Online videos helped me select my valvular treatment and my cardiac surgeon." -- Adam Pick, HeartValveSurgery.com founder
Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) February 20, 2013
HeartValveSurgery.com, the world’s largest resource and community of patients with heart valve disease, announced today the launch of its new Educational Video Library.
“As a former patient, I remember how important online videos were to me, my family and my friends,” notes Adam Pick, founder of HeartValveSurgery.com. “Those videos helped me select my valvular treatment and my cardiac surgeon.”
The new Educational Video Library at HeartValveSurgery.com provides patients direct access to critical information about each step of the surgical cycle – from diagnosis through recovery. Over 45 original videos are now available within the video library.
“During the past three years, many leading surgeons have contributed their time and energy to support this initiative,” notes Pick. “Thanks to their support, we believe this new application will empower patients on a global scale.”
To segment video content and enhance patient usability, the Educational Video Library deploys robust categorization and content tagging mechanisms. For example, video categories include aortic stenosis, mitral valve repair, surgeon interviews and patient stories.
The application also includes an intelligent, impression-based Video Playback Panel that seamlessly connects to other educational sections within the HeartValveSurgery.com platform -- including the Surgeon Finder.
