New Patient Education on Cancer, Opioids, PTSD, and more!
This June, we are releasing new patient education videos on a variety of topics including oncology, opioid use, pain management, PTSD, and common medical tests and procedures. We have fully refreshed our Oncology Library, which now offers over 30 video resources aimed at helping patients and their families navigate the diagnosis, understand specific types of cancers, decipher treatments and screenings, manage side effects, and find support. In addition, we’re expanding our Mental & Emotional Health Library with resources on opioid use and PTSD. We will expand our Quality of Care Library with new tools to address pain management and explain common medical tests and procedures.
The Hospital Acquired Conditions (HACs) custom patient engagement solution was designed with input from risk, safety, and quality managers to engage patients in helping to reduce instances of HACs. This resource helps patients understand common HACs, their role in preventing them, and the signs, symptoms, and steps to take if they suspect an HAC.
Our Readmission Risk Reduction solution offers education delivered at the right time and on the right platform to help patients manage their condition before admission, during hospitalization and through their transition back home. This solution engages patients to help drive down 30-day readmission rates and avoid costly CMS penalties.
