Healthcare interactions – in our practices and hospitals – are complicated and confusing. Care providers convey large amounts of information to patients which can be difficult to absorb in the moment, and even harder to retain after the fact. This loss of information leads to unanswered questions, confused plans, and poor adherence to care.
Vidscrips are brief videos, made by our providers and staff to capture the information they provide in care settings, that are available for patients and their family members to watch at home.
