A new application can help ease clinical pain points for patients and care teams, alike.

Arches Technology has partnered with Kettering Health Network, to develop and implement My Care Compass, a new digital patient navigation tool.

The application helps patients before and after their treatments, by helping prepare them for their procedure through animated videos, text messages and emails, timed to coincide with the specific step they are going through.

Post procedure communication also is timed to provide information that is appropriate and useful for the cancer milestones as they reach them. The software architecture is HIPAA compliant, so patient information is secure, and the communications provide a seamless experience for patients.

This approach of removing stress for the patients, and the clinical staff, as well, leads to a more holistic experience for the patients, which, can also, ultimately aid in their recovery.
