GetWellNetwork and KidsHealth Partner to Empower Pediatric Patients and Their Families
Date:3/11/2008

r of clinical services at Golisano Children's Hospital at Strong Memorial Hospital. "There has been incredible demand by both hospital staff and patients for innovative patient education content designed exclusively for children and their families, and now we are finally able to deliver this through the GetWellNetwork system."

The GetWellNetwork system empowers patients and their families by placing them at the center of their own care experience. The system turns the television in the patient room into an interactive resource during a hospital stay. By using a wireless keyboard, touch screen or handheld device, patients and families can interact with the system to access valuable education, communication and entertainment tools directly at the bedside.

"In working with our Children's Hospital Task Force, GetWellNetwork identified a tremendous need for quality patient education geared specifically toward the pediatric audience," said Michael O'Neil, Jr., founder and CEO of GetWellNetwork, Inc. "By working with KidsHealth to develop specialized, age- appropriate patient education materials for children, teens and their parents, we are able to bring children's hospitals an unparalleled opportunity - resulting in an improved patient experience and satisfaction."

The first suite of pediatric patient content will focus on pediatric asthma and will specifically focus on treatment and management; prevention measures; lifestyle impact; and resources for families. Additional suites are scheduled to follow.

GetWellNetwork and KidsHealth will preview the pediatric patient education videos at the NACHRI Creating Connections Conference (Miami, Fla.) on March 16-19 in booths #4 and #5.
