Coro Health has launched MusicFirst: Oncology, an mHealth app that makes personalized therapeutic music available in chemotherapy settings over mobile devices.

“Our app is the first to address the challenge of making therapeutic music in oncology settings personalized, accessible and affordable.”

Coro Health, LLC, a new media healthcare company, announced today the launch of MusicFirst: Oncology, the first clinically-proven therapeutic music application to bring individualized therapeutic music to oncology settings. For information: http://www.corohealth.com/.

MusicFirst: Oncology has been designed to create a relaxing environment to support the individual’s immune system, increase oxygen levels, lower pulse rates and more. This is the first time healthcare professionals, patients in treatment and family members can access therapeutic music for individuals while undergoing chemotherapy.

Patients can tap into their customized music program through mobile devices, operating iOs 4.3 or higher located at a treatment station. The program is available in the Apple iTunes store and offers the first hour of listening for free.

MusicFirst: Oncology music was handcrafted, song-by-song, by a respected team of music therapists, designers and neuroscientists specifically for use in oncology settings.

“The healthcare community has become increasingly aware of the power of music to support individuals undergoing treatment for cancer,” says Coro Health CCO Leanne Flask. “Our app promises to revolutionize oncology patient support by addressing the challenge of making therapeutic music in oncology settings personalized, accessible and affordable.”

Individuals can choose from over 1000 hours of music by favorite genre to experience the benefits of MusicFirst such as reduction of anxiety, clarity of mind or the reduction of perceived pain.

Coro Health also announced that the company is rolling out a suite of therapeutic music and related content offerings targeted to additional segments of the healthcare community. These include the flagship offering: MusicFirst: Eldercare and MusicFirst: Alzheimer’s followed shortly by MusicFirst: Expecting and MusicFirst: Calm Baby as well as CoroFaith: a unique wellness product that addresses the critical spiritual dimension of health and well-being.

The mHealth apps are supported by Coro Health’s original research, published in the January 2012 “Journal of Music and Medicine”. Results from the study included a reduction in agitation and depression by as much as 54%.

MusicFirst: Oncology is available in the iTunes Store. You can download and receive the first hour for free and then it is $2.99 a month.
