Connecticut Children’s Medical Center uses app to help families during surgery

WTNH News 8, an ABC affiliate – The surgery at Connecticut Children’s Medical Center took about three hours but new technology allowed the Killingworth mom to stay in the loop. “I used an app called EASE that doctors and nurses told us about,” she says.”EASE is an application that makes it easier for parents to do the hardest thing you do in the hospital which is leave their child alone with us and trust us,” explains Dr. Jonathan Martin, who can send messages to patient families during “set-up” and “take-down”. Extra nurses can take-part during the operation. “Surgeries at this facility can be a few minutes or in some circumstances hours,” says Martin. “And that time is agonizing for families.  So anything we can do to improve communication with families can make a huge difference for them.”
