#11 Apps that record clinician conversations with patients and make them available later

JiffPad iPad app

"Mobile apps that record the clinical conversation a clinician has with a patient and sends it (or a link) to the patient to access after the visit;"

This example is similar to Jiff's original (and now defunct) offering, JiffPad. JiffPad was created to help doctors capture conversations they have with patients and enable patients to revisit it as many times as they’d like. The company raised $7.5 million last year. In June, the company announced a partnership with Towers Watson and a pivot from provider-focused patient engagement to business-to-business employee wellness curation, with a service called Health Outcomes Marketplace.
