A free downloadable App designed to help clinicians get things done in their hospital.

Not what to do but how to do it.

Bringing local know-how to clinicians' pockets.


Named in honour of Dr Ignaz Semmelweis, the handwashing pioneer.

Suitable for iOS (iPhone & iPad) and Android devices.

Aims to provide clinicians with key information on:

  • Trust guidelines and pathways
  • Common medical situations when on-call
  • Medical calculations
  • Antimicrobial prescribing
  • Teaching, contacts and support


How Does Ignaz Work?

Each Trust has administrators who have full control of their app content. Local authors can edit their section of the app only. The app users can only view the published content that has been approved. The app will only display the current content.


  • Local Administrators recruit local authors
  • Authors create the app content online
  • Authors select reviewers for peer-review


  • The system invites reviewers to comment on the content
  • Authors then review and accept or decline suggestions
  • Once the authors are satisfied, they mark their content for approval


  • Administrators perform final check and content is published to the app
  • Content becomes visable to the App user

Effective clinical governance has been central in the software design. The project board has been mindful that the app is not a medical textbook, but it is also far more than an electronic version of a paper resource. It is designed to provide up-to-date local knowledge with automatic version control.
