SIOUX FALLS, S.D., Sept. 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- SONIFI Health, the leading provider of interactive systems for hospital patients, today announced a partnership with St. Mary Medical Center to deliver Interactive Television Services to their patients and guests. The SONIFI Interactive system will be installed in all patient rooms throughout St. Mary Medical Center to help educate, engage and empower patients.

"The SONIFI system will integrate with several of our hospital systems to personalize and streamline the care process for each patient."
"It's a privilege to partner with St. Mary to further advance their efforts to continually improve the experience and health outcomes among their patients," said Bob Sullivan, SONIFI Health General Manager.

Through integration with Meditech EMR, the SONIFI interactive TV system can automatically prompt and deliver video and medication education specific to the patient's condition and treatment. Patients will be able to order meals from their TV through integration with Computrition. Patients can also complete questionnaires and submit requests through the TV which are routed to the care team through integration with the Vocera nurse call system.
