ABOUT THE FREE MOBILE ANGEL APP
Mobile Angel is a free intelligent telemedicine app for clinics to monitor symptoms and quickly communicate with their patients on a daily basis. Set up only takes 5 minutes. The app connects staff and patients in an early warning triage system to minimize delays in helping distressed patients.
The free application monitors cancer care and COVID-19 patients through self-reported symptoms and then intelligently sorts and prioritizes them based on severity of symptoms. With built-in telemedicine features, clinic staff can directly monitor patients while reducing in-person visits and potential exposure.
HOW DOES MOBILE ANGEL HELP?
The real-time self-reported symptom data is collected and viewable at the national and state levels, respectively, with the ability to filter by clinic and zip code. The intent is to view and compare trends at the local clinic level and allocate resources across clinics, regions, and cities. All patient data is anonymized and recorded based on the clinic location only, making patient data unidentifiable and protecting each patient’s individual location.
HOW DOES MOBILE ANGEL WORK FOR COVID-19?
The suggested approach is for each clinic to ask potentially infected or at-risk patients to download the Mobile Angel app and connect to the clinic. Notifications and reporting are automatically established and clinic staff receive alerts when severe symptoms are reported. Telemedicine features allow symptom management without patients ever leaving their homes, protecting both patients and clinic staff from potential exposure or worsening of symptoms.
ABOUT THE MOBILE ANGEL TEAM
For the last 18 months, Mobile Angel’s team has donated more than 12,000 hours on this free application for use in cancer care and oncology treatment. As volunteers, we’ve quickly re-engineered the mobile application to address the COVID-19 crisis through real-time, self-reported, and actionable data at the clinic level while adding value to patient care–but most importantly, from a distance! Mobile Angel is based in Denver, CO.
