Making medical information more accessible and understandable to patients

WhachaCallit Med

Making medical information more accessible and understandable to patients.

Our Pitch Video

Overview

“I truly believe that patients have the power to influence the future of health care - The moment that patients really understand their important and vital role in this healthcare transformation, they become the leading force.” Larisa A., Patient Champion Health Hack 2020

The Challenge

Patients often struggle with specialized terminology and the sheer amount of information available on their health conditions – e.g. medical reports, research papers, studies, treatment brochures ...

Key challenges patients commonly encounter:

  • Text is complicated and too long
  • Special terminology is not understandable
  • The text is not easily accessible (readability, unknown language, small fonts, too narrow etc.)
  • Source and credibility of information is unknown

Our Vision

A solution to help patients navigate through the often complex and confusing world of medical information. Help patients to be empowered to manage their disease and make informed decisions with their care teams.

On top, caregivers, family and friends supporting their loved ones on their journey have a tool at hand that they can use or recommend as a trusted source
