Medical error results in $17- 50 billion in direct costs annually in the United States. That mark rises to as high as a trillion dollars when indirect costs are included. Studies have implicated communication failure in over 90% of medical error. Specifically, information handover between teams contribute to a quarter of medical error in hospital. The failure of communication and handover costs billions of dollars a year and more tragically hundreds of thousands of lives.

The application works on any device and is using bank level standard in term of security.
