algorithms underlying the current guidelines. The free application is optimized for smartphones and PDAs, and as a stand-alone native application for iOS and Android devices.
