Enormous strides are being made in the care of patients with HBV, including the development of new medications.
Yet clinical challenges remain:
Who should be screened?
How do we link patients who test positive to the care they need?
SCALE HBV was developed by DKBmed to familiarize general practitioners and clinicians with the latest CDC HBV screening and counseling guidelines and to help them link their patients to appropriate care promptly.
A key component of the app provides clinicians with an easy way to link patients with local HBV specialists based on patients zip code, city or state.
Studies have shown that many patients delay care following an HBV diagnosis and that these delays are often associated with worse long-term outcomes. We hope that by offering clinician-customized, point-of-care access to HBV specialists, they will be able quickly refer their patients to care which can lead to better outcomes.
