Hello from your care team

Welcome to Medopad. Your care team has chosen this mobile app to help you keep track of your health and optimise your care. Let’s help you get started on this journey.

What does the app do?

This is a mobile app designed for burns survivors. It tracks your health and activity at home, and shows your care team your progress.

Who has access to my data ?

Your care team will be given access to your data when you create your Medopad account. Your care team can access your data at any time through their own portal. You can choose who your data is shared with at any time in the app.

When to use Medopad ?

Medopad will be added to your phone, so it’s important you keep it with you during the day. Your care team has chosen the activities for you (e.g. blood pressure) and it’s important you complete them as prescribed.
