Preventable events associated with inappropriately treated conditions can lead to worsening health or even death. MedSplain aims to do something about this problem.

It can be difficult to talk to medical professionals. Patients can find it difficult to understand any number of terms, definitions, or instructions related to their diagnosis and treatment. This leaves patients confused, which can lead to poor adherence or incorrect application of a prescribed treatment. This confusion can also result in a delayed or missed follow-up, misinformation as the patient attempts to “Google it” on their own, or asking a non-professional that they know personally. Dr. Nicole Longo approached Chop Dawg with the idea of the MedSplain app to change this for the better. The MedSplain app, first and foremost, needed to resolve this communication gap that patients were experiencing.

Using MedSplain, a user has instant access to a team of “translators” – medical professionals who have been verified and screened to explain anything in plain-English.

MedSplain provides real-time clarification of medical terminology. It can deliver a simple explanation of a diagnosis, treatment and provider instructions. With just a few taps and at a nominal cost, anyone can have a better understanding of their conditions and treatments. MedSplain is also a great tool for prevention. Utilizing a simple but powerful interface, anyone will be able to view a curated repository of medical terms & definitions, read & view helpful content related to their questions, and find local healthcare providers.

One major feature of MedSplain is the on-demand connection with translators and to interact via video chat for real-time explanations.

Sometimes patients will need an instant explanation of what certain medical jargon means. MedSplain eventually brings the promise of utilizing multiple timezones, country & language support, as well as new payment options. As the app moves beyond the prototype stage, it will also include a state-of-the-art admin backend to easily manage users & providers, track metrics, update content, and include relevant notifications & alerts.

We started by creating a non-functional prototype (NFP) together.

Chop Dawg provided MedSplain with their decade of award-winning expertise to help them bring their app idea to fruition, starting with an NFP. The end result of this project will be a fully designed app for both the iPhone and Android, all of the editable assets ready for programmers to take control of, and a clickable NFP that can be demoed to prospective individuals essential to MedSplain’s success. Programmers will use this once the product is ready to begin programming on a next project and serve as a reference point for MedSplain when showing the vision of the product to others.

"Chop Dawg's ability to take my ideas and put them into this type of technology was phenomenal. They not only had artistic expertise but were also able to understand what I wanted to accomplish medically. While they’re not a medical company, they did an awesome job with a medial application."

Nicole Longo - Founder & Chief Executive Officer

Some of the technology that we plan to support when we program the MedSplain app

MedSplain was created as a non-functional prototype and is planned to be built as an iPhone and Android application using React Native and with REST APIs, supporting iOS 12, iOS 13, and Android 9, Android 10.
