CHICAGO, June 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The Physician-Patient Alliance for Health & Safety (PPAHS) has released a new interview with Mari Miceli, a nurse and the creator of patient safety smartphone app, PatientAider.
The app, available on iOS and Android, is a tool designed to help patients, families and their advocates while in hospital educate themselves about patient safety. Says Ms. Miceli on the app's design:
"It's a resource and it's for patients families and friends in the hospital. It has communication strategies to help patients and families stand up for themselves, and also explains medical language to provide patient safety information and then it has patient stories in it to help explain why the education is so important."
"This interview provides an interesting perspective on patient safety," says Michael Wong, JD (founder & executive director of PPAHS), "PatientAider opens up new dialogue on how new technologies, like smartphone apps, could be employed to keep patients safe."
The full interview is available on the PPAHS blog. Additional interview and multimedia content can be accessed on PPAHS' YouTube channel.
