Although it seems like just yesterday that we launched the Healthcare APPtitude radio show, it’s now been more than a year since we first hit the airwaves. While the past year has been extremely unpredictable for our nation – and our industry especially – one thing that has remained constant is that month after month, we’re joined by amazing guests on this show. We’ve talked with MobileSmith Health’s own thought leaders and many other industry experts who have shared tips for providers to better engage their patients, along with their unique perspectives on how mobile application technologies are changing the lives of healthcare consumers.
In this episode, we were thrilled to welcome one of our customers, Dr. Zuzanna Kubicka of South Shore Health. Last year, South Shore Health came to us to help solve a problem they were having in its NICU – the hospital needed a solution to better engage patients’ families. Be sure to tune into this episode, where myself, my co-host Tom Testa, and special guest Dr. Kubicka discuss the experience for both staff and patients’ families since implementing a family integration app, FICare, into the NICU at the hospital.
You can always catch the latest radio show episode of Healthcare APPtitude, airing weekdays at 7:00 a.m., 3:00 p.m. and 11:00 p.m. ET on HealthcareNOW Radio.
Be sure to check out one of our earlier blog posts, “How Mobile App Technology is Integrating Families into Care Teams,” that follows a heartwarming story about the Angelos family and their experience in becoming equal members of their child’s neonatal care team through the use of South Shore Health’s FICare app – developed as part of MobileSmith Health’s ecosystem of interoperable, EMR-integrated mobile health products and services.
