Bilingual Talking Touchscreen's New Uses

Bilingual Talking Touchscreen Expanded for New Uses

 

The Talking Touchscreen® (La Patalla Parlanchina in Spanish) is an AHRQ-funded multimedia health information technology tool. It was originally developed as a user-friendly way of assessing patient-reported outcomes. The technology has since been used in a variety of ways. 

  • Health LiTT (Health Literacy Assessment Using Talking Touchscreen Technology) is a measure of health literacy that uses the The Talking Touchscreen to administer the assessment in a manner acceptable to patients with varying literacy skills and computer experience.
  • The Talking Touchscreen and Health LiTT have been incorporated into the Assessment Center, a free online research management center that helps researchers obtain study-specific websites for obtaining participant data.
  • The CancerHelp Talking Touchscreen® and DiabetesHelp Talking Touchscreen® have been integrated with the CancerHelp Institute’s patient education programs in English and Spanish.  

To learn more about how this innovative tool is helping patients, read the Impact Case Study at: http://www.ahrq.gov/policymakers/case-studies/cp31312.html.
