New. CompanionWave. So much more than patient entertainment.
Imagine if it were possible for each patient to receive personalised entertainment and information to suit their age, language and reason for stay while delivering on key Hospital outcomes.
Patients. A patient experience that is personalised. It’s better. Let’s explore how.
Supporting patient recovery. Patients are empowered because they understand their care plan and feel in control. Informed patients recover more quickly, reducing their length of stay.
Enhancing the patient experience. Future proof entertainment and infotainment helps patients become distracted to relax and aid recovery, while access to communication tools keeps them connected to family and friends which reduces loneliness.
CompanionWave ensures Adam has a personalised experience, allowing him to enjoy children’s TV channels, his favourite games, information about his stay and instant connection to family/friends through video chat or social media.
Peter doesn’t use technology much in everyday life, however he got up to speed with CompanionWave’s user interface in no time. Now, Peter feels more in control of his own care and CompanionWave has given him the ability to have a more informed and meaningful conversation with his doctor.
Education. Empowered patients.
Patients who are more educated about their condition become more empowered in their care. CompanionWave offers personalised information specific to their stay that ultimately helps speed up their recovery. Recovering more quickly reduces their length of stay, reducing costs for the Hospital.
Cost savings. Patients that are in control.
Normally, Hospital administrative tasks like meal ordering or patient surveys would be paper-based, taking up administration time for clinicians or other staff. With CompanionWave, patients can play an active role in their care by doing those tasks themselves. Empowering patients, while saving the Hospital money and saving staff time.
Staff. More time to care, improved clinical outcomes and cost savings. Let’s explore.
Improve clinical outcomes. Deliver patient and clinical outcomes. More informed patients understand their care plan better and recover more quickly. This reduces their length of stay and reduces readmission rates – saving costs.
Save money. Save time. Through administrative efficiencies, such as using the differentiated nurse call and apps like pain management/translation tools which improve communication. Manage centrally too – with no more vending machines.
Better CQC score. CompanionWave is a great way to increase patient satisfaction and engagement scores, a vital requirement for high CQC scores.
Differentiated nurse call. A nurse call unlike any other.
If a patient and nurse combined to invent a nurse call, what would it look like? It would be interactive and specific so patients could pick from different nurse call options. It would be mobile, help communication, save nurses time and reduce costs for the NHS. It would be CompanionWave.
Reporting. Analytics for proactivity.
Improve administrative efficiencies by analysing information such as the most frequent nurse calls, peak nurse call times, amount of time saved with relevant staff and improving response times. All of this increases efficiency, proactively reduces falls and reduces costs.
Interpreter at the bedside.
A report has found that the NHS spends around £23m annually on interpreters and translation to ensure patients completely understand their care plan. Staff using CompanionWave can access translation tools which revolutionise their interpretation of different languages. Enhancing the patient experience and reducing spend for the NHS.
