When new patients are diagnosed with Atrial Fibrillation (AFib) health care providers, including cardiologists, electro-physiologists, surgeons, and nurse practitioners will be handing them this card to introduce them to patient resources. The card from StopAfib.org, an organization “for patients by patients” helps answer questions for new patients and their families:
- Learn what AFib patients need to know
- Understand AFib treatment options
- Read the latest atrial fibrillation news
- Watch video interviews with doctors
- Find AFib patient services and resources
- Talk with others in forums & blogs
Now patients with smart phones can immediately access the mobile directory by scanning the bright red QR Code on the back of the card. With the help of a QR Code reader app, which can be downloaded for most smart phones, patients have a directory of helpful resources right at their fingertips.
The StopAfib.org mobile directory leads to an array of resources ranging from the organization’s own website, video interviews with doctors, the atrial fibrillation blog with the latest medical news relating to atrial fibrillation, a patient to patient discussion forum. Social media and contact links.
By saving the link to their phone’s home screen, this valuable resource will be just a touch away!
