A new customizable iPad app is designed to help healthcare providers counsel and educate patients on their condition in an easily accessible and visual way.
The Digital Counseling iPad Solution by Cypress Digital Media includes a customizable app that can accomodate video and high-resolution images and charts in patient communications. It also includes an annotation tool so the provider can point out or highlight items of particular importance.
The company behind the product, Cypress Digital Media, says it requires virtually no training on the part of the healthcare provider, and can be distributed through the iTunes store.
"The application represents a huge step forward in patient education where it matters most — at the point of care," said John Ghashghai, Managing Partner at Cypress Digital Media. "We believe that this kind of application represents the future of patient counseling."
