avoMD, a next-gen clinical guidelines and pathways platform, announces today the launch for their new app avoMD Preoperative Evaluation, now available on the App Store and on Google Play.

avoMD Preop provides quick, interactive, and educational guidance to help clinicians evaluate and prepare adult patients for noncardiac surgery. The app is based on the 2014 ACC/AHA Perioperative Guidelines and has been developed in conjunction with Dr. Steven Cohn, a leading expert in Perioperative Medicine.

avoMD Preop gives detailed explanations and recommendations for comorbidities by utilizing links to evidence-based references and best practices. Along with this, the app incorporates patient medications, interactive medical calculators (like RCRI, MICA, ACS-SRC, DASI), and other information and tools to help clinicians assess the risk of surgery.

Dr. Cohn is currently Professor Emeritus at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, having served as the Medical Director of the UHealth Preoperative Assessment Center (UPAC) at the University of Miami Hospital and Director of the Medical Consultation Service at Jackson Memorial Hospital.

"This app will be helpful to medical residents, ARNPs and PAs, and hospitalists new to the perioperative setting. It is accessible at all points in the workflow of perioperative care, allowing for improved use of evidence-based medicine."
