NOOKs and iPads for Healthcare Consumers

The Myra Mahon Patient Resource Center (PRC) at the Joan & Sanford I. Weill Cornell Medical College of Cornell University (WCMC) develops and implements initiatives designed to engage and educate patients of varying ages and ethnicities with a variety of health conditions in support of making healthcare decisions. Funding will support the PRC to further its mission of providing patients with information and educational resources by using electronic tablets to expand patients? information access. The PRC also seeks support to purchase, format, and load digital content onto tablets including the PRC?s Health Seminar Series and educational materials related for the new ?information prescription? (Info Rx) program. These technologies will enable the PRC to deliver patient-centered resources in ways that are both effective and novel.
