QUiPP App is a tool for predicting spontaneous preterm birth in symptomatic women and high-risk asymptomatic women
The QUiPP App is a clinical decision-making tool that can help clinicians determine the risk of preterm birth in women with symptoms of threatened preterm labor as well as asymptomatic high-risk women.
The App was created by King's College London in conjunction with Guy’s and St Thomas’ Charity, the National Institute for Health Research and Tommy’s, and is designed for use in two clinical settings: the first focused on asymptomatic women deemed to be at high risk for preterm birth and the second in women showing symptoms of early labor suggestive of abnormal or premature uterine activity.
The updated version of the App, QUiPP App v.2, calculates the risk of preterm birth based on a woman’s individual risk factors, such as previous preterm birth, late miscarriage or symptoms, along with clinical test results that help to predict preterm birth (i.e. fetal fibronectin tests and cervical length measurements). The App then produces a simple individual % risk score.
Read more about the App on the QUiPP website and in the recent press release. Read the two papers, published in Ultrasound in Obstetrics and Gynecology, that show how the App algorithms were developed and tested for use in asymptomatic high-risk women and in women with symptoms of threatened preterm labor.
