iPhone app helps to ID adverse events

The National Cancer Institute's Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events handbook has been turned into a free app. The book lists adverse events that may occur in clinical trials.

The biomedical informatics group at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia created the tool, which lets iPhone- or iPod-equipped doctors and nurses leave the 200-page reference on the shelf when they go on rounds.

A local press report says that the classifications used in the handbook originated in oncology but have broader application in clinical trials for other conditions. Developers say that in addition to boosting efficiency, the app has potential for standardizing care delivery.
