Randall Porter, MD, a neurosurgeon with Phoenix-based Banner Health, aims to bridge the communication gap between patients and their families during the coronavirus pandemic through a new app, reports ABC15 Arizona.

Hospitals around the country are banning visitors due to the COVID-19 outbreak and Dr. Porter's app provides a way to keep family and friends informed about patients who are being treated in hospitals.

The app, Medical Memory, enables providers to record patient visits and share the videos with family and friends.

Dr. Porter has made the app available for free over the next several weeks.
