MH Kiosk was designed to capture clinical information directly from patients that is often lacking in electronic medical records. It will summarize self-assessment findings, and provide direct patient education. Although self-assessment can help provide some of this information, many patients cannot successfully use typical interfaces due to cognitive disabilities, limited literacy, or low levels of computer experience.

The consistent delivery of context-rich information in an easy-to-use format eliminates significant time consuming activities and provides clinicians with the ability to initiate more timely interventions and make better informed point of care decisions.
