Cure 4 The Kids Foundation Selects eVideon to Drive and Enhance the Patient Experience for Children Receiving Cancer Care
Non-Profit Childhood Cancer Treatment Facility Leverages Innovative Digital Engagement Solution for Advanced Patient Experience and Distraction Therapy Offerings
GRAND RAPIDS, MI – May 17, 2022 – eVideon, a leader in interactive patient engagement and digital workflow solutions, and Cure 4The Kids Foundation (C4K), a research-driven pediatric cancer treatment center, have joined forces to elevate the patient experience for children receiving treatment for cancer and other pediatric catastrophic diseases. C4K, Nevada’s only pediatric oncological care facility, is committed to providing patients with a compassionate care experience. By leveraging eVideon’s innovative Vibe Health Engage TV software, C4K patients will have access to much needed entertainment and distraction therapy offerings.
“It has been a rewarding experience working with eVideon,” said Jamey Felsing, vice president of operations at C4K. “Their team’s longstanding industry experience and expertise has been vital to developing a strategy to optimize our patients’ experience. Installing the iPads will create a great patient experience giving our patients access to not only entertainment but also connect them to our onsite classroom for help with schoolwork. The Engage TV software will allow us to create a positive and relaxing atmosphere with entertainment and distraction therapy offerings that are easily navigated and customizable. This is especially important for young patients, as we want to do all we can to preserve their childhood as they navigate such a difficult process.”
As part of their treatment regimen, pediatric patients often spend hours at a time sitting in infusion chairs. The C4K Foundation realized the importance of digital entertainment for providing a more tolerable and positive care experience. The organization will deploy eVideon’s Vibe Health Engage TV – on iPads mounted to infusion chairs via swingarms – to deliver streaming content like HDTV, on-demand movies, Google Classroom, music, games, and more, to help distract patients from time-consuming and uncomfortable treatments.
“It has been a privilege working with the team at C4K and seeing their commitment to improving cancer care for children,” said Jeff Fallon, CEO of eVideon. “The work we are doing together demonstrates the many benefits of, and applications for, interactive patient technology. We are thrilled to be a part of the foundation’s effort to create a more positive care experience for young patients, during what can only be described as an unimaginable time in their lives. With easy-to-use entertainment options young patients can focus on fun while receiving lifesaving treatment.”
eVideon’s flexible digital engagement solutions can be easily scaled across devices, operating systems, applications, and EMRs, and can be deployed in a range of environments including infusion bays, emergency departments, inpatient rooms, or on a patient’s own devices post-discharge. The interactive interface meets patients where they are, ensuring a convenient experience, regardless of age or ability. Engage TV ensures patients are treated as people by facilitating meaningful interactions and creating a supportive and relaxing environment.
