Indian Doctors Develop Mobile App to Treat Gastro Intestinal, Liver Emergencies

Dr. Usha Dutta, along with few other doctors of the Gastrointestinal Department of the PGI, has developed 'GI and liver emergencies' — a mobile application. It can be accessed free of cost through the android platform and is updated by the Indian Society of Gastroenterology. The app can give you latest information about 15 gastrointestinal diseases.

"The app provides latest information about treatment and diagnosis of 15 GI diseases. It also provides access to latest research papers available, which can help doctors choose the best treatment. In addition, the app has complete guidelines for GI diseases," said Dr. Dutta.
