Oscar G. Johnson VAMC rates above national average with eVideon.
(VA Health Experience Rating, July 2014 to June 2015)
eVideon is the first patient education system to be integrated with VistA and CPRS. It works seamlessly, simplifying a nurse’s workflow at every step.
Using CPRS, nurses can assign educational content to a Veteran
eVideon instantly receives this assignment and makes the appropriate media available on the Veteran’s television
The Veteran’s viewing history and assessment results flow automatically back into CPRS
When Veterans can start the education process on their own with high-quality videos – especially for complex diagnoses like heart disease or diabetes – they have the chance to think about what they’ve learned and prepare questions.
For Veterans with literacy challenges, video presentations are retained better than handouts. Educational videos are available in multiple languages and hospitals can also create their own materials.
Our clinical education team will work with you to develop a comprehensive patient education library specific to the needs of your Veterans.
We will help you select educational material from a wide choice of vendors. You can also make use of in-house content and other resources.
Changes to your Veteran education library are simple with eVideon. Videos can be easily managed through eVideon’s web-based software, including changes to CPRS-assigned video line-ups.
Veterans can access hospital resources like MyHealtheVet and Advanced Directives.
eVideon promotes near teach back through post-video surveys customized by age, reading level and language. Assessments confirm a Veteran’s understanding of the materials, while reinforcing the main points of their care. Veterans also take an interactive pre-discharge survey that helps nurses evaluate their readiness to go home and identifies those at high-risk for remittance.
eVideon reduces non-medical Veteran calls for nurses and automatically directs requests to appropriate staff members. Veterans can easily request assistance or non-medical services such as a chaplain visit and housekeeping. This reduces the time spends waiting for assistance and increases staff efficiencies.
Studies show that views of nature can help Veterans with PTSD relax. Harmonia combines the beauty of nature with musical compositions to reduce stress and anxiety and promote feelings of well-being. Sleep Aid helps mask normal hospital sounds; Veterans see a “night-light” screen and can choose to hear static (brown noise), fan, waves or soothing forest sounds.
Veterans and their families access hospital information like maps, directions, cafeteria and gift information as well as community information like hotels, restaurants and shopping. Your hospital can also post resources like VA programs, community social services, crisis hotlines or hospital resources like MyHealtheVet.
