Children's Hospitals to Deliver Specialized Pediatric Patient Education at

the Bedside

BETHESDA, Md. and WILMINGTON, Del., March 11 /PRNewswire/ -- GetWellNetwork, Inc., a leading provider of Interactive Patient Care (IPC) solutions, and KidsHealth, the largest provider of online pediatric health information, today announced a partnership to co-develop a comprehensive suite of pediatric patient education content specifically designed for parents, kids and teens. The KidsHealth patient education videos will be exclusively accessible at the patient bedside through the GetWellNetwork(R) PatientLife System(R). The partnership is intended to help hospitals engage pediatric patients and their families in their own healthcare process while addressing objectives from the Joint Commission and Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI).

"We believe that health information should be as engaging and interesting as most of the other entertainment that kids see on their in-room TVs," says Neil Izenberg, M.D., founder and editor-in-chief of KidsHealth. "The time families spend in the hospital provides important teachable moments and opportunities to present information that doctors and nurses need patients to really understand. The KidsHealth-GetWellNetwork partnership will present this information in new ways that significantly improve the overall experience for the patients, their families and the staff."

The KidsHealth partnership is a result of the leadership and direction provided by the GetWellNetwork Children's Hospital Task Force, which consists of more than a dozen children's hospital representatives from across the country dedicated to leveraging technology to improve the quality of patient care and the patient and family experience in the pediatric environment.

"Golisano Children's Hospital is excited about the partnership between GetWellNetwork and KidsHealth," said Elizabeth Lattimore, executive directo
