Florida Hospital Altamonte delivers Interactive Patient Care to Central Florida through a partnership with GetWellNetwork. IPC is a relatively new concept that leverages HD LCD screens inside each patient room to deliver education and entertainment while engaging a patient to take an active role in their own clinical care. Patients are now empowered to become a part of the care team alongside their doctors and nurses so that they move from a passive 'things happening to me' role to an active, informed and better prepared patient that is able to communicate with and make decisions with the team.
Florida Hospital Altamonte is providing the GetWellNetwork to patients in their new 72 bed patient tower. Patients now have access to rich patient education, medication databases, full high-speed internet, on-demand movies -- all deigned to empower patients, provide comfort and connect them with family beyond the walls of the hospital.
Altamonte is one of eight hospitals in the Orlando, FL area, all of which make up Florida Hospital. Florida Hospital was founded in 1908 and is one of the largest hospitals in the country, serving more than 1,000,000 patients a year. For the last seven years, Florida Hospital has been recognized as one of the best hospitals in the country by U.S. News and World Report.
