Integration of content and platform to bring more comprehensive solution to school-aged children’s hospital bedside
WOODBURY, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Learn360Health, a division of Learn360 and healthcare’s first single-source digital content provider of Patient Education, Relaxation, Entertainment and Pediatric K-12 Education Services, today announces a partnership with Optimal Solutions’ eVideon Healthcare to bring the Classroom to the Hospital. The partnership will integrate Learn360’s high-quality educational video content with the eVideon Healthcare interactive patient TV system. Hospitalized school-aged children will have access to more than 9,300 Learn360 titles through eVideon’s system.
Integration of Learn360’s content with the eVideon Healthcare system removes the time restriction when educational material is available to patients, allowing students to continue their education at their own pace. The partnership augments tutor and teacher programs and provides parents with the ability to monitor their child’s progress. The Learn360Health content continues to be available to patients following discharge.
Learn360’s video content is used by more than 37,000 schools throughout the U.S. and Canada. All titles and resources are correlated to state, national and provincial curriculum standards, and content is provided by top educational publishers, such as Encyclopedia Britannica, A&E Television Networks and National Geographic, among others.
“Continuing the education for hospitalized children is difficult and often overlooked,” said Ed Murphy, Learn360’s vice president of marketing and business development. “Education can be critical to the overall mental health of the family and patient, so having curriculum-based video content available outside of treatment and visitation schedules helps bridge that gap.”
eVideon Healthcare is an interactive patient TV system that utilizes IP network technology to deliver a personalized experience to patients. Using the pillow speaker, eVideon transforms the in-room TV into a two-way communication tool for hospital staff and patients. The service provides a sense of control and engagement with enriching content.
“Our company serves two industries – education and healthcare, and we’ve successfully worked with Learn360 in many schools,” said Jeff Ingle, founder of Optimal Solutions. “Now, kids and families will benefit from having its content integrated into our system. It sets the stage for a fascinating future of close interaction between schools and hospitals.”
Learn360Health understands the importance of providing proven and credible content with 21st century technology to ensure healthcare providers maximize Patient Satisfaction. Partnering with top entertainment and education content providers in healthcare, Learn360Health delivers an extensive library of Patient Entertainment, Relaxation and Education digital video titles and online resources.
