On-demand videos now available in EHR
StayWell has announced that its Krames On-Demand Videos are available in Epic electronic health records.
Clinicians can assign videos to patients to be read or watched within the patient's MyChart account. StayWell reports the patient watched the video, and it is marked as completed in the record.
More than 175 titles were available in English and Spanish, and the videos last between five and seven minutes.
“Healthcare providers are seeking new and innovative ways to enhance health education efforts. Video content is a key tool because it aligns with current consumer preferences for information and works well within a clinic setting or through a mobile platform,” said Joni Pierce, Senior Vice President of Product and Innovation at StayWell.
StayWell is a subsidiary of Merck & Co. Inc. and is headquartered in Pennsylvania.
