The fast, free app for clinicians to track patients with high blood pressure.
A simple tracking system, together with a simple and effective hypertension treatment protocol, will help clinicians to save patients' lives. The Simple app is a purpose-built tracking tool: Quickly create a longitudinal record of your patients' blood pressures and hypertension medications.
We intentionally keep Simple really simple and focused so a healthcare worker can register a patient and record his or her BP in under 20 seconds.
We have honed the patient search, so a healthcare worker can choose the right patient confidently and quickly. The patient search handles misspellings and phonetic look-up.
A patient's BP history is displayed in a way that nurses and doctors can use in a busy care environment. We will add graphing of BPs soon.
It's very important for patients to return to the clinic for treatment on a regular schedule. Scheduling follow-ups is easy and the patient will receive text message reminders to return to care.
If a patient misses their follow-up visit, Simple will add them to an easy-to-use overdue list. Any staff member can call the patient and Simple hides their phone number from the patient.
The app works great in places with unreliable connectivity and where a healthcare worker may be offline for days at a time.
Simple has been designed to work on either personal phones or on clinic-owned devices. The app has a small footprint, under 10MB, and is light on data usage.
This project is supported by Resolve to Save Lives, an initiative of the not-for-profit Vital Strategies, which enables us to provide this software completely free of cost with no strings attached. This project will always be open source (MIT license) — free and open to contributions from everyone.
Simple is truly free to use.
Use the code in any way.
It will never cost money.
