Co-Branded Comfort Talk App
This application helps patients prepare for their upcoming hospital appointment. We can customize the App with your hospital branding and specific information such as directions and preparation instructions. The App helps your departmental treatment team to familiarize with patient preferences for coping and relaxation before they arrive and optimizes the onsite patient experience.
The App uses the same techniques developed by doctors to help patients help themselves; the same system acclaimed internationally by major medical centers for its fast, natural, and safe relief of the stress and pain that can accompany medical tests and treatments. The Comfort Talk App provides fast relief when—and where—patients need it.
This App provides step-by-step directions to guide patients through their natural mental ability to block pain,reduce stress, and bolster self-confidence without the use of medication, either at home or on the go. Developed for the iPad and iPhone, with Android application pending, it is now available for take-along personal use.
