GetWellNetwork and KidsHealth(R) Launch New Interactive Patient Education Content for Pediatric Patients and Their Families

"Staying in the hospital can be a very confusing and overwhelming experience for children and their parents," said Dr. Russell Cross, M.D., Children's National Medical Center in Washington, D.C. "These patient-friendly educational videos will no doubt help to put them at ease and gain a better understanding of what to expect from their stay. We look forward to being able to more efficiently share and document important patient education."

"By presenting pediatric patient education in an engaging and effective way, we are hoping to involve children and their families as active participants in their own care," said Neil Izenberg, M.D., founder and editor-in-chief of KidsHealth. "The KidsHealth video libraries explain medical procedures in language that both parents and kids can understand, and help decrease the anxiety that many children experience while hospitalized," adds Izenberg.

GetWellNetwork and KidsHealth first partnered in 2008 to help hospitals engage pediatric patients and their families in their own health care process through interactive patient education content. The content is available exclusively through the GetWellNetwork PatientLife System, which uses the in-room television to deliver personalized information, education and communications tools at the bedside. As part of the partnership, KidsHealth will develop over 160 educational titles for the PatientLife System. Next in the series are the Cancer Suite and Diabetes Suite, which will be rolled out to hospitals in 2010.

"Our goal is to provide patients and their families with an unparalleled experience while enabling hospitals to improve the quality of care and meet important performance measures," said
