Prevent Group B Strep App for Obstetric Providers
Use the “Prevent Group B Strep” app to achieve better implementation of evidence-based guidelines to prevent cases of GBS disease.
With this app, you can:
- Answer questions about your obstetric patient
- Receive specific patient management guidance based on the scenario you have entered
- Obtain appropriate antibiotic regimens for obstetric patients requiring intrapartum prophylaxis
Generates customized recommendations
“Prevent Group B Strep” is a standalone application that provides patient-specific and scenario-specific guidance consistent with the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) 2019 Committee Opinion: Prevention of Group B Streptococcal Early-Onset Disease in Newborns. The app generates customized recommendations based on user input of patient characteristics.
The app was developed in collaboration with and endorsed by ACOG and the American College of Nurse-Midwives. Intended users include those providing obstetric care (e.g., obstetricians, nurse-midwives, family practitioners).
If you do not have a device that supports the app, you can access a web version when connected to the internet through a mobile device or computer. If you use the web version of “Prevent Group B Strep,” we recommend adjusting the screen size to look like a smartphone for a better user experience.
User feedback is encouraged. If you have suggestions for improving the app, please e-mail RDB@cdc.gov.
