GRAND RAPIDS, MI & SEATTLE, WA:
eVideon, a leader in hospital patient experience, and Wellpepper, a leader in interactive patient care plans, today announced a partnership to deliver comprehensive patient experiences across inpatient and outpatient settings. Both companies work with health systems to deliver a better patient experience. The partnership enables health systems to deploy integrated solutions from best-of-breed vendors. eVideon and Wellpepper are integrating their solutions so providers can deliver a consistent experience across care settings from hospital to home.
"Increasingly, health systems are looking for patient experiences that span inpatient and outpatient settings," said Wellpepper CEO Anne Weiler. "The patient journey begins before a patient enters the hospital and continues long after discharge. This partnership enables an engaging and usable experience for patients across their entire journey of care."
Wellpepper's clinically validated digital treatment plans guide users through all the activities they need to do outside the clinic to manage an episode of care: from preparing for a clinic or hospital visit, to managing a chronic condition or recovering after hospital discharge, via patients' preferred mobile, web, or voice devices. eVideon enhances the inpatient experience, providing personalized interactive bedside capabilities that empower patients to control their environment, learn about their conditions, access hospital services, order meals or watch movies on demand. Both companies are passionate about improving the patient experience while providing data and analytics to streamline clinician workflows and improve outcomes.
"eVideon and Wellpepper share a passion for bringing long overdue self-service to healthcare through personalized, engaging systems," said Jeff Fallon, CEO of eVideon. "Interoperability is vital, and the value of better outcomes and streamlined workflows is undeniable - not just for patients, but for clinicians and staff too. We're excited about the new possibilities this comprehensive solution will bring across care environments for our customers."
The partnership enables health systems to own the end-to-end patient care pathway. Health systems can deploy eVideon's and Wellpepper's solutions simultaneously or sequentially. Solution architects from eVideon and Wellpepper are available to consult with healthcare technology and patient experience groups to determine the best approach for rolling out a comprehensive solution.
eVideon digitizes hospitals with a suite of bedside engagement systems, hospital TV, digital signage, and other interactive displays. Patients enjoy the convenience of self-service at the bedside with access to meal ordering, entertainment, education, hospital services and more, while staff enjoy streamlined, paperless workflows. Interactive surveys and patient feedback help patients communicate immediate needs, and help hospitals respond to those needs quickly. The platform leverages integrations with EHRs, building management systems, food service systems, real-time location systems and more. Data analytics provide valuable insights into patient behaviors and pain points, letting hospitals improve service and outcomes. Learn more at www.evideon.com.
