oving patient outcomes and safety. ExitCare will provide Elsevier with associated print, electronic and video patient education content and tools that are critical to increasing patient engagement and reducing readmissions, and also meet the emerging needs of both hospitals and office-based physicians who wish to provide a multimedia education experience for their patients. Elsevier and ExitCare first began collaborating in November 2011 on several content solutions, including Mosby's Nursing Consult, Clinical Pharmacology and MD Consult.
"Our extensive group of nearly 60 domestic and international resellers - including hospital information systems, electronic medical record and other companies - will benefit from the complementary suite of products to improve the provider experience and enhance clinical workflow and documentation in today's regulatory environment," said Roger Jacobi, President of ExitCare. "Together we address the needs of hospitals, urgent care centers and physicians' practices that must empower patients with informational and educational content. Our sophisticated product and market development, 12 different languages and content that contains meta tags including ICD-9 and 10, CPT, gender, age, cognitive level, language and more will enable Elsevier customers to answer the demands of various patient populations."
Elsevier's primary clinical constituents use ExitCare's patient education material to evaluate care, plan for care, facilitate transitions of care, and educate patients on their diseases, medications, labs and all other critical health information available at the point of care. The content is delivered through referential solutions and is also embedded into the clinical workflow through EHR integration.
ExitCare is headquartered in Minnesota. The acquisition is effective immediately and financial terms of the transaction are not being disclosed.
