Revolutionizing the Way
Breast Cancer Patients
Understand their Bodies
BioDigital simplifies breast reconstruction through interactive storytelling, giving patients the understanding they need to make the best treatment decisions for their health.
Empowering Patients to Make Better Treatment Decisions
What are my options for breast reconstruction? When is the right time to do it? Will my breasts ever look natural again? What is recovery like?
These are just a few of the uncertainties breast cancer patients face when considering breast reconstruction after mastectomy. The combination of low health literacy and the emotionality of a cancer diagnosis and treatment journey make the decision of how to proceed a confusing (and often devastating) one.
With the rise of the consumerization of healthcare, patients want to be active participants in their own health more than ever before. However, current forms of communicating complex disease and treatment do not meet the needs of patients.
We’re transforming patient education by simplifying complex medicine using cloud-based 3D technology. Watch as our interactive narrative tour walks patients through the DIEP (deep inferior epigastric perforators) breast reconstruction procedure.
Patient Education is Ripe for Disruption
The way health systems approach shared decision making— and the way education companies support this provider-patient engagement— is ripe for disruption.
In a world where consumers are accustomed to rich, immersive experiences, today’s patient education does not match consumer expectations. BioDigital brings interactive 3D to clinicians that enable better communication and more effective education, bridging the knowledge gap between providers and patients.
Imagine the difference between reading and an article about a complex reconstructive surgery and walking through each step of the procedure in 3D. Interactive 3D allows you to experience the procedure, providing a real understanding of the decision at hand.
At a time when breast cancer patients feel powerless over what is happening to their own bodies, we strive to give women that power back through education.
Raising Health Literacy
We combine the power of narrative instruction with the cutting-edge technology of interactive 3D to create engaging experiences that not only educate patients and clinicians, but also drive positive health outcomes.
Health systems are incentivized to educate patients and support shared decision-making but providers are stressed for time and lack effective communication tools. With a mission to make health and the human body understandable to all people, BioDigital has developed over 600 interactive 3D condition and treatment models to give patients a deeper understanding of what’s happening to their bodies.
