As an Emergency Medicine Physician, I saw the need to create a program that would help patients screen for depression. Sad Scale is created to help screen for depression in the General Population,
PostPartum Depression and Geriatric depression. The application has 5
screening test and it tracks your scores and graphs your results. The
user then can email their Primary care doctor, OB/Gyn doctor or health
care provider. The test can be taken multiple times and the user can
track for depression. All this from your IPhone! It also takes you to
different online resources for additional help.
is an IPhone application to help your health care provider follow your
care. It is not a substitute for seeing a health care provider. This
application contains to self screening test. The Zung depression test,
Geriatric Depression scale and the Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale are in this application. The application is easy to use and will store your scores on your IPhone.
Currently we added two children scales. CES-DC & KADS. These
applications will give you a graph on your progress and will also allow
you to email your health care provider the results of the test.

us. We also want to hear any stories about how this app has helped you
or a love one. Please email us your name and story, we will not publish this information. We are interested in hearing from you.
We currently have a feature where you can email your physician or health care provider.

gmail login. The program will not allow you to use alternative login

it is important to remember that if you are at work or a place that

We are currently adding another depression scale to this product. It will be a free update for 1.1. We will be changing the screen shots to show the Geriatric Depression scale.
We have added a Mood bar, Note pad. Below is a sample of the update.
The mood bar will track both Mood & Energy allow the user to email
their PCP. The Notepad will also allow the user to track how they feel
