A Gift of Technology for Patients

Press Release

November 7, 2012

Apple’s iPad will now serve a meaningful healing role at Huntsman Cancer Institute (HCI), thanks to local company and official Apple retailer, Simply Mac.

Huntsman Cancer Institute’s Director of Nursing Sue Childress said the iPad will assist in all parts of the mission, which is research, education, and the treatment of cancer.

“In the infusion suite, nurses and social workers will use them for patient teaching, specifically the Chemo 101 class. Patient and family support services will use them for accessing stress reduction sites, connecting with family, or linking up with meditation programs. Inpatient units will use them to assist in communication needs—using apps for patients who have had tracheotomies and can’t talk, or accessing the translation apps for non-English speakers,” said Childress.

In addition to providing two iPads to HCI, during October and through November, Simply Mac will allow customers to add a donation amount to their purchase at the register.

“HCI is a terrific resource to our community and my family has been personally touched, as have many people throughout our company and our customers,” Simply Mac president, Steve Bain said. “This is just one way we can step up to fun cancer research that fuels better treatments and ways to diagnose cancer earlier.”
