FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
January 22, 2014 (VANCOUVER) HealthChoicesFirst.com is excited to announce an exclusive video content deal with Liberate Health, a US and Canadian company in collaboration with the Rogers Healthcare Group. HealthChoicesFirst.com will be the sole video content provider for the Liberate mobile health app, a tablet (iOS), mobile (iOS) and cloud-based eco-system that helps healthcare professionals such as physicians and pharmacists create and share educational content with patients.
“Statistics show that patients only retain about 20 percent of what their healthcare providers tell them about their diseases and conditions, treatments and ongoing management,” says Jackson Sayers, CEO, HealthChoicesFirst.com. “With the Liberate app and HealthChoicesFirst.com video content, healthcare providers can distill complex information into an easy-to-understand format the patient can refer to anywhere, anytime. By leveraging our wealth of expert content and Liberate's technology, we'll be offering a unique solution that revolutionizes patient education and care.”
Healthcare practitioners can provide patients with detailed information customized to their situation, including HealthChoicesFirst.com videos, audio, screen annotations, text, photos and documents. These will be compiled into a PVR (Patient Visit Record), which healthcare providers and patients can access and share.
“HealthChoicesFirst.com focuses on comprehensive solutions, with experts speaking on numerous topics relevant to healthcare providers and patients including diabetes, arthritis, cancer, pregnancy, dementia and brain injury,” says Sayers. “In addition, HCF has content on nutrition, exercise, alternative medicine and physiotherapy, allowing patients to take control of their own health through lifestyle changes. So, this app will really be a valuable tool for a patient’s long-term health planning and overall well-being.”
