Cell Phones: A Gateway to Clinical Guidelines

Technology is transforming healthcare delivery around the world, and has the potential to transform healthcare training too.
PCI has been developing a blend of technology-enhanced learning methods. These enable clinicians to update their knowledge regularly via content and interactive tests, refer quickly to the latest evidence-based guidelines, and discuss difficult cases with colleagues online.
We’re excited to share that our first web application for guidelines has reached the prototype testing stage. It provides PCI’s practical evidence-based Field Guides in electronic, responsive form, accessible on-line and off-line. Users can view them as mobile-friendly documents or as dynamic, interactive guides giving individualised advice.
The PCI team will be field testing these electronic Field Guides in India and Africa during October and November 2016, before embarking on further development and wider roll-out as part of our ‘clinical update’ subscription service.
We look forward to sharing more news on this programme of work as it develops in the coming months.
