"As easy as pushing a button on a phone."
Medcorder is a smartphone app for anyone whose anxiety or memory / attention may interfere with full recall of important details of doctor visit discussions.
The app developer has a personal experience of having to deal at long distance with his mother, father, and brother going through cancer treatments. As a result, he created this app to allow patients to capture important details of their doctor visits and share them with family and selected friends.
The app on the patient’s smart phone creates audio recordings (with the doctor's permission) of the visit, then transcribes (by machine) the content, and shares the transcription with people invited by the patient.
The app sends the encrypted audio file from the smartphone to secure servers for transcription and storage. Neither the audio nor the transcription is stored in the patient's chart. The patient, not the doctor, initiates the recording and shares the transcript with selected family / friends.
