Sybarrite - Guideline paradigm shift not app problem
I am using the new app and was reticent because of the negative reviews but it works well! It is totally different than before but considering the change in guidelines it couldn’t have been the same plug and play. Agree that it’s stupidly expensive but it’s worth the money to keep my practice current.
RBeardsley - Not user friendly
The previous version was far more intuitive. When you try to start entering in your most recent results and where to go from there, it becomes unclear if it is wanting you to collect and enter in cytology and HPV status from AFTER your last test (eg colpo biopsy or LEEP) or if you are entering in cytology and HPV from BEFORE your last test. Then, if what you have done in the past or what you have been given (such as a new patient you’re trying to catch up on) doesn’t match up with the algorithm order, it just doesn’t even give you any recommendations. I feel like I’m going to have to know the guidelines so thoroughly in order to even use the app that I won’t even need it by then!
SLOPeeDee - Chock full of information
This new app will take time to get used to. It is definitely not as intuitive as the original. My first attempts to figure out where to jump in for a complex patient were completely frustrating. But with some guidance from the ASCCP listserv folks ( some of whom developed the app) it was easier. Apparently ASCCP is going to offer some educational sessions to help with using the app. I recommend it but don’t expect to “get it” on the first try. Since the new guidelines are so “dense” not surprising the new app is too
Alexmac08 - Can be a little confusing
Not as bad as the other review suggests but can be confusing if you’re not starting from square 1. The app was redesigned to reflect the updated guidelines for screening and management. The major thing this app is missing that was present in the old version was the “next steps” section where you could continue to enter results and it would take you down the appropriate pathway. If this feature is implemented then this app would be great!
DrEM1982 - Not user friendly
I loved the old app! It was extremely user friendly, efficient, and always got me the info I needed. This new app is incredibly frustrating and often ends with “not enough information” or “use your clinical judgement.” I wish I had known so I wouldn’t have deleted the old version and paid the $9.99 for this one. I am part of a social network of thousands of women OB/Gyns that are feeling similarly to me. I am hoping this app will be revised, and fast, otherwise I will likely end up deleting it. It is a shame, because I used the old app several times a day.
Paddler95 - New version not intuitive
This app has great information. The old version was super easy to use. But this new version is confusing, not intuitive and I feel like even after spending a lot of time on the app, I can’t always find the information I’m looking for.
Wish they would go back to their older versions with step by step input from screen to screen. And I wish they would provide the references flow sheets from the guidelines in their results. Please improve!
Mark H Einstein - Simplified patient care
This app is a very user friendly medical app that includes all of the updates management guidelines so I can better manage my patients. It includes prior risk thresholds that predict current and future risk. Like the last app this one takes some wine to get used to, but once you do, it makes shared decision making very efficient.
Noahagoldman - Good info for patients/chart
I have found the app to be easy to use and, while it has not changed how I would manage the patient, the percentage risk numbers allow for a better discussion with the patient and better data when documenting decision making.
Overall it is worthwhile.
Rdajao - great app, a notification on the old app would have been good!
I use this app daily. i’m glad to see that there are now ways to input previous results. it would be a very good idea to send a notification to all the previous app users that they need to update to this new one.
Alamosa mom - Handy Concise Tool
Great to have instant access to help with quality patient care. Still trying to learn the new app but 5 stars.
J.reviews - Frustrating.
I hope I am missing something. I wish this app was as integrated as the previous one- this one seems to require a person have both this app for the latest guidelines, and the previous one to have the actual recommendations. Which makes sense from a monetary stand point since the last app was not updated and instead a new app was made- but frustrating from a clinician POV.
CNM Katie - Not user friendly
Confusing, challenging to use especially when trying to quickly look something up between patients. I do like that you can put in their previous results. VERY unhappy to pay $9.99 AGAIN. Should have been an included upgrade in previous app. Still remains most expensive app I’ve ever downloaded, now I'll just consider it $20 not just $10.
Jejomupi - Easier than looking at the most complex spreadsheets ever
But Why not offer as an update to the old app!!!! This was a major selling point last time- yes it’s $10 but at least you’ll stay updated when the guidelines change 🤦🏼♀️
Confused Gynecologist - Horrible app
This app is BEYOND confusing and information is missing. I am trying to put in a CIN3 for the colpo and there is not an option to pick CIN3. I am jumping all over the place trying different scenarios and I am so confused. To have to repurchase this app (because I could not upgrade the old one) for it to be subpar is inappropriate and DANGEROUS! You all need to fix this ASAP. Or I will just have to use my “clinical judgement” as the told me for CIN2 on a colpo.
Obgyn421 - $$
The old version was already one of the most expensive basic medical apps on the market, and to come out with an entirely new one, for another $9.99, rather than just updating the old one is really praying of residents with limited financial resources who are just trying to learn and provide good care. It is a great app and helpful, but to have had to pay for it twice in residency leaves a very sour taste in my mouth.
Customer037393 - Poor update
This app is confusing and difficult to use. For example, I put in a normal result for a 25 year old with a normal history. Even then, the routine follow up was hard to see. In fact, just try to find the routine screening guidelines. I think that this app was tested on people with prior knowledge. It is going to confuse new practitioners. ACSSP - get your money back from the programmers - this app is not worth $10!
Becca237 - There should be a video on how to use the app
This app is very challenging to use. I am struggling with being able to easily insert the appropriate information to get the recommendations such as: abnormal pap, colp, abnormal pap—get recommendation. I miss the old App which was straightforward and you didn’t have to back log vs move forward.
NP Cindy - Difficult to use
I have been using ASCCP app since it first came out. I loved the previous app. It was very user-friendly. This new app is SO confusing. It is so much more difficult then the previous app. I do not like it at all. I even watched the tutorial. Please consider revamping it. All of my co-workers agree.
Carabiner252 - Not as easy to navigate
The previous app was easier to navigate. I do appreciate the updated information, however. If they could combine the ease of the previous app with the information of the new app, this would be perfect.
RobK2011 - The new app is not as intuitive as the original
This app is not intuitive. I prefer the original style, especially since this one is a paid app.
UK/US - Not as good
This new app isn’t as user friendly or clear as the first. Better than nothing though.
SchultzeFamily - ASCCP has pooped this on us.
This set of guidelines and this application are likely the worst I have ever seen as a physician. In no way do these guidelines help us and it is hard to imagine that they improve care for our patients. The application is almost as bad as they the guidelines. I am unbelievably saddened by the loss of efficiency and stress these guidelines will cause
Merkp - So difficult to use
Not user friendly. Things need to be linked to each other. Still reference the old app because it’s so much easier to use and get to a final recommendation.
Devanshi73 - Needs improvement
This simply does not come the may s as centroid we see patients in. Half the time it is not helpful on making a course of action. Not user friendly
Flutterlash - Big disappointment
I was a big fan of the old app, but the new one is frustrating. Hard to use, not intuitive, poor graphics user interface.
Shagarwal - Review
Fairly difficult to navigate this app. Still nice to have the info.
Jen OBGYN - Don’t waste your money
The new app is not nearly as clear and concise as the original. I am of the impression that ASCCP now recommends 6 month f/u cytology after LEEP but do not see a way to access that recommendation after entering in my clinical scenario. This app needs work.
Praley - Confusing
I’ve used the old app for years- it was wonderful- and user friendly. Not sure why the society felt the need to change. The new app is cumbersome and confusing, not intuitive at all. Definitely needs more work.
Lsr0911 - Awful
This new app is terrible and quite frankly useless. Almost any “follow up after treatment situation” ends with “no data is available, use clinical judgement”. Even though the algorithm papers would give you a recommendation. I regret having deleted the old app!
Elizabeth212121 - Needs improvement
I loved the old app and how it guided one through the algorithms. This new app is much harder to use. It can be confusing to figure out the frequency to screen. I would love the new recommendations to be incorporated into the form of the old app.
1960tc - Old app was better
This “new & improved” version is not user friendly and very hard to use.
TSO/NP - OB/GYN Nurse Practtioner
When using app it does not clear, I would like a short cut to actual diagram pathways as before. Thank you
Massuavecita - Not intuitive
Not easy to use
As a point of care tool it is now useless. Which I had the older version and the old recommendations.
Doctor Triathlete - Missing scenario
In practice for 22 years and ASCCP member for longer...disappointed to pay this fee and find missing in the app the scenario of hpv negative with lack of adequate endocervical cells.
Charlotte doc - Ap
Ap is not as helpful as last version but prob related to the guidelines being harder to navigate
NSVD5180 - ASCCP
More difficult to use than the previous version.
C1233k - Terrible
This new app is terrible. The old version was so easy to use. This one is confusing and not helpful. Please return to the old format.
OhitsJo - Not user friendly
I preferred the setup of the previous app. This one is not user friendly at all, especially with post colposcopy recommendations.
Jesroo - Guidelines
Where are the current recommended guidelines ie: age of paps
Age to add HPV
How often do they need to be done?
Do we still go by old recommended screening?
J DS DS - New ASCCP app
Worse than the old app. Less intuitive
Nw52md - Downgrade
So much harder to use than the prior app! Significantly less user friendly. Very disappointed.
Sarflorn - Lacking
Lacking routine screening guidelines
SD MD - Review
This new app is terrible. The older version was better.
DoctorDiosa - DoctorD
Not user friendly
After multiple attempts to insert the same data 3 x
The result read: No recommendations
Would not purchase
Wish I could get my $9.99 back
MMORCAST - App
Not user friendly and difficult to insert scenarios eg 30 yo with 2 neg pap, but positive HPV (one genotyped 18). Colpo CIN 1. Could not get algorithm for plan
