    • DETECT App's Intended Use:

      The DETECT Screening Tool for PAH-SSc was funded and developed by Actelion Pharmaceuticals US, Inc., a Janssen Pharmaceutical Company. It is limited for use by healthcare specialists who treat patients with SSc, and who are familiar with PAH as a complication of SSc. It is not intended to replace the medical or professional judgment of healthcare providers. It does not provide professional advice and should not be considered a diagnosis. Healthcare professionals using the tool should exercise clinical judgment as to the information they provide to the patient based upon the tool.
