GRAND RAPIDS, MI – March 3, 2021 – eVideon, a leader in interactive patient engagement and digital workflow solutions, and Tampa General Hospital announced a partnership to provide patients and families with advanced education and services. Recently named the Best Hospital in Tampa Bay by U.S. News & World Report, Tampa General is committed to providing area residents with excellent and compassionate health care ranging from the simplest to the most complex medical services.
eVideon gives patients, their families and visitors more options, enjoyment and control during their stay. In addition to entertainment including HDTV, movies on demand and music, patients and caregivers can access video education content tailored to the patient’s preferences, age, condition and language. Further, patients are able to also submit requests for non-medical items or services to appropriate staff members who can address their needs and allow nursing staff to focus on clinical care.
“Partnering with eVideon has allowed us to take our patient rooms to the next level,” said Scott Arnold, executive vice president, chief information officer at Tampa General. “Delivering superior care is always our primary goal, and the ability to make a patient’s stay more comfortable by personalizing their choices for entertainment is just one of the many ways we have set out to accomplish this.”
Tampa General is deploying eVideon’s patient experience platform across more than 1,000 hospital beds and leveraging integration of electronic health records (EHR). This allows seamless assignment of patient education, along with automatic documentation back into the EHR. Automated education also eliminates the need for printed handouts and allows patients and families to access content where and when they need it.
eVideon is equally as enthusiastic about the new partnership. “We’re looking forward to working with the team at Tampa General to make the care experience perfect for their patients, families and visitors,” said Jeff Fallon, CEO at eVideon. “No two hospitals are the same, and we really enjoy working with hospital leadership to create a unique solution that drives meaningful interactions and relationships between providers and patients.”
Tampa General will also be developing a “patient room of the future” in collaboration with eVideon. The vision will include deploying the latest and most meaningful tech-enabled experience for patients and visitors. eVideon’s patient experience platform will be available in TGH patient rooms beginning June 1, 2021.

The platform leverages integrations with EHRs, building management systems, food service systems, real-time location systems, and more.
