Engaging Patients on their Healthcare Journey

To support the best health outcomes, patient education is vital to recovery. MediaCare offers patient-specific educational content, easily accessible at any time through in-room interactive whiteboards or an in-room television. Educational selections are available from an extensive library of evidence-based, age-appropriate content assigned on admission, either by physician order or diagnosis code. HCI educational content is consistent with Joint Commission Standards and meets Meaningful Use objectives for patient education resources.

For comprehensive learning, MediaCare works in tandem with a patient’s Interactive Patient Whiteboard and television to give clinicians full flexibility and make appropriate changes to assigned patient education content, adding videos for the patient to view. If a clinician determines that additional or different content should be delivered, the agility of MediaCare makes it easy. MediaCare is designed to monitor and track viewing and comprehension of assigned educational content. Once the patient has completed their assigned education, MediaCare will automatically note completion in the patient’s medical record.

With the Interactive Unit Whiteboard, clinicians can monitor education completion rates for a group of patients, such as in a wing or unit at a glance and HCI, interactive whiteboard, digital whiteboard, patient whiteboard, hospital whiteboard, patient engagement, patient education, unit whiteboard, nurse whiteboard, patient monitor, patient education, educational contentprescribe additional content or send reminders with one touch, all from a central Nursing station or central unit desk.

Printed educational material for patients is costly and requires staff time to purchase, manage, store and discard. A large hospital system can print as much as eight million pages per year at a cost of approximately $3.8 million. With a centrally managed system, hospital costs can be reduced by as much as 35-40 percent (or more) in total print volume, with a 30 percent reduction or more in toner and ink costs. That adds up to to a 25-35 percent reduction in externally sourced printing costs across the supply chain, not to mention the environmental impact of discarded toner and ink cartridges, paper consumption, and paper waste. Interactive, digital learning can help healthcare facilities reduce these costs and improve patient outcomes.

CAREPLAN Patient Education Tracking

Studies have shown that as many as 40% of patients over 65 had medication errors after leaving the hospital, and 18% of Medicare patients discharged from a hospital are readmitted within 30 days. To avoid these results, a hospital needs to prepare the patient and their caregivers to transition from one level of care to another. HCI’s CarePlan is an educational playlist developed to address specific treatments and provide explanations of conditions, tailored for each patient. These playlists are designed to support the transition of care. Each playlist is pre-populated with tailored patient education.

DISCHARGE PLANNING Starts with Comprehensive Patient Education

Studies support that patient outcomes will increase dramatically when there is a discharge plan in place, beginning at admission. Along with improving a patient’s outcome once discharged, an effective discharge strategy can help to decrease the chances of the patient being readmitted.

HCI offers MyMeds and RX Search apps, providing patients with additional education about the medications prescribed for their condition. Using the app, patients and their caregivers can quickly identify drugs and medications by name and pictures to ensure they have the right medications, check side effects and ensure their caregivers know what prescriptions they need.
