Our Work


Partnering with King’s College London & Guy’s & St Thomas’ Hospital on the development of a Class I medical device app designed to help reduce the risk of spontaneous preterm birth.


The Objective

The key objective of the QUiPP project was to create a medical calculator app which would help doctors evaluate the impact of triaging women at risk of spontaneous preterm birth (sPTB).

This clinical tool was created for the Woman’s Health Academic Centre, Kings College London and is based on a study of over 1000 women in conjunction with Guy’s & St. Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust.


Developing the app software dev plan aligned to IEC 62304 and preparing documentation for the ‘Technical File’.

UI Design

Creating a simple but effective UI aimed at healthcare professionals.


Building a robust app architecture and integrating the algorithm to enable the app to perform the medical calculation.

App Store

Submitting the app and its associated assets to the app stores.

Our Solution

The solution involved the design and development of the following key assets:

Medical Calculator

The university’s predictive algorithm was refactored into the main engine of the QUiPP app to create a medical calculator that looks at different measures that can affect how likely it is for a woman to give birth early: quantitative fetal fibronectin (fFn), cervical length, and whether a woman has previously had a premature birth.

MDR Compliance

Working closely with the Medical Physics Department at Guy’s & St Thomas’ Hospital we also took the medical device app through the CE marking process by producing the necessary paperwork and technical file that was required to support the app’s application for CE marking. This means that QUiPP is classified as software as a medical device (SaMD) and registered with the MHRA as a Class I device.

Web Based Version

We also developed a web based version of the QuiPP application: https://quipp.org/

Award Winning

The QUiPP app has won two prizes:- 1st prize in the Health Innovation Award King’s College London Lion’s Den Challenge - 1st prize in the Health Service Journal Awards in the category ‘The use of Information Technology to drive value in clinical services’

What our client said...

“The development of an innovative QUiPP mobile App has been a highly complex project. Genetic Digital ensured they fully understood the brief and produced a great platform, whilst navigating the compliance requirements of the healthcare sector.”

Their assistance with navigating the allied NHS, University and Government/EU policy and QUiPP that we built for King’s College / Guy’s and St Thomas’ has made it on to the #HealthTech Awards Shortlist for ‘Best App’”
