A Phrazer prototype
Render of the current generation of the Phrazer
Phrazer is a handheld medical communicator that identifies a patient's native language and gathers information using onscreen videos, which is summarized into a medical record compatible with all major EMR systems
Each Phrazer can hold over 300 languages at any one time and scripts can be customized to suit an organization's individual language needs
With over 170 languages spoken in the U.S. alone, medical personnel attending an emergency or working in a busy hospital are no doubt often faced with communication problems when trying to dispense treatment. The Phrazer offers a possible solution to this problem. It is billed as the world's first multilingual communication system, where patients provide medical background information, symptoms or complaints with the help of a virtual onscreen doctor speaking in their own native tongue. This information is then summarized into a medical record compatible with all major EMR systems.
