Doctot has produced the official GOLD COPD App in partnership with GOLD, the Global Initiative for Chronic Obstructive Lung Diseases.
The GOLD App provides the GOLD strategy for treating Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) in a user-friendly and easily navigable format with interactive tables and charts. The app also contains the GOLD sanctioned Combined Assessment of COPD scale, allowing the medical practitioner a highly efficient and easy-to-use tool to measure important functions of patients suffering from COPD. Incorporated in this score are the:
- COPD Assessment Test (CAT)
- mMRC scale
The assessment scale is presented in wizard format so the user can easily navigate through the interview components to record patient status.
The tool automatically generates the scale total and categorizes this score – based on the user input. An “Information” section is also provided with background details.
Functionality is also included for:
- PIN Protection for security purposes
- Preference Settings for the various assessments
- Shake-to-Reset Scale functionality
The generous contribution Prof. Andrew McIvor, McMaster University, BA, Canada in providing his expertise and knowledge on this project is recognised by Doctot and GOLD.
