New Phone App to Facilitate HIV Screening, Counseling, and Linkage to Care
Date:4/18/2013

enabled app will make it even easier for them to connect their patients with high-quality care quickly and efficiently. The app also enables clinicians to print or email referral information for their patients, helping to ensure patients will seek the treatment they need."

SCALE (Screening – Counseling – Linkage – Education) HIV was launched in 2011 to address key practice and knowledge gaps in HIV screening, counseling, linkage to care, and adherence to clinical guidelines among primary care clinicians. The program consists of a series of live symposia, webcasts and podcasts, and a Virtual Clinic where patients can be followed online (www.scalehiv.org).

"It is important to find effective and efficient ways to educate clinicians about HIV screening guidelines and to help them connect their patients to appropriate care," said Dean Beals , President and CEO of DKBmed, LLC. "Tools such as the SCALE HIV app go a long way to achieve those goals. The sooner we can start HIV treatment in the course of the infection, the better a patient's outcome is likely to be."

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend routine HIV testing for everyone between the ages of 13 and 64, but many healthcare professionals lack the tools to follow these guidelines. The CDC recently reports that youths ages 13 – 24 account for 25 percent of new HIV cases, but fewer than a third of this age group has been tested for the virus. Clinician inexperience or lack of training also means that many HIV-positive patients are not counseled effectively, if at all. Moreover, linkage to care for HIV-positive individuals is not optimal, especially among minorities and women.

SCALE HIV is supported by an educational grant from Bristol-Myers Squibb.
