When you are admitted to a hospital the first thing you want is answers. Answers to what is causing your illness and the plan for treatment. There are many options available for educating the patient. Two options that come to mind are through educational printouts or being verbally told by the staff. What if your facility had the option to educate your patients through video?
On-demand, patient education can increase retention by up to 16 times more than that of text. HCI has developed a patient education app that can educate your patients in the most effective and time efficient way possible. This app, which is part of our interactive patient care software, has the capability to:
- prescribe educational videos to the patient
- reduce cost with no longer needing to print patient education materials
- create a better patient understanding of how to manage their health once released
- improve compliance and better patient outcomes
- decrease readmission
The patient education app has the option to integrate into the ADT and EMR systems. This will provide staff with the ability to automate several workflows and focus on the quality of care they are providing.
Providing proper patient education encourages retention and trust while also encouraging the patient to continue caring for their health after they leave the hospital. Discover more on what this app and other apps HCI has created by clicking here.
