IPRO, a national organization providing a full spectrum of healthcare assessment and improvement services, has been awarded special federal funding to promote the use of a surgical management tool it recently converted from a paper-based format to a mobile application. The free, smart phone application and online tool developed by an IPRO-led coalition enables clinicians to easily determine whether, when, and how to stop and restart the use of warfarin and oral anticoagulants during elective surgery and other invasive procedures. Intuitively organized, the Management of Anticoagulation in the Peri-Procedural Period, or MAPPP app, provides individualized patient guidance for management of anticoagulant medications based on patient thrombosis (blood clot) risk and specific procedural bleeding risk.
