|Education for Better Outcomes|
The PatientLogix™ Media Studio provides a plethora of cloud based services and solutions to the healthcare
industry which can contribute to the lowering of patient re-admission rates and frequency of never events.
These solutions begin with ensuring that patients have several points of easy secure access to on-demand and or prescribed patient Health Education media content. This process can start before the patient even arrives at the hospital, and can continue after discharge regardless of what type of PatientLogix™ Media delivery System the hospital has installed; whether it is On-Demand, Prescriptive, Tablet, Smart Phone or an Enhanced Health Education Media solution.
The benefits of providing access and delivering PatientLogix(tm) Health Education media to patients are far-reaching, and provide not only for the well-being of patients but also benefit the entire healthcare system by decreasing the influx of patients into the healthcare network abyss deflecting the enormous costs associated with many of the preventable re-admissions and never events induced by patients.
|PatientLogix™ Pre-Admission Patient Health Education|
|For scheduled hospital stays, along with the pre-admission information package that a patient will be provided with by their doctor or the hospital, a patient will receive a PatientLogix™ Patient User ID number in credit card format by mail and sent a subsequent email with a link to www.patientlogix.com/patients and a Temporary Access Code which will enable the patient to login to our patient portal. Once logged in to the PatientLogix™ system the patient can then personalize and change their Temporary Access Code. In keeping with HIPAA privacy regulations no personal health information is stored on the PatientLogix™ Cloud or website.|
|Patient Health Education is equally important prior to the hospital stay as it eases the patient’s stress levels, instills a sense of calmness and confidence by educating them from the comfort of their own home. Typically the educational content would include information on what the patient should expect from their up-coming medical procedure, answering the most common questions about their medical condition so they don’t aggravate their illness, and provide them with helpful tips on how to treat themselves once they are discharged from the hospital and back in their home.|
|PatientLogix™ also includes a designated area on the same web page for hospitals to provide the patient with information on directions to get to the hospital, parking access, inpatient services and facilities such as; how meals are ordered, visiting hours, important phone numbers, payment methods, TV and gift shop services etc. This important hospital information inevitably familiarizes the patient with the hospital surroundings before their arrival, consequently reducing their anxiety and stress levels.|
|PatientLogix™ Hospitalization Stay Patient Health Education|
|The PatientLogix™ Media Studio can provide Health Educational videos to patient’s during their hospital stay on an on-demand basis from a comprehensive menu of Health Education videos which can be viewed by patients at their leisure, or be prescribed specific Health Educational videos their clinicians or physicians require them to view before or after their medical procedure. The PatientLogix™ system can also deliver and administer comprehension follow-up questions directly to the patient about the on-demand or the prescribed videos to test the patient’s comprehension level of the Health Education material that they viewed, keep track of the results, and send alerts and notifications to hospital personnel if the comprehension scores of the patient were unsatisfactory. This notification feature provides the hospital staff with an opportunity to re-visit the patient prior to the patient’s discharge to re-review the assigned Health Education material to ensure that the patient will be leaving the hospital with as much comprehension of their medical condition and post-hospital care as possible.|
|PatientLogix™ Post-Discharge Patient Health Education|
|As mentioned in the data and surveys emanating from the AHRQ, CFAH, KHN and the American Medical association in the Discharge Planning & Patient Safety section of our website, the typical hospital discharge process often leaves much to be desired. If a patient has received printed information on their medical condition and follow-up care, the chances are high that it will get misplaced or lost on the way home. Patients who have been given strong medications and or who are stressed about the transition going from a hospital care environment to a home environment worrying about what they need to do to ensure they have what they need, or remember what they need to know to care for themselves, especially the elderly, can quickly forget the material they viewed in the hospital. Once at home, they try to remember the doctor’s instructions as to what they can and cannot do, directions on the use of their medication, or follow-up instructions etc.|
|With the PatientLogix™ Media Studio the patient will be able to log into our online patient portal www.patientlogix.com/patients and use the same account information they had previously used for their pre-admission and in-hospital access to the PatientLogix™ system, and for a period of time, review the video material with a clearer state of mind at home with the use of a computer. If the patient does not have a computer, or is not familiar with its operation, a family member, friend and or personal caregiver with a laptop can help the patient login to the PatientLogix™ system and review the Health Education videos to assist them in their health literacy and self-management of their in-home post care.|
|Summary - Patient Care Continuum|
|It is reasonable to assume that patients suffering from a wide variety of medical conditions will realize improvements in self-efficiency, coping skills, patient satisfaction levels and overall improved health outcomes with better patient understandings of their health conditions through comprehensive patient Health Education processes.|
|Providing patients with enfettered and easy access to appropriate Health Educational content and information about their specific medical condition before, during, and after their hospitalization with the PatientLogix™ Media Studio 360° Patient Care Continuum Solution will pave the way for better Better Patient Outcomes and will ultimately will have a positive and influential effect in reducing re- admission rates and the frequency of never events being induced by patients.|
|Consequently in the context of escalating health care costs and alarming projections of future costs, utilizing PatientLogix™ Media Studio’s scalable, highly accessible and affordable cloud based educational media applications the potential payoff for the healthcare community at large and the individual patient is immense.|
