HealthiNation and eVideon Announce New Content Distribution Partnership
May 16, 2018 --
HealthiNation Health Video Content Now Available on eVideonís Hospital Systems
NEW YORK, May 16, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- HealthiNation, a leading producer and publisher of consumer health videos announced an agreement today with eVideon, a leading hospital solutions system to distribute HealthiNationís award-winning content to eVideon and their network of more than fifty facilities.
The partnership allows eVideon to help clinicians easily personalize a patientís health condition journey with related interactive education content from HealthiNationís deep library of thousands of medical and wellness videos.† Through HealthiNationís dynamic health video programming, patients and their families can learn about a given health conditionís symptoms, diagnosis and treatment, medical care and testing, and advice for living well with a chronic health issue.
ďPatient engagement and education continues to be critical for patient recovery.† HealthiNation video content is a strong addition to eVideonís systems,Ē says Spencer Draper, eVideonís Director of Clinical Solutions. ďTheir cancer video content and related immunotherapy video content will be tremendously additive to hospitals and nursesí patient education tool box.Ē
eVideon integrates with a hospitalís electronic health records system (EHR) to enable healthcare providers to easily begin the patient education process. Healthcare providers can also determine a patientís video-viewing history and assess engagement and then document these things into the EHR. These elements are all critical factors in addressing hospital HCAHPS (Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers) scores.† The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (P.L. 111-148) includes HCAHPS among the measures used to calculate value-based incentive payments in the Hospital Value-Based Purchasing programs.
ďWeíre delighted to partner together with eVideon to provide their numerous hospitals, inclusive of the Veteranís Administration community, with our expansive patient education library. †Ensuring that patients receive the highest quality of engaging video education is a hallmark of the HealthiNation brand,Ē says HealthiNationís Chief Executive Officer Michael OíDonnell.
Hospitals and the designated nursing teams that utilize eVideonís systems can choose video content from HealthiNationís dedicated client portal. †HealthiNation produces and publishes dozens of health content videos weekly around such topics as:
- Cancer (breast, colorectal, lung, multiple myeloma, non-Hodgkinís lymphoma, osteosarcoma, prostate, skin)
