Newswise — In appreciation, all attendees will receive the new Milner-Fenwick White Paper: The Right Patient Education Tools: Strategies to Improve Both Health Outcomes and Meet Regulatory Goals
As Patient Education takes a hold in meaningful use requirements, is used heavily to prevent readmissions and is looked to by patients as a way to better self-manage chronic disease or home recovery, the demand for access to quality patient education and prescribed patient education transcends hospital and healthcare facility walls. In today’s age of expected on-demand access anytime and anywhere, healthcare providers need to meet patients at their point of need with reliable, evidence based content that’s provider approved.
Milner-Fenwick talks about their lead role in building best practices and evidence based library of patient education into hospital efficiencies for improved patient outcomes, and NurseTogether.com discusses the day to day challenges and the struggles encountered by clinical staff as it strives to keep up with all the new regulations:
• overscheduled staff,
• increasing pressures of penalties and required material review,
• limited budgets,
• shortened patient stays,
• EHR work flows and the need to leverage more for less
and how Hospitals and Patient Education companies are addressing those challenges head on with new technologies.
From the more traditional DVD or CCTV, On Demand and web based access to information, health content can be delivered anytime, anywhere the patient wants or needs access. The HealthClips® Rx app, a new prescriptive tool for tablets, smartphones, and the web, makes it possible for your healthcare facility to send patient education videos to patients in the healthcare facility, at home, or in the office.
The app takes advantage of new, instant, and interactive digital technology to extend the point of care beyond your facility’s walls and personalize the education for each patient. It monitors viewing and gives you documentable information that helps with informed consent and Joint Commission recommendations and Meaningful Use rules.
Cindy Carson at Milner-Fenwick will demonstrate the impact of the application and will be on the call to talk about the content development process along with Donald Wood, author of The Intelligent Nurse who will frame the Nurse perspective in today’s regulation driven environment.
