How the app works

How does the app work?

Health care providers can use the app to:
- inform
- give instructions
- ask questions

When a healthcare professional clicks a phrase, the translation appears in text, and in audio (in the patients’ language)

The patient can then answer by:
- Answering Yes/No
- Pointing and gesticulating (for example indicate how many with fingers)
- Clicking on one of the answers in the app

The answer will also appear in text and audio in the healthcare professionals’ language.

All the questions are closed ended so the dialogue will be guided by the health care professional.
