Improving the Patient Experience
The patient experience has become quite the focus for many hospitals, health care facilities and medical offices today. The goal is shifting from curing the disease to healing the patient. While Western medicine has made incredible strides we may have lost a bit when it comes to compassionate, holistic care of the patient.
The complexity of administering healthcare in the 21st century has left a void in the healing process, especially for the hospitalized patient. Noisy environments, continuous interruptions, sensory deprivation, the lack of natural light and nature all contribute to the stress, anxiety and increased pain for a patient which, in turn, creates a poor patient experience. It’s easy to see that there are opportunities for improvement. Fortunately, there are healthcare facilities that are doing their best to improve conditions by offering a holistic approach to healing along with healing gardens, art therapy, aromatherapy, relaxation videos and music therapy.
One area that Healing Heart™ tv supports the improvement of the patient experience is with patient television programming. Often times the television is the only distraction a patient may have and the only way to be in touch with the outside world. We provide the most comprehensive collection of inspirational, uplifting, educational & healing media content available.
Original films by award winning cinematographer, Gina DeGirolamo, healing music by composer and music therapist John Adorney, Nature Relaxation™ Videos by David Huting and a myriad of inspirational video content curated from TED, Inside Quest, YouTube and others make up our media library. We provide a balance of free video content along with licensed material that is available for On Demand streaming, DVD purchase and a multitude of apps for iOS and Android.
