Patients and their family members or caregivers can watch unit-specific videos, videos specific to their condition, as well as wellness and safety videos. By providing patients with an individualized educational plan on managing their condition, medication and self-care, patients are more informed and better prepared to take over their care at discharge.
eVideon can help you build a Health Education Library covering a broad range of topics, including conditions, medications, procedures, discharge instructions and wellness. You can choose from several high-quality, evidence-based educational content providers to match your needs.
From a care team perspective, eVideon is simple to manage. Patient education can be assigned through a bidirectional integration with your EHR without adding steps to the clinical team's workflow. eVideon can also document education progress, giving time back to the clinical team.
eVideon provides patients with literacy challenges a better understanding of their education. A review that examined the effectiveness of videos in modifying health behaviors found videos better facilitate change in behavior over written instructions.
Patients can review their assigned education multiple times with family members or caregivers to ensure they fully understand their care, medications, diagnosis and preparations for lifestyle changes after discharge.
The time clinical staff spends on education with their patients can be focused on the patient. Clinicians can address the patient's concerns and questions about their hospital experience and lifestyle changes they will face after discharge, helping to empower the patient to take charge of their health and be compliant while at home.
Patients can easily make non-medical service requests through the eVideon system like order a meal or give feedback on their hospital experience, including quietness at night and room temperature. The result: calls to the clinical team are reduced.
Studies show that patients who have access to entertainment and relaxation content place fewer nurse calls for pain medication and service related needs, freeing up the clinical team to focus on patient care.
With eVideon, new moms can watch on demand videos while caring for their baby. A mom can simply pause her educational video and pick it up again where she left off or review the material as needed. Video education is an important step in helping prepare new mothers for discharge and caring for their baby and themselves at home.
A new mom can easily make non-medical service requests through the eVideon system like order a meal or give feedback on experience – quietness, room temperature through interactive surveys and have her concerns addressed in real time. Plus, videos and games are perfect for keeping visiting family members entertained.
eVideon’s customized design and branding for children provides easy navigation of menus and access to pediatric education content for the patient and their parents.
Content filtering is available to assure parents their children will be entertained with age-appropriate gaming, music and videos. Internet access allows children with long-term hospital stays to connect to the outside world and stay in touch with their teachers and friends.
Young patients and their siblings are entertained and occupied with on demand videos and television. Patients can even use their gaming systems, iPads, laptops and other touchscreen displays with a plug and play device.
In units with a unique patient population like ICU, eVideon provides a quiet, relaxing environment for the patient while allowing family members to access entertainment and educational content.
Research shows that a relaxing environment can positively impact a patient’s recovery. eVideon’s Harmonia channel provides an HD visual experience, as well as soothing instrumental music to help the patient relax. To help patients sleep or to prevent waking a sleeping patient, eVideon's quiet at night feature provides a soft night light with ambient noise, reducing distractions and the effects of hospital noise.
ICU patients or family can access eVideon’s patient education to help them understand what to expect during their loved one’s hospital stay and prepare them for lifestyle changes that will be required upon discharge.
Patients with limited mobility are often unable to control their television system. Being unable to operate the TV can add to an already frustrating experience. eVideon provides an interface between Sip-and-Puff and Facial Sensor equipment to give these patients the ability to control their eVideon system and communicate with caregivers.
On demand movies like comedies release endorphins, helping patients de-stress and relax before surgery. A review that examined the effectiveness of videos in modifying health behaviors found they can better facilitate change in behavior over written instructions.
Animations and anatomy visualizations are also helpful tools that clinical staff can use to answer patient questions and ensure the patient has an in-depth understanding of their procedure.
Research shows that when patients have access to a relaxing environment, they experience a faster recovery from anesthesia and need less pain medication. eVideon's Harmonia solution uses the beauty of nature combined with musical compositions to provide a calm and relaxing environment for the patient during recovery.
eVideon helps create a pleasant experience for patients throughout their hospital stay. Patients who are waiting for admission or who are further along in their recovery and waiting for discharge can also access eVideon’s entertainment features.
For patients who need Dialysis or infusion, eVideon’s entertainment options can make these visits more pleasant and comfortable. eVideon’s swing arm and tablet solutions are perfect for outpatient facilities where patients may be in close proximity to one another.
In the emergency department, the eVideon system meets education needs while the patient is waiting for test results or completion of their treatment. A study on the effectiveness of videos in health behavior modification uncovered that videos are better at facilitating behavior change than written instructions. eVideon also provides entertainment to patients while they are in the emergency department, enhancing their overall experience.
If patients are admitted to the hospital from the emergency department, the eVideon experience follows them throughout their hospital stay – so their education progress and entertainment goes with them.
eVideon' Digital Signage feature is a great way to communicate messages on healthy living, disease prevention, community programs, events and more. eVideon’s Digital Signage module includes video and messaging for a powerful presentation.
Televisions can be grouped to ease the process of assigning presentations and scheduling for outpatient waiting rooms or inpatient visitor waiting rooms. You could schedule the news to be shown from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m., then show live HD television or movies. Branded messages can be added as well as messages in a ticker along the bottom. eVideon can also integrated with RTLS, to individualize the patient's experience while in the exam room.
Tablets using the eVideon system can be used to provide valuable patient education to patients while they are in the exam room. Animations and anatomy visualizations are also helpful tools that clinical staff can use to ensure the patient has an in-depth understanding of their diagnosis, procedures or to answer patient questions.
