LOS ANGELES (Nov. 1, 2017) — SONIFI Health, a leader in interactive patient engagement and education technology, announced an agreement with Healthwise to offer their award-winning, evidence-based health education content through its interactive patient engagement system.
Healthwise is an industry leader in developing patient education with a great attention to quality, usability and accuracy. They have won numerous awards from AVA Digital Awards, Digital Health Awards and the Center for Plain Language. Healthwise content supports current health education requirements including Meaningful Use and clinical and standard-of-care accreditation guidelines.
Patient education is integral to SONIFI Health’s patient engagement solution, anchored in the vision that patients who are more active in their own recovery process have better health outcomes. Videos inform the patient of their condition and treatment options, across a wide variety of diseases including congestive heart failure (CHF) heart attacks, asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD,) and diabetes to name a few.
Content to aid patient recovery and rehabilitation process can be prescribed manually or automatically by the system, based on a patient’s electronic health record. Patients and family members can access these materials across all key touch points – be it via the in-room TV, their own mobile device, or via a web portal at home, post-discharge.
The content can help educate and drive a patient’s preference for critical care decisions, and content modules can be dynamically changed based on the treatment option selected.
“SONIFI’s use of technology as an interactive tool for engaging and supporting patients is a perfect fit for our health education and for our own mission of helping people make better health decisions,” said Dave Mink, Chief Client Officer at Healthwise. “We are excited to see our content on their system.”
“Our mission is to help healthcare providers achieve better patient outcomes. Healthwise is a great partner in that goal,” said Bob Sullivan, General Manager at SONIFI Health. “They have more than 40 years of experience creating health education materials and they are committed to bringing more resources to patients. We are happy we can offer Healthwise content to our clients.”
