Description

Welcome to MediBabble, a free, professional-grade medical interpretation app for healthcare providers. MediBabble is a history-taking and physical exam application designed to improve the safety, efficiency, and quality of care for non-English speaking patients. A timely and accurate history is the cornerstone of medical diagnosis and treatment; the relative difficulty of obtaining one with non-English speakers is a significant barrier to care. We believe that a portable, widely available, real-time communication solution, like MediBabble, has the potential for profound impact and is too important to sell. Which is why we're giving it away.

MediBabble currently downloads with Spanish included, with additional languages (French, Mandarin, Cantonese, Russian, German and Haitian Creole) available as free downloads from within the application.

Features
- Contains thousands of translated questions and instructions all playable as high-quality audio recordings
- Thoughtfully organized by symptom to facilitate comprehensive or targeted medical history-taking all the way from chief complaint to review of systems
- A thorough physical exam section provides phrases used to prepare, position, instruct and educate patients during an exam
- Five languages currently available: Spanish, Cantonese, Mandarin, Russian and Haitian Creole
- Tested in large university and county hospital settings, including emergency departments, inpatient wards, intensive care units, and perioperative environments
- Does not require internet connectivity once downloaded
- All content written and reviewed by a panel of physicians
- Each phrase closely reviewed by at least two medically-trained native speakers for accuracy, cultural appropriateness, and accessibility to patients of varying levels of education and health literacy

Customer Reviews

Very useful

One problem - when searching for a term, if you want to search multiple times, the app stops working after the first search. I need to close the app completely to do another search. Otherwise I'm loving this app. I'm a first year medical student and fluent in Spanish with a history of working as a volunteer medical interpreter. I love this app because it is well organized and has both verbal and written interpretations/translations. Currently I am learning the hundreds of questions (in English) I should ask a patient during a thorough history. When I come across a question where I can't translate it to a Spanish, this is where this app comes to the rescue!!!

Lacks nursing activities

This app is amazing for gathering information! Our hospital does not have interpreters on staff, so we have to set up an interpreting service over the telephone. This app lets me communicate basic information quicker than the telephone service. As a nurse I wish there were was more information about IVs, x-rays, blood draws, and giving medications. Overall, this app is great and I recommend it to my coworkers.

Good but stopped working

This app is very good for asking patients questions and describing their conditions, however there should be questions for EMTs, and Paramedics. The new update gives a black screen every time I open the app and it will not load, this needs to be fixed
