This mobile application delivers healthcare providers an easy to use resource for predicting outcomes and VTE risk for bariatric surgery candidates. Predicted outcomes include projected weight loss, complication risk, and resolution of comorbidities for the most common bariatric surgical procedures. The VTE calculator provides risk-stratified treatment guidelines. The content was developed by the Michigan Bariatric Surgery Collaborative (MBSC), a Blue Cross Blue Shield/ Blue Care Network of Michigan sponsored consortium of bariatric surgeons and hospitals across the state of Michigan.
