Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) June 03, 2014
Digital Assent, maker of the PatientPad® in-office patient engagement platform, today announced a strategic partnership with patient education software company Eyemaginations. As a result of this partnership, providers in aesthetic plastic surgery, dermatology, and otolaryngology can now utilize PatientPad as the most timely channel for delivering multimedia content from Eymaginations’ ECHO platform to educate patients at the point of care and advance the doctor-patient dialogue.
“Providing our customers with a seamless integration to the ECHO platform delivers a fantastic patient experience,” said Andrew Ibbotson, founder and CEO of Digital Assent. “Eyemaginations ECHO videos help doctors explain diagnoses and treatments to patients in a clear and effective manner, and this partnership creates the perfect opportunity for PatientPad to expand into the eye care market.”
One of the first practices to take advantage of the combined offering is Vance Thompson Vision, which offers aesthetic and oculoplastic treatments and is widely recognized as one of the world's leading laser and implant vision correction centers.
“We utilize PatientPads in various areas of the practice and load them with different information to customize the flow of information and education in each specific location,” stated Chelsea Asmus, director of first impressions and special projects at Vance Thompson Vision. “This flexibility of the PatientPad platform allows for a lot of creativity in how we use our tablets.”
PatientPad is the healthcare industry’s first tablet solution for capturing patient feedback at the time of service. At any time during their visit, patients can also use PatientPad to learn more about the practice, apply for financing, browse relevant health information - including 3D animated videos and other targeted educational content from Eyemaginations ECHO, and much more.
Eyemaginations has been a leader in patient education for over 15 years. “The partnership with PatientPad is so valuable to physicians and patients because it enables patients to explore our award-winning content on their own personalized iPad during the encounter, when education is most needed,” said Smitha Gopal, CEO of Eyemaginations. “We believe that giving patients access to timely and targeted visual education helps them make better health decisions.”
Special promotions are available to both new and existing customers of PatientPad and Eyemaginations.
