Medical guidelines and protocols are becoming increasingly complex and therefore hard for doctors to know in detail. Summaries, plastic pocketcards etc. only help a bit. It is time for a completely new medium for guidelines: interactive apps. The app guides the doctor through a complex guideline by using entered data and provides this "decision support" based on the latest scientific resources. The Dutch Association of Gastro-enterologists (NVMDL) has decided to embrace this method and supply every gastro-enterologist with her latest guideline on coloscopic surveillance in this form.
