There are thousands of healthcare apps available worldwide. However, the majority don’t have many downloads, indicating that there is an opportunity for growth and improvement. That’s just part of the reason we developed Boom Health.
Post-hospital syndrome is a period of vulnerability following hospital discharge. It can last up to 7 weeks, leaving loved ones at increased risk of rehospitalization, disease, and adverse events.
One study found that approximately 20% of patients discharged from hospitals sustained an adverse event within three weeks. Of these, nearly 75% were deemed to be preventable or more severe than necessary. Another study revealed that 19.6% of patients required rehospitalization within 30 days. Additionally, 34% were readmitted within 90 days. These studies, along with numerous others, highlight the impact that personalized care and planning can have on patients following discharge.
With this at the forefront, the Boom Health platform was created. It’s a one-stop app that helps simplify all the medical challenges faced by your loved one after hospital discharge. It is comprehensive and combines a user-friendly interface with an innovative design.
The top feature that patients look for in healthcare apps is functionality. According to one user, the Boom Health app is “super easy to use” and can save you a tremendous amount of time and effort when caring for a loved one.
Boom Health’s meal service helps a current customer, Martin, enjoy food more and be healthier, which makes him a healthier caregiver for his father. It also frees up time for his father to relax when he orders and reduces stress on his father’s caregiver.
The Boom Health app allows users to book registered nurses, personal support workers, and personal care services, schedule transportation, order prepared meals, rent or purchase medical equipment, and get emergency assistance. Within the app, you can securely store and share important documents with family members and stay informed about upcoming appointments using the built-in calendar. The family chat feature allows you to keep family members updated or stay up to date on your loved one’s care. Should you want to split costs among family members, the shared payment feature is there for your convenience. Download the app from the App Store or Google Play Store!
