Fairchild next provided inpatients a hotel-style menu, personalized for each patient, and new entertainment choices. For many years cable service was the patients’ only choice when hospitalized. Today, patients have satellite TV and on-demand movies using a hotel-styled menu that is easy to navigate. The sleep enhancement module has also been very popular with patients.
Patient education content from a third party provided an important value to providers and nurses. Fairchild’s next steps will be to integrate education orders from an EMR, queuing a list of patient education to watch and documenting education completed in a patient’s chart.”
