Recently, imPACT members received a donation of 18 Pantech Element tablets from AT&T to help meet one of the council’s goals to improve technology access in the hospital. Representatives from AT&T came to MD Anderson and presented each council member with a tablet. The tablets will be used in the Patient Tablet Donor program, which lends out tablets and laptops to patients during their hospital stay.
“Our vision is to connect people with their world, and we know that these patients often are isolated from their friends and life back home while undergoing treatment,” says AT&T representative Carlos Ramirez. “We hope that these tablets can help patients stay in touch with their friends, family and loved ones while they’re at the hospital.”
