Over the past six months, our teams of producers, directors, clinical reviewers, and writers have been busy writing, shooting, and reviewing new content for introduction in March 2020. Our roadmap for creating new content is determined by several factors, including changes in healthcare delivery, updated or new guidelines, and feedback from our customers and their patients. Additionally, we are continuously updating and improving our existing videos and print materials.
Once we’ve decided which therapeutic areas we’ll focus on, every piece of content we create or update goes through a rigorous process that includes extensive research, script writing and validation, at least two layers of clinical review, and final approval. We only introduce new content that clears this extensive quality control.
This launch, we’re excited to announce the following new or updated programming:
- Cardiology: This series of videos on transcatheter and minimally invasive valve procedures is located in the Cardiology library, and focuses on transcatheter valve procedures for aortic and mitral valve disease, including education on why these procedures are performed, how they are performed, and what patients can expect.
- Cardiology & Neurology: We are dramatically expanding our programming on stroke, with new or updated programming on how to recognize symptoms of a stroke, types of stroke, stroke treatment, and stroke recovery. As part of this content update, we are moving all stroke programming from the Cardiology library to the Neurology library. Please note: if you already received the stroke programming through the Cardiology library, you will continue to receive stroke programming after we’ve completed this move. You’ll see them listed in the Neurology library, which will automatically appear on your subscription. The move comes in response to customer requests to line up our library organization with clinical workflow.
- Diabetes: As the number of Americans with diabetes surges, there’s a rise in concomitant metabolic conditions, especially including the metabolic syndrome. Our new programming addresses this disease cluster as a unified whole, so patients can better understand their condition and their treatment care plans. This programming is indexed in the Diabetes library.
- Pediatric: we are also happy to announce a new, easier-to-navigate organization in the Pediatric library. This library of patient-centric animations has been completely reorganized so it will be easier for patients to quickly find the information they’re looking for.
