Getting the right answers starts with asking the right questions
What is Bedside Chats?
Bedside Chats is a mobile and desktop application for you and your family to discover questions to ask your healthcare provider that you might not have thought to ask. Bedside chats helps patients engage with their providers in the hospital or clinic. You will be able to save questions, organize them into lists, and attach notes and answers to refer back to later.
Why do this?
Patients often leave a healthcare encounter feeling that all of their questions weren’t answered, or have a difficult time recalling the specifics of their discussions after the consultation. Through Bedside Chats, we are building the tools needed for you and your family to engage in useful and satisfying conversations with your providers.
If you have any questions, contact us anytime.
