NASPGHAN and the NSPGHAN Foundation, in collaboration with The Crohn´s & Colitis Foundation Launch New Mobile App improve the Process of IBD Transition

 

 

Doc4me, a new smartphone application to make IBD transition easier and smarter, is now available for your patients and families. 

Doc4me was strategically developed for adolescents and young adults to assist them in transitioning from pediatric to adult centered care for IBD.

Doc4me helps find physicians to transition to based on the patients’ locale or designated area and other parameters. It provides resources on what patients need to know and do prior to their appointment with their new doctor.  In addition, there is a transition checklist to help them attain the necessary skills to transition well.  Moreover, Doc4me provides information about medications, nutrition and living with IBD.

 

Adult GI practitioners, who are listed in the app, represent all 50 states in the US. This compilation includes adult IBD doctors who were identified and recommended by NASPGHAN members, adult IBD doctors who self-identified themselves as providing care to transitioning youth with IBD, and adult IBD doctors “liked” by transitioning IBD patients.  The compilation is ongoing and live which means that it will be added to and edited even after the launch of the app.

Please help us promote the app to your patients, families and colleagues.

 

We would like to expand our database of adult providers internationally. If you would like to become part of our list of transition physicians , please complete this information form. If you know a physician who should become part of our listings, please send them this link.
