The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality designed the Electronic Preventive Services Selector (ePSS) app to help primary care doctors identify preventive services for their patients. It's available on multiple platforms, including Android, iPhone, Blackberry and iPad. The app can be used to find U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommendations for patients based on specific characteristics, such as age, sex and selected behavioral risk factors. The app lets users bookmark recommendations or topics for later viewing, and there's a feature called ePSS Recommendations RX, which lets users print or email patient-specific customized recommendations. The app is available for download from iTunes.
