TeleHealth Services updates interactive patient education solution

TeleHealth Services : 05 March, 2010  (New Product)
TeleHealth Services is unveiling an updated TIGR Version 7 system interactive patient education solution.
TeleHealth's TIGR on-demand patient and staff interactive education system has been installed in over 400 hospitals across the USA. The new interactive education system will provide patients with on-demand access to condition-specific patient education care plans. Additional functionality with tests, surveys and automated service recovery adds a higher level of customization to the patient experience and allows the hospital to proactively address any patient challenges efficiently. TIGR can also be used to provide education to staff members, from mandatory continuing education to quality reporting on national Patient safety goals and other hospital initiatives.

The new version provides senhancements to the overall flexibility and performance of the interactive education solution, including a new television driven graphical interface, enhancing the patient usability. Additional features include improved adherence reporting, optional dietary interface, enhanced active directory security and dynamic marquees that provide informational applications and expanded branding opportunities for hospitals.

The latest version of TIGR V7 was created to offer a multi-dimensional approach to a patient's recovery plan. The uniqueness of each patient and the added functionality allows hospitals to design a care and recovery program based on individual needs and circumstances of each patient. Reaching patients during teachable moments with educational support provides immense benefits in continuity of care, improved patient outcomes, lower costs and reduced remittance rates. It also aids hospitals in meeting facility compliance and accreditation requirements.

'We are always adding new functionality to our TIGR system to help hospitals stay on top of constantly changing standards and guidelines,' said Richard Bootes, Vice President of Development for Telehealth Services. 'As the cost of healthcare rises, it's increasingly important for hospital executives to seek out innovative ways to help patients effectively manage their health needs. The TIGR interactive patient education system gives hospitals a user-friendly patient education experience, while focusing clinical work time and aiding hospitals in wellness programs and accreditation efforts.'

'Successfully providing patient education is a huge component of optimal healthcare,' added George Fleming, Chief Executive Officer of TeleHealth. 'Encouraging patients and families to use reliable, hospital-approved technology and patient education content to actively inform themselves will lead to a better system of care overall. Our full turnkey, on-demand solution provides a single touch point for cutting edge technologies, customized financing solutions and deployment services enabling hospitals to focus on what matters most - providing quality patient care and improving the financial health of the facility.'
