Elsevier's ExitCare Expands Collaboration with MEDITECH

LAKE ELMO, Minnesota, December 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

ExitCare's library of discharge instructions and patient education is available as an integrated solution through the MEDITECH Electronic Health Record (EHR)

Elsevier's ExitCare, an enterprise-wide solution for evidence-based patient education and discharge instructions, is now integrated directly with the MEDITECH Electronic Health Record (EHR).

In collaboration with MEDITECH, ExitCare's library of content, organized by care setting and composed of both Easy to Read and Standard content, is available in English and Spanish through MEDITECH's EHR, via the Patient Discharge Instruction application.  ExitCare's content is not only designed to offer healthcare providers an optimal user experience and more streamlined clinical workflow, but it is also intended to deliver relevant, condition-specific information to patients at the point of care.

"ExitCare's dedication to content design in accordance with health literacy principles supports enhanced communication between patients and providers for increased compliance, safety and satisfaction," stated Robert True, Manager of Business Development at MEDITECH.  "The ExitCare-MEDITECH collaboration is positioning providers to improve the documentation and delivery of healthcare information and services required across all care environments."

Elsevier's ExitCare provides associated print, electronic and video patient education content and tools that are critical to increasing patient engagement and reducing readmissions, and also meet the emerging needs of both hospitals and office-based physicians who wish to provide a multimedia education experience for their patients.  The ExitCare text-based content will also be fully accessible via MEDITECH's Patient & Consumer Health Portal offering, extending the integration benefits to wherever patients need it most.

"We are excited to be a MEDITECH collaborative solutions provider.  Our content and MEDITECH's technology platform complement each other to address customers' needs such as Meaningful Use, care transitions, improved outcomes, readmission reduction and more," said Richard Thompson, ExitCare's Executive Vice President of Strategic Partners.  "Embedding our solution into the clinical workflow through EHR integration continues to be the foundation of ExitCare's success and leadership position in the industry."

ExitCare is also working closely with MEDITECH to bring customers ExitCare OnScreen™, a video delivery system and content library for patient education.  It is an engaging collection of multimedia programs comprised of digital video, interactive questions and animated graphics.  Future integration within the MEDITECH platform will provide users the ability to launch ExitCare OnScreen and view reports directly from the MEDITECH application.
