At the Medical University of South Carolina, we are continually looking for ways to improve our ability to serve the needs of our patients and family members. As an example of this commitment, we have partnered with GetWellNetwork, a leading provider of Interactive Patient Care solutions, to enable our patients, along with family members, to be active participants in their own care – all through the comfort and convenience of the television in the patient room. This service is available in many MUSC hospital rooms.
Get Informed. Get Entertained. Get Heard.
The GetWellNetwork system transforms the television in a patient room into a fully interactive resource. Through the television, you can use the GetWellNetwork system to:
- Learn more about your health, procedures and medications
- Access important information about hospital services and facilities
- Provide feedback regarding your hospital stay
- Watch on-demand movies
- Email family and friends
- Surf the Internet
- And more!
How Do You Use GetWellNetwork?
Once admitted to your patient room, the television will immediately welcome you to the hospital. Using a wireless keyboard, or other handheld devices (configurations can vary by room), you will be able to navigate through the simple on-screen menu to access valuable educational materials, hospital services, entertainment options, and feedback tools.
