Chock full of information
This new app will take time to get used to. It is definitely not as intuitive as the original. My first attempts to figure out where to jump in for a complex patient were completely frustrating. But with some guidance from the ASCCP listserv folks ( some of whom developed the app) it was easier. Apparently ASCCP is going to offer some educational sessions to help with using the app. I recommend it but don’t expect to “get it” on the first try. Since the new guidelines are so “dense” not surprising the new app is too

Can be a little confusing
Not as bad as the other review suggests but can be confusing if you’re not starting from square 1. The app was redesigned to reflect the updated guidelines for screening and management. The major thing this app is missing that was present in the old version was the “next steps” section where you could continue to enter results and it would take you down the appropriate pathway. If this feature is implemented then this app would be great!

Simplified patient care
This app is a very user friendly medical app that includes all of the updates management guidelines so I can better manage my patients. It includes prior risk thresholds that predict current and future risk. Like the last app this one takes some wine to get used to, but once you do, it makes shared decision making very efficient.
New 2019 ASCCP Risk-Based Management Consensus Guidelines for abnormal cervical cancer screening tests and cancer precursors provide new recommendations.
ASCCP is pleased to offer this app to streamline navigation of the ASCCP Risk-Based Management Consensus Guidelines for abnormal cervical cancer screening tests and cancer precursors. The guidelines articles, as published in the Journal of Lower Genital Tract Disease, as well as the comprehensive risk estimates, can be accessed through https://www.asccp.org/guidelines. These evidence-based management guidelines, initially developed in 2019, came together through a consensus process of 19 organizations. The updated management guidelines aim to: • Allow for a more complete and precise estimation of risk • Provide more appropriate intervention for high-risk individuals (detect and treat more precancer) • Recommend less intervention for low-risk individuals (decrease testing and treatment that won’t prevent cancer and may cause reproductive harm) • Allow for the future addition of new risk modifiers and screening and management technologies
