OB Patient Tracker
By Gregory P. Moore, MD
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
This program is designed to help the busy Obstetrician (or other Women's Healthcare Provider) keep track of his or her OB Patient List. This app was written by a practicing OB/Gyn!
The program will allow you to keep a list of all your OB patients sorted by name or Estimated Gestational Age (EGA). Each patient is color-coded by trimester of pregnancy with easy-to-see indicators for patients who are Due, Impending or Post Dates.
Every patient file will store each of 4 dating criteria including: Last Menstrual Period (LMP), Conception Date (CD), Ultrasound/Gestational Age (US) and Estimated Date of Confinement (EDC). The selected final dating criteria is displayed. Gravidy and Parity as well as notes on each patient are also stored. The due date calculator included will even allow "what if" calculations based on future or past dates.
An Estimated Fetal Weight Table (EFW) is also included to display a growth percentiles by gestational age.
A quick Due Date Calculator for on-the-fly calculations is included for
calculations when cross covering patients (see my program DueDateCalc, also for sale in the AppStore!).
Overall Statistics on your patient list is a finger click away: displaying how many patients are due or are impending or post dates. The number of patients by trimester is presented as well as number of patients due by month.
A bonus weight converter is included as well to help you calculate pounds/ounces from grams or vice-versa.
This version includes a utility for backing up your data file to your PC or Mac.
In order to comply with HIPPA, I strongly encourage you to set a PIN on your phone to be required immediately upon turning on your phone!
On your iPhone go to Settings -> General -> Passcode Lock --> Require Passcode --> Immediately. No one without your code can access anything on your iPhone including your patient list or any other sensitive data you might have stored.
REMEMBER: UPGRADES ARE ALWAYS FREE!
What's New in Version 1.12
- Bug when adding a new patient when user puts in anything > G0 P0.
- Bug for spinner wheels (G's & Ps) where some numbers are missing.
- Scrolling of Patient List table to top whenever sort method changes.
Good application, has great potential
Useful. As other users commented, it would be great to have a lab section as entering under notes is cumbersome. It would also be immensely helpful to be able to e-mail or output individual or batched patient data such that a hard copy of the OB list with relevant issues could be printed out for easier reference or signout for call. Of course, what would be most phenomenal would be a way to input/output the data from prenatal visits as a surrogate EMR for pregnant patients, but I imagine that would require an inordinate amount of coding & memory.
This is a unique product for tracking obstetrical patients. There are several features that would be helpful: a way to designate the physician if there are several in a practice who share call, also a way to designate those who have delivered without having to delete them. Also, a desktop module that would allow data entry from computer. Would also like to see a version for BlackBerry Storm.
Never updated as promised
I used to love this app, but now I am just annoyed. It does give me a list of my patients, but I could do that just as easily in Notepad, which is what I did before I got this app. Since there is no way to mark a patient as delivered, the program now is adding last years patients to this years patients and my stats, which I was really looking forward to using, are completely messed up. This guy has been promising updates, and they never come. Save your $15 bucks and just keep a patient list in Word or Notepad. Obviously, this guy has no plans on fixing this program so that it is usable.
