Reduce Anxiety and Improve Patient Outcomes

Peri-procedural anxiety is the leading complaint before surgery and results in poor patient experiences, reduced satisfaction with care and worse mental and physical health outcomes.

Little Journey is proven to reduce anxiety and improve patient outcomes.

"Amazing app, helped to show my daughter what she would experience, took a little of the anxiety away. Very easy to use and very informative"

"We used the Little Journey app to help a 9 year old girl recently who was very anxious and has autism. Her previous procedures have been a real challenge due to this. After the patient downloaded and used the app, it was a much less stressful situation, simply due to the immersive distraction she experienced from playing with the app.​“
