MediBabble

Medical Translator App

Overall: 5
Functionality: 4
Coolness: 5

MediBabble is a powerful translation tool to help providers communicate with non-English speaking patients. There are many apps that provide translation tools to providers, but I have to say MediBabble is the best one on the market (and its free!). MediBabble differentiates itself with a robust database of pertinent medical phrases (including orthopaedic ones) organized in a standardized history-taking format. It does not require the user to be connected to the internet and it actually has medical phrases that are spoken to the patient from your phone. This app is probably best for intermediate language speakers who do not have the medical vocabulary to perform a complete history. Having tried the app myself I found it extremely useful as many of the phrases allow me to ask the patient close ended questions that I didn’t know ask with my mediocre spanish. Currently the app is available in Chinese, French, German Haitian Creole and Russian. Overall, a fantastic app that will help mediocre language speakers with history taking. I just wish the app would translate all that the patient was saying for me……..  but I guess that is called using translator services.

OrtoEscores

Easy app to calculate outcomes scores for patients

Overall: 4
Functionality: 3
Coolness: 5

This is a great app to help staff calculate relevant outcome scores for patients. The app includes 30 different outcome measures that surgeons can use to help establish measures for how patients are progressing through their care. The app has the functionality to email this information to the patient and to the surgeon. However, a significant portion of the app is in Portuguese as it was originally made for use in Brazil. Also, the formatting of some of the surveys on the iPhone are not the best Overall a great app to calculate outcomes scores that will be more useful once fully translated and more functional on the iPhone.

Unfortunately, I do not speak Portuguese and cannot evaluate this app based on its merits.  However, from playing around with the menus, this app appears to offer a significant amount of general information about shoulder and elbow pathology… in Portuguese.

A Portuguese-language iPhone app for orthopaedic trauma classification systems.

Overall: NR

Unfortunately, I do not speak Portuguese and cannot evaluate this app based on its merits.  However, from playing around with the menus, this app appears to closely mimic the English-language “OrthoClass” app that received very high reviews.  The only difference is that this one is in Portuguese.
