1 in 5 Americans speak a language other than English. Imagine that your life depended on taking a bottle of pills properly. Now imagine how scary it would be if you were one of the 90 million people unable to understand the instructions.
SpeechMED, our multi-lingual voice platform, allows patients to hear medical information in the language that they understand, regardless of a person’s age, vision, language preference or literacy level. We want to prevent medical mishaps which is the third leading cause of death in the United States by empowering patients to understand their vital medical instructions…
SpeechMED Patient App
The ‘SpeechMED™ Mobile Patient Application (installed on an Android tablet or phone) is used by patients, that want to take charge of their personal healthcare, and have audio appointment and medication reminders read to them, in the language of their choice.
They can also use the device to create audio messages for themselves, or their caregivers, and gives them a way to view important contact information. The data found in the tablet can be entered by the patient, via the ‘Patient Portal’.
SpeechMED Patient Portal
The ‘SpeechMED™ Patient Portal’ is a website, accessed by the patient via a desktop computer. The portal allows them to enter all their personal data, including medical history, contacts, and appointment and medication reminders, complete with the ability to take pictures of the pills, so that there is less chance of confusion, when a patient is taking multiple medications.
Contacts, such as insurance and doctors, as well as emergency contacts can be entered, along with the ability to designate a person that will receive notifications, if the patients does not comply with their medication instructions.
How SpeechMED Improves Outcomes for the Patient
- Hearing and reading their information, in the language of the choice, allows the patient to better comprehend and follow their care instructions (especially if they are a non-english speaker, or they live in a household that speaks more than one language.)
- Automated audio and visual reminders reduces patient anxiety about ‘what pill to take and when’, results in less skipped medications and missed appointments.
- Having all their information in one place, and readily accessible to them, gives the patient confidence they not only have a personalized plan of action, but that it is in good working order.
- Educational videos and other resources helps engage, educate and encourage the patient to understand how to better manage their condition and the importance of adhering to their care plan.
