WASHINGTON, June 27, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- WomenHeart: The National Coalition for Women with Heart Disease announces its collaboration with ContextMedia:Health, the leading provider of digital solutions at the point of care in the United States. ContextMedia:Health delivers curated patient education to waiting rooms and exam rooms at over 25,000 hospitals and physician practices across the country.
Through this partnership, WomenHeart's patient education videos are now available on ContextMedia:Health Waiting Room Screens and Exam Room Tablets in cardiology, OBGYN, and internal medicine physician member clinics and member hospitals. Additionally, WomenHeart's women and heart disease-specific educational infographics are featured on ContextMedia:Health's Digital Exam Room Wallboards which guarantee patients access to relevant health information during their health visits and treatment. This key information empowers women heart patients and their caregivers with education about specific heart conditions, engages them to make better lifestyle decisions, and promotes shared decision-making for patients and physicians.
"Heart disease is the number one cause of death of women, and can present very differently in women than in men. 43 million American women are living with or at risk of heart disease. This partnership will enhance prevention, early detection, accurate diagnosis, quality of care and outcomes for women living with heart disease. We look forward to members of WomenHeart's National Hospital Alliance utilizing ContextMedia:Health's point-of-care technologies to serve their women heart patients," said Mary McGowan, Chief Executive Officer, WomenHeart: The National Coalition for Women with Heart Disease.
In the first month of partnership, WomenHeart's patient education videos were shown more than 116,000 times, while WomenHeart's women and heart disease-specific infographics were viewed more than 260,000 times on Digital Exam Room Wallboards in thousands of physician practices and hospitals.
