Austin, TX -- Jun 04, 2014 / (http://www.myprgenie.com) -- CareStarter is proud to be participating in the 11th annual Stephanie's Day event sponsored by CBS 11 and TXA 21. CareStarter's Dallas referral application -- the only patient first technology designed specifically for the families of children diagnosed with chronic illnesses -- will be available for immediate download during the event. This is the first public demonstration of the North Texas referral module for iPhone, iPad, and Android devices.
The event takes place at NorthPark Center on Saturday, June 14, from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. A wide range of activities and information stations will be set up on level one, near Macy's. "Stephanie's Day" will feature interactive fun for children and helpful information for parents.
Representatives from various healthcare providers, therapy services, camps, advocacy groups and other organizations will offer information on local resources available for special needs children.
The event will feature performances by The Que Pastas and Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey ambassador clowns Kelly and Becky, as well as free activities including face painting, games, and more. This marks the eleventh year that CBS 11 and TXA 21 have presented Stephanie's Day. The event is named in honor of 24-year-old Stephanie Mauldin, the daughter of former CBS 11 and TXA 21 President and General Manager Steve Mauldin. Mr. Mauldin, who is now President and General Manager of KCBS and KCAL television in Los Angeles, now hosts an annual Stephanie's Day in southern California, as well. More information about the event is available at www.stephaniesday.net.
CareStarter is the first app for the families of children with chronic illnesses. The new app for iPhone, iPad, and Android devices is also available via web browser from any connected computer.
It's the only application that gives patients and their families' access to information and resources that can help them manage every facet of life after the diagnosis of a chronic medical condition. By delivering information tailored to each patient's diagnosis, and offering care givers at least 10 options for every kind of necessary resource -- from medical care through nutrition, respite care, education and a host of other support services -- the CareStarter app removes the fear, desperation, and doubt that make it harder than it has to be to find the resources that special needs children require.
CareStarter sorts, filters, and delivers information on all of the resources needed by patients and families living with a chronic illness. Unlike other healthcare information services that focus on a single disease, or on referrals to a physician for an acute illness, CareStarter delivers recommendations that are appropriate for each stage of the patient's life.
