Study participants of the Computer-Facilitated 5A's (CF-5A's) included patients, primary care providers and clinical staff. During the final phase of the yearlong project the participants were interviewed about their CF-5A's experience. Here is what a few had to say:
Patients that took the CF-5A's Intervention assessment on the PhreesiaPad and saw their provider said...
"It can help a lot of people… you don’t think about that kinda stuff while you’re sitting in the doctor’s office."
"It was helpful for my health."
"Doctors don’t ask you that kind of stuff."
"Some patients came from the waiting room really ready to talk about quitting."
Healthcare staff that interact with patients in the clinical waiting areas and exam rooms said...
"[Patients] are able to to receive something tangible they can take with them that's tailored to their answers…it's great!"
"It gave patients something positive to do while they were waiting."
