Patient Safety? There's an App for That.

The Josie King Foundation has built on their successful Care Journal to unveil a new product that's right in line with today's technological advances - the Patient Journal App. This is a free tool that patients and their families can use to record important information related to a hospital stay on an iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad.

Like the Care Journal, this app helps users create a record of a patient's hospital stay. There are places to record information like names of the medical team on duty, medications, procedures, questions to ask the medical team and more. Users can email a copy of the journal as a permanent record to another doctor, or to anybody else who should review the details of the hospital stay.

Leaders at the Josie King Foundation hope that the Patient Journal App helps take a little bit of stress away from a hospital stay, empowers patients and families to participate as active members in the health care team, and improve communication with health care providers.
INQRI was honored to work with Sorrel King on a webinar last spring which focused on the amazing work of the Josie King Foundation. Please click here to learn more about Josie, view the webinar or download the slides.
