Digital Display System Specialist Jayex Launches Med-Extranet Online Media Library
Date:1/19/2011

LONDON, Jan. 19, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Jayex http://www.jayex.com, the healthcare digital display system specialist, today announces the launch of Med-Extranet; its online healthcare media library. Med-Extranet offers hospitals, clinics, and GP surgeries online access to educational videos, digital posters and public service announcements that can be displayed on patient waiting room screens.

Med-Extranet is a free service available to Jayex customers that enables healthcare organisations to replace old-fashioned, paper-based notices and posters and deliver tailored healthcare information via digital screens in the waiting room. Through designated Med-Extranet logins, healthcare organisations can select from a range of highly intuitive videos produced by NHS Choices, IDS UK and GasSafe which address key issues, such as diet, symptoms of illness or raising awareness on the dangers of carbon monoxide poisoning. The service also allows organisations to choose from a wide selection of electronic posters promoting national services, campaigns and health & well-being information.

Bob Marsh, Director, Jayex, comments, "Healthcare organisations are under increasing pressure to improve patient throughput without impacting upon the quality of care delivered. Furthermore, the government-led changes across healthcare as a whole will place further demands on clinician's time and resources. As such, healthcare professionals have less time to educate patients on other healthcare issues than that of the nature of their appointment."

Marsh continues, "Educating patients whilst they wait is an attractive offering for practice managers, chief executives and clinicians, who can select information pertaining to issues relevant to their local area via Med-Extranet. For example, an outbreak of swine flu in a particular region could trigger the practice manager to search and select within Med-Extranet for educational videos detailing preventative measures. The Med-Extranet content can then be showcased on waiting room screens. This enables patients to understand how to avoid catching the virus and minimise widespread infection through the Med-Extranet online media library."  

Presented on the Jayex digital display system, Med-Extranet content can be combined with patient call information as well as easily configurable messages that can promote community care services and/or information on cancelling unwanted appointments to reduce the number of Did Not Attends (DNAs).

Marsh adds, "In today's 24x7 society, individuals have extremely busy schedules and tend to plan appointments around work or social commitments. Patients often want to be diagnosed, treated and prescribed as quickly as possible; the opportunity with Med-Extranet to educate patients via waiting room screens in the idle time from arrival to being called by the GP or clinician is compelling."

Marsh concludes, "With Jayex's digital display system offering an educational and preventative approach to healthcare through Med-Extranet, the NHS can improve health awareness, drive down unnecessary appointments and reduce DNAs; whilst encouraging patients to take control over their own health issues through the power of knowledge."
