Smart phone app developed for PICC patients

To reach this goal we develop the mobile application “PICC App” to provide the necessary information for all involved persons in the outpatient setting” Nüssli et al (2016).

Abstract:

Peripherally inserted central venous catheters (PICCs) are of growing interest because they allow intravenous therapies up to several months. The appropriate management of the PICCs is crucial to minimize complications and largely depends on the right information for everyone who cares for the patient.

To reach this goal we develop the mobile application “PICC App” to provide the necessary information for all involved persons in the outpatient setting. We expect to be able to report about the PICC App and the results of the usability evaluation with pilot users.
