Welcome to MediBabble, a free, professional-grade medical interpretation app for healthcare providers. MediBabble is a history-taking and physical exam application designed to improve the safety, efficiency, and quality of care for non-English speaking patients. A timely and accurate history is the cornerstone of medical diagnosis and treatment; the relative difficulty of obtaining one with non-English speakers is a significant barrier to care.

MediBabble currently downloads with English and Spanish included. Additional languages –– French, Mandarin, Cantonese, Russian, German, and Haitian Creole –– are available as free downloads from within the application.

- Contains thousands of translated questions and instructions all playable as high-quality audio recordings
- Thoughtfully organized by symptom to facilitate comprehensive or targeted medical history-taking all the way from chief complaint to review of systems
- A thorough physical exam section provides phrases used to prepare, position, instruct and educate patients during an exam
- Seven languages currently available: English, Spanish, French, Cantonese, Mandarin, Russian and Haitian Creole
- Tested in large university and county hospital settings, including emergency departments, inpatient wards, intensive care units, and perioperative environments
- Does not require internet connectivity once downloaded
- All content written and reviewed by a panel of physicians
- Each phrase closely reviewed by at least two medically-trained native speakers for accuracy, cultural appropriateness, and accessibility to patients of varying levels of education and health literacy

For Attending and Community providers
- Easily and intuitively organized for obtaining rapid, focused histories
- Reduce the steep costs of relying exclusively on translator phones for communication with your non-English speaking patients
- Avoid the pitfall of relying on your patient's family and friends for translation

For Nurses

- Easy to switch between languages when caring for multiple non-English speaking patients
- Avoid the pitfall of relying on your patient's family and friends for translation

- Facilitates timely-follow up history-taking after initial assessment
- Easily switch languages between patients at the press of a button

For Medical Students

For Hospital Administrators

Very useful

One problem - when searching for a term, if you want to search multiple times, the app stops working after the first search. I need to close the app completely to do another search. Otherwise I'm loving this app. I'm a first year medical student and fluent in Spanish with a history of working as a volunteer medical interpreter. I love this app because it is well organized and has both verbal and written interpretations/translations. Currently I am learning the hundreds of questions (in English) I should ask a patient during a thorough history. When I come across a question where I can't translate it to a Spanish, this is where this app comes to the rescue!!!

Physicians Assistant and Final Year medical student.

This app has helped me on countless occasions when a translator was not available and a complete history needed to be obtained quickly and thoroughly.
I hope more languages will be added in the future.

Love the app-bug on autoimmune

Awesome app. Very useful. Now, there’s a bug under Family History under Question 2, on Autoimmune Disease. It turns app off when you click it. Hope you can fix it soon! Thanks!
