New 2019 ASCCP Risk-Based Management Consensus Guidelines for abnormal cervical cancer screening tests and cancer precursors provide new recommendations.
ASCCP is pleased to offer this app to streamline navigation of the ASCCP Risk-Based Management Consensus Guidelines for abnormal cervical cancer screening tests and cancer precursors. The guidelines articles, as published in the Journal of Lower Genital Tract Disease, as well as the comprehensive risk estimates, can be accessed through https://www.asccp.org/guidelines.
These evidence-based management guidelines, initially developed in 2019, came together through a consensus process of 19 organizations. The updated management guidelines aim to:
• Allow for a more complete and precise estimation of risk
• Provide more appropriate intervention for high-risk individuals (detect and treat more precancer)
• Recommend less intervention for low-risk individuals (decrease testing and treatment that won’t prevent cancer and may cause reproductive harm)
• Allow for the future addition of new risk modifiers and screening and management technologies
See https://www.asccp.org/UserGuide for tips on using the app.
ASCCP Management Guidelines Positive Reviews
Chock full of informationThis 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.Version: 1.0
Simplified patient careThis 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..Version: 1.0
New version not intuitiveThis 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!.Version: 1.1
Can be a little confusingNot 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!.Version: 1.0
Good info for patients/chartI 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..Version: 1.0
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..Version: 1.1
Guideline paradigm shift not app problemI 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..Version: 1.0
ApAp is not as helpful as last version but prob related to the guidelines being harder to navigate.Version: 1.2
Great app!I really appreciate this app. I’m a nurse and I work in a pap follow-up department so I use this every day and it’s incredibly helpful. My co-workers and I noticed one thing after the recent update, though: y’all spelled “colposcopy” wrong on the “Evaluation of a colposcopy biopsy” button. I mean, come on guys, this is a professional medical organization — use spell check..Version: 1.5
Not as easy to navigateThe 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..Version: 1.2
Easier than looking at the most complex spreadsheets everBut 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 🤦🏼♀️.Version: 1.0
Figures for Algorithim Are GoneThe iPhone app no longer shows the figures for the algorithm, so you don’t have it to compare to the recommended testing when the app doesn’t spit out a good answer or the clinical presentation is complicated.Version: 1.3
OB/GYN Nurse PracttionerWhen using app it does not clear, I would like a short cut to actual diagram pathways as before. Thank you.Version: 1.1
The new app is not as intuitive as the originalThis app is not intuitive. I prefer the original style, especially since this one is a paid app..Version: 1.1
PhysicianApp is not that smooth; does not scroll on my iPhone well; was told there is portion also for DES exposure but not able to find that; a bit disappointed.Version: 1.3
Handy Concise ToolGreat to have instant access to help with quality patient care. Still trying to learn the new app but 5 stars..Version: 1.0
ReviewThis new app is terrible. The older version was better..Version: 1.1
I wish I had the old version backNew app is confusing to use compared to previous version.Version: 1.3
Not as goodThis new app isn’t as user friendly or clear as the first. Better than nothing though..Version: 1.2

ReviewFairly difficult to navigate this app. Still nice to have the info..Version: 1.2
