Centra Health and TeleHealth Services Partner to Launch Enterprise Interactive Patient Education for Patient Satisfaction and Safety
Date:2/2/2012

Lynchburg, Va. and Raleigh, N.C., Feb. 2 , 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- TeleHealth Services, the nation's leading provider of healthcare-grade televisions and interactive patient education solutions, today announced that it has partnered with Centra Health (Centra) to deploy the TIGR interactive patient education system across the health system's acute care facilities. Centra is a technology driven, award-winning health system with state-of-the-art hospitals and health center facilities well known nationwide for their excellence in clinical and patient care. The partnership is focused on developing resources to transform patient care at Centra Lynchburg General and Centra Virginia Baptist Hospitals. In a campaign to motivate patient involvement in their recovery and educating patients about their role in the process, Centra has integrated the system across 1060 beds in the system as well as interoperability with their McKesson EMR system.

Looking to enhance its facility technology services and overall patient experience, Centra embarked on a detailed search process for a new interactive patient care system provider. After comparing providers, Centra chose TeleHealth Services for offering the only enterprise platform that could be deployed across the system, while providing a three-tiered integrated solution for future expansion of the system. TeleHealth Services' reputation of providing leading support and flexible financing options also played a big role in the decision. TIGR's unique communication system will allow clinicians and staff to provide 24x7 access to condition-specific educational content as well as important patient safety information and other hospital messaging. Centra's integrated strategy for patient engagement involves both patient education and entertainment.

"A technology based strategy for patient engagement enabled us to seamlessly blend our fantastic clinical resources with interactivity at the point of care," said Robert
