Patient Communication Tool

Using a graphic representing the patient, the Patient Communication Tool visually focuses attention on a few critical organs: heart, lungs, liver, kidneys, brain, and spirit, meaning the patient’s will to fight to recover.


During the discussion with the patient, the medical professional uses their professional judgement and the patient’s medical information to color code each organ as either green, yellow or red.


  • Green represents an organ that is functioning
  • Yellow, an organ that is slowing or no longer functioning normally
  • Red, an organ that has failed.

The end result is a Patient Dashboard with organs that are color-coded green, yellow or red.

Medical professionals can tailor conversations to the patient's desired level of detail.


Creating a new Patient Dashboard at regular intervals allows the patient to ‘see’ where their status changed from one conversation to the next conversation.
