Android Media Apps for Patient Engagement

Offer patients choice with diversion activities using the Android app Games App through MediaCare

Android media apps provide a powerful set of engagement tools for patients. They alleviate stress and boredom, let patients connect with family or caregivers and obtain educational content about their condition and treatment.

While patient care is the primary concern for healthcare providers, ensuring satisfaction and providing engagement opportunities with engagement tools has a significant impact on patient satisfaction and HCAHPS scores. Most patients are required to stay in their bed and are restricted from leaving their room. Patients end up with many hours to fill and want some sort of entertainment and diversion. They want to have entertainment options at their fingertips with the familiarity of Android apps and devices they use at home.

Scalable, Flexible and Cost-Effective

HCI integrated, interactive patient care solutions scale to your needs, today and tomorrow. MediaCare provides your facility a long-term solution that positively impacts patient satisfaction and provides patient education from day one. Teamed with Android apps, no other patient engagement and entertainment provider can match MediaCare’s level of flexibility and scalability.

HCI Patient Education provides better patient engagement and involvement in shared decision-making.
