Re-engineered App for COVID-19 Management
Updated: Jun 5
A team of repeat entrepreneurs has been working hard to build an important mobile application for cancer patients and their care teams.
The original functionality is 90% of what clinics and patients need for telemedicine tracking, reporting, and urgent care for COVID-19 patients. In light of the coronavirus pandemic, recent updates have been made to meet the current needs of healthcare professionals.
The CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) advises that individuals exhibiting the following COVID-19 symptoms should contact their healthcare provider:
Shortness of breath
With Mobile-Angel, symptomatic individuals can safely and responsibly track their ongoing symptoms without overwhelming the healthcare system.
In following the CDC guidelines, the Mayo Clinic has also suggested that potential patients, “do not come to the hospital, clinic or drive-thru location to be tested without calling first. This minimizes potential exposure to other patients.” Mayo Clinic’s suggestions to potential COVID-19 patients can be found here.
More information regarding the CDC recommendations to prevent the spread of coronavirus can be found here.
The Mobile-Angel app is free for both medical professionals and patients to use.
The COVID-19 version of the Mobile-Angel application is available in the Apple iOS App Store under Mobile-Angel and is FREE to everyone.
About Mobile Angel
Mobile Angel is an intelligent early warning triage system for cancer care. It connects the care team and patients to provide proactive care between clinic visits and minimize delays in helping distressed patients. The free mobile app allows clinics to monitor symptoms and medications in real time and quickly communicate with patients in a virtual care environment. The app prompts patients to self-report symptoms and sends notifications for medication reminders. This allows clinics to adjust priorities based on each patient’s specific needs. The clinical staff can instantly see an intelligently prioritized patient list on their mobile devices to determine which patients need attention and why. Mobile Angel is based in Denver, CO.
