We need your help.
We've come a long way with ePrognosis, our online and now mobile tool kit to estimate life expectancy in the elderly. To quickly review:
- Published systematic review of prognostic indices for older adults (JAMA link)
- Launched ePrognosis in January 2012.
- Over 1 million page views since launch, most from mobile devices
- Launched mobile-friendly responsive web-design version of ePrognosis this summer (2013). Responsive web design allows you to access ePrognosis from a web browser on any size device - a PC, laptop, tablet, or phone. The website will automatically resize the browser window and the information in the window for the size of screen you are using.
- ePrognosis users said the "bubbleview" home page was too complicated. They just wanted to be quickly pointed to the best index for the patient in front of them. We re-designed the landing page to be much simpler, asking easy questions that quickly take users to the highest quality index for the clinical situation at hand (e.g. a nursing home patient with dementia is taken immediatly to Susan Mitchell's index).
- We launched ePrognosis: Cancer Screening - the app for iPhones and iPads - this week. See more about the app in this post here. Download the app here.
With generous support from the John A Hartford Foundation, we are having a conference in January, 2014 to discuss Next Steps for ePrognosis. We are open to the idea of inviting and funding a particularly enthusiastic and helpful user or users to join our conference in San Francisco.
