The Pt-Global App©
On 12 June 2014 the PG-SGA© has entered the digital world and is now available in the app stores as the Pt-Global app©.
Easy and systematic screening and assessment
The Pt-Global app© facilitates all health care professionals (e.g., dietitians, nurses, doctors and others) in performing an easy and systematic screening for nutritional risk, for nutritional assessment, for interventional triageing, and for nutritional monitoring during and after intervention.
Consistent scoring and use of validated multilingual translations
The Pt-Global app© facilitates consistent scoring and use of validated multilingual translations of the PG-SGA© that will facilitate a significantly broader utilization for the paper-based version of the PG-SGA© currently used in research and clinical practice settings.
The Pt-Global app© currently targets professional use, with the intent that the patient can complete the patient component independently in the clinical or research setting.
Version 1.1 includes the English, Dutch and Portuguese language. In the future, as we further develop the app and increase the available languages, we aim to make the patient part of the app downloadable for the patient, offering the opportunity to be completed independently by the patient.
The Pt-Global app© has been designed for use on a tablet or a large screen smartphone. The Pt-Global app© is currently supported by the three major platforms: iOS, Android and Windows Phone for tablet or large screen smartphone. From 12 June 2014, you can purchase the Pt-Global app© in the app stores below.
The Pt-Global Webtool©
It is also possible to use the Pt-Global app© in your webbrowser! For only €3 per month or €25,- per year you get an automatic subscription which can be terminated any time. For €43,- you get unlimited use. Go to the web-based version where you can profit from the advantages of the digital PG-SGA©.
Dr. Faith Ottery, the Hanze University of Applied Sciences and the Dept. of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery of the University Medical Center Groningen perform scientific research on the PG-SGA© and the Pt-Global app with the Pt-Global Research Consortium. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: the efficacy and efficiency of the Pt-Global app© on the health care process and the validity of the PG-SGA© in populations with chronic diseases and (frail) older people. Are you interested to perform research on the PG-SGA© and/or Pt-Global app©? Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or by the contact form.
