"The number 1 and 2 reasons for hospital re-admissions are dietary and medication-related," notes JoAnne Nabozny, Milner-Fenwick's product development manager, who describes Milner-Fenwick's heart failure products as hopeful and reassuring. "It's about patients who have successfully taken control of their heart failure and can provide encouragement and real-life lessons learned by others."
In addition to re-admissions, the whitepaper discusses the impact patient education has on hospital quality of care, driving higher HCAAPS scores, and leveraging new technologies to meet the growing demands for access to quality education materials.
The whitepaper examines the components of quality video health education as it relates to patient empowerment and better outcomes, what factors to consider, and how best to impact the patients self-management process.
Patient education can be provided whenever and wherever it is needed by combining effective education programs with cutting edge technology providers. Technology platforms increasingly are allowing hospitals to integrate, track and report within electronic medical records for a deeper analysis and quantifiable ROI.
