HMH launches new tools to enhance patient education and engagement

September 11, 2019

Healthcare today is not about getting a shot, treatment or having a procedure done; it’s about having a partner in your healthcare. At Howard Memorial Hospital, we believe in being your partner in care. We are pleased to announce the launch of our new HealthClipsOnline Video and Resource Library, providing access to patients and our community on a variety of topics from Gastroenterology to Quality of Care and Wellness.  Another helpful topic is Integrative Medicine that give the patient other ways to cope with sleep and pain.    

“Howard Memorial Hospital is proud to offer this unique opportunity to enhance educational engagement with our patients and their loved ones at a time when they’re most in need of key information, and highly motivated to take action to improve their health,” said Kim Turbeville, Administrative Director. “We think this will encourage discussion among patients, their families and their providers. Those discussions can improve understanding of the patient’s condition, steps to improve their recovery, and reduce the risk of readmission.”

Made possible through a partnership with The Wellness Network, a leading provider in patient education and engagement tools and resources, this resource library delivers educational tips and information when and where the patient needs it most. Patients, families, and caregivers are invited to access the library online at using passcode 08936. In addition, core education will be airing on our in-facility TVs, delivered as part of our patient education tablet program, and integrated into education care plans. 

In a recent survey, patients shared how these tools impacted them: 

  • 99 percent said they learned about important health issues
  • 97 percent said the information helped them make decisions about their health
  • 90 percent were receptive to receiving information about lifestyle changes, which is key to influencing modifiable risk factors, and
  • 71 percent felt the information from the channel made their condition less intimidating.

 “We strive to provide our patients with the best resources available to help them achieve optimal health,” Alesha Collins, CNO said. “We’re excited to now have the award-winning HealthClipslibrary to add to our offerings.”
