And equally as important, the MPC helps doctors explain procedural risks and complications, plus appropriately establish expectations in a more patient-friendly and personal manner.
"Surveys indicate that 60 percent of patients do not comprehend or even read printed consent forms," said Kelvin Buncum, president of International Medical Solutions. "In discussions with leading medical organizations, we recognized that improving the consent process required consideration of factors such as patient stress, literacy and language. Our video-enhanced informed consent embeds multimedia elements and interactive assessments to gauge and increase patient comprehension. This not only improves doctor-patient communications
, it significantly enhances patient safety and organizational quality."
All MPC models are password protected, run on secure in-house wireless networks and are compatible with common wireless network standards.
IMS' interactive software provides patients comprehensive access to medical data via portable touch-screens used during visits to their healthcare provider's facilities. The Mobile Patient Communicator™ provides a user-friendly platform that facilitates patient check-in, electronic form completion, simplifies complex medical instruction and informed consent, reinforces knowledge and teaches patients healthy behavior, all while boosting nurse and staff productivity.
