Tech Improvement: Interdisciplinary Point-of-care Patient Health Education Initiative

The funding of this initiative would allow the hospital to purchase a number of Chrome Books that will be used hospital wide to provide patient education resources for teaching moments at the point-of-care. The technology will be formatted for optimum access to the library?s subscription patient education resources as well as free quality information online. The focus will be to provide materials at appropriate reading levels (2nd ? 6th grade level), foreign language health resources and audio/video/interactive tutorials. Instructional sessions will be provided by the hospital librarian for clinicians so they will have knowledge of the wide array of education resources available and will be able to select the best materials for each patient and situation.
