ORLANDO, Fla., Aug. 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- EASE Applications, has developed a one-of-a-kind mobile messaging application shown to reduce anxiety in 98% of families during a hospital experience. Available in both the Google Play and iTunes App Store, the app allows hospital clinicians to send real-time updates to family members throughout their medical care at a hospital. The HIPAA compliant medical messaging app sends secure text, photo and video updates using 256-bit encryption. Messages disappear after 60 seconds of viewing. The application is provided free of charge by the medical provider to both family and friends.
The application is currently being used by twenty two hospitals across the United States. The app enables healthcare providers to send customized updates from the operating room, NICU, ICU and medical floor. In app surveying also allows the hospital to measure satisfaction in real-time. "By removing the vail and providing transparency, you are removing doubt from families," said Cary D'ortona, Chief Operating Officer at Arnold Palmer Medical Center.
