This enhanced program is designed for medical personnel who need to conduct medical interviews and examinations with patients whose language is Spanish.
Based on the course taught at the University of California to Medical students and students in the Master of Public Health programs, it includes the entire "Review of Systems," a special section for diabetics and their families, patient instructions for physical exams and common medical procedures, as well as questions on family health and medicines/drugs and anatomical diagrams for easier explanations.
Most of the questions are presented in a "yes/no" format with “touch yes/no” answers, short text fields and the ability to attach notes.
The final report is saved on the iPod/ iPad and can be saved or sent to a specified email account for printing .
