Preventing GBS infection using a smartphone app

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has just released a smartphone app to help prevent infections with Group B Streptococcus by enabling obstetric and neonatal health professionals manage mothers and newborns according to the 2010 CDC guidelines. The app allows users to enter patient-specific criteria, and provides the user with specific guidance about management, including antibiotic therapy. This app was developed in collaboration with, and is endorsed by leading organizations such as the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.
