Austin, Texas–Coro Health , LLC, a new media healthcare company, announced today the launch of CoroFaith: mFaith, the first mHealth app to offer individuals access to a customized audio library of inspirational readings, prayers, sermons and meditations from the religious or spiritual tradition of their choice.
Drawing from over 1000 hours of content, CoroFaith: mFaith was designed to provide spiritual and religious continuity for individuals from a broad range of beliefs and traditions. Early adopters include professionals for use in the long-term care and aging-in-place communities and with patients in oncology settings. These include over 1000 long-term care communities, hospitals, rehabilitation agencies, home health companies, consumers and third party media distributors, supporting over 100,000 people per day.
Individuals can tap into their customized program through any mobile device, operating iOs 4.3 or higher. CoroFaith: mFaith is available in the iTunes Store. You can download and receive seven days for free and then the app is $9.99.
“Religious traditions, beliefs and spiritual practices sustain the human spirit. When we feel connected to shared communities of interest, life can be meaningful regardless of the circumstances we face,” says Dr. Carol Orsborn, Executive Director of CoroFaith. “Researchers cite the nurturing of spirit as a major contributor to an overall sense of gratitude, hope and well-being.”
Research affirms the professional wellness community’s conviction of the importance of providing spiritual and religious support to individuals in their care. For instance, recent studies show an inverse correlation between anxiety and religion in older persons, improvement in recall through meditation and an enhanced ability to cope with pain and illness.
CoroFaith content was curated by a respected team of religious and spiritual experts drawn from the Christian, Jewish, Buddhist, Catholic and Islamic communities. There are also offerings in the category of general spirituality.
Coro Health also announced that the company has rolled out a suite of therapeutic music and related content offerings targeted to additional segments of the healthcare community. These include: MusicFirst: Eldercare and MusicFirst: Alzheimer’s, MusicFirst: Oncology and soon to be released–MusicFirst: Expecting and MusicFirst: Calm Baby.
