App review: MediBabble Helps Bridge Language Barriers
According to TopOrthoApps.com, a medical-app review site, MediBabble does a very good job helping doctors communicate with non-English speaking patients. The app received very high scores in “coolness,” functionality, and overall features. MediBabble contains a very robust database of medical phrases and does not require an Internet connection. The app enables providers to ask patients closed-ended questions in their native language during all-important history-taking. Currently the app supports Chinese, French, German, Haitian Creole, and Russian.
