Mobile Hospital

The project Mobile Hospital develops a mobile application that helps children and their families experience authentic hospital surroundings and better prepare for a hospital visit.
Mobile Hospital project aims to ease the nursing staff’s work and streamline a conduct of a procedure with child patients by providing unique, authentic tool for preparing children for hospital visit and procedures. At the same time, it reduces children’s fear of hospitalization that often is caused by unknown environment and equipment. Fear can, for example, cause mobility in procedure where there should stay still or lack of cooperation, making procedure more difficult to do. The challenge that hospitals face when trying to provide children with adequate information and counselling before hospitalization lies in the lack of resources to organize pre-tour of the hospital and lack of counseling materials targeted to the children. There are many applications developed for children, but many of them have been developed without cooperation with hospitals. At least, they are not widely and systematically used. The universities, children’s hospitals and NGOs that improve the care of children in healthcare services will jointly develop the Mobile Hospital application, that utilize the 360 pictures. 360 feature enables children and families to encounter the authentic hospital environment, access relevant information, familiarise themselves with the procedure at their own pace. The application will be piloted and evaluated by end-users (children/families) in three countries. Even if 360 pictures are taking in a certain hospital, the material will be usable also in other hospitals.
