NEW YORK, April 18, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, in collaboration with the Institute for Johns Hopkins Nursing, the American Academy of HIV Medicine (AAHIVM), and DKBmed, LLC, has announced the creation of an application (app) that brings essential features of the SCALE HIV™ program to iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch devices.  The app can be found at  www.dkbmed.com/scale. The goal of the app is to enhance the ability of healthcare professionals to screen their patients with HIV infection and to link those with positive test results to appropriate counseling and treatment. A key component of the app is direct access to the AAHIVM ReferralLink database.
