Dr. Anthony Schepsis Encourages Use of New Apps in Orthopedic Education
Date:6/5/2013

Boston, Massachusetts (PRWEB) June 05, 2013

Dr. Anthony Schepsis has long served as an advocate for the proper training and education of healthcare professionals and, in terms of providing information regarding recommended treatment options, patients. A recent article published by Healio sheds light on the role that mobile applications are playing in making it easier for individuals to achieve a higher level of understanding regarding orthopedic conditions and procedures. In a statement to the press, Dr. Schepsis asserts the value of this new technology.

According to the article, 3D4Medical and Stanford University School of Medicine have partnered to create a suite of three-dimensional apps. The goal of these apps is to provide a high degree of understanding to patients and healthcare providers regarding specific orthopedic issues. The article asserts that the suite contains topics including: "Essential Anatomy, Orthopedic Patient Education, Skeleton System Pro, Spine Pro, Knee Pro, Shoulder Pro, Hip Pro, Foot and Ankle Pro, and Hand and Wrist Pro." With these applications, which provide a three-dimensional model of the targeted area, healthcare professionals can assist colleagues and patients in understanding the medical condition present and the proposed way in which to address it. Using animation, these apps demonstrate surgical and other procedures.

"Patient understanding and education of disease processes, diagnoses for which they are undergoing treatment and, especially, surgical procedures that are being recommended for treatment are key elements to appropriate decision making, patient satisfaction and successful outcomes," asserts Dr. Anthony Schepsis. "There is an increasing number of websites available for patient education; however, sometimes finding the appropriate information, especially visual aids and videos, can sometimes be difficult. There is now an increasing number of applications available not only for iPads and computers but for smartphones as well. These technological resources can contribute to a detailed patient understanding of surgical procedures, which is best accomplished through visual aids. Basically, apps can be used to help patients to understand exactly what to expect during their treatment and rehabilitation process. Ultimately, this knowledge can directly impact the outcomes that patients experience."

The role of education in the orthopedic field is essential to taking the best care of patients possible, and the responsibility to educate others includes instruction provided to both fellow orthopedic professionals and patients. The apps that 3D4Medical and Stanford University School of Medicine have created are wonderful tools for achieving a higher degree of understanding.
