SMART app receives clinician praise

The SMART team is working on creating a blood pressure centiles SMART app for initial deployment at Children’s Hospital, Boston.  There aren’t standard cutoffs for normal pediatric blood pressures.  For kids, the normal blood pressure depends upon height and gender.  Unfortunately, looking up these normal blood pressures is pretty time consuming.  Thus, we’re working with a great, transdisciplinary group of docs at Children’s to create an app that will do the calculating for them and give them more time with their patients.  One of those docs is cardiologist Justin Zachariah, M.D., M.P.H.  He said, “What you have already created is definitely a quantum leap forward compared to where we are now.”  Through SMART, we’ll be able to make this app available to other SMART-enabled systems.
