RESOURCE: Platform helps patients understand doctors’ explanations | Springwise

“According to statistics from Jiff, the company behind the application, some 80 percent of the information health professionals give to patients is forgotten once the appointment is over, and people also remember 50 percent of their doctor’s medical talk incorrectly. The app is a presentation tool which enables doctors to make clear the important data they dispense to their patients. During the explanation, medical staff can mark and draw onto images to underline the points they are making. Those annotations, along with the audio of the conversation are recorded and made available to the patient as a digital file to watch back later on. All the videos are HIPAA-compliant, meaning that sensitive patient data is kept secure.”
