Pewaukee, WI – May 2, 2017 – The Wellness Network (TWN), the largest in-hospital education television network in the United States has announced the acquisition of Milner-Fenwick (MF) one of the largest and most respected publishers of patient education videos in the country. The combined entity counts more than 53% of U.S. hospitals in their customer base. Together, they will focus on delivery and continued expansion of their collective best-in-class video library to increase patient and family understanding and engagement. To increase effectiveness, videos can be integrated into clinical workflow and care plans and delivered anywhere, any time in hospitals, clinics, and on patient devices.
The breadth of peer-reviewed, quality content from MF, along with TWN’s integrated, multi-platform delivery capabilities positions The Wellness Network as an able and affordable partner in driving system-wide patient engagement and education.
“My family has spent over forty years pioneering and evolving the patient education video format to enhance and support today’s healthcare communication environment. As part of The Wellness Network, our tremendous library will be seen by more patients and their families and ultimately have greater impact on ROI for healthcare providers,” says Dave Milner, President of Milner-Fenwick.
Pewaukee, WI – April 11, 2017 – The Wellness Network (TWN), the largest in-hospital education television network in the United States and Care 24/7 (C247), an innovative Knoxville, TN based care management company, today announced a strategic partnership to integrate educational videos into care plans as directed by providers to better support the needs of, and improve outcomes for Medicare patients and their families. Together, the partners have enhanced capabilities to better engage and influence patients throughout the continuum of care while facilitating Chronic and Transitional Care Management for providers with the addition of TWN’s comprehensive, peer-reviewed, award-winning video content into C247’s high-touch care coordination delivery.
With over 60% of Medicare patients diagnosed with chronic disease and approximately 80% of readmissions attributed to poor care transition, primary care physicians are tasked with finding cost-effective, revenue enhancing, and meaningful ways to ensure patients receive coordinated and consistent care to prevent hospital admission or readmission, advance patient education and management of their condition, and ultimately improve quality of life. Integrated care plans, which will now include TWN’s videos, are administered by a team of wellness coordinators under the directives of providers to help patients better manage their health. This unique model integrates consistent monthly personal interaction, process automation that ensures better disease management, technology via the use of C247’s proprietary Patient Relationship Management Platform (PRM), and now market-leading patient educational content. “This comprehensive integration of people, process, technology, and content will promote better patient outcomes, drive down the overall cost of healthcare for Medicare patients with serious chronic care issues, and allows a revenue generating path for practices who wish to better serve their Medicare patients 24 hours a day, seven days a week,” noted Huy Nguyen M.D., Executive Chairman of Care 24/7.
