08 Sep CardioVisual Filmed for AccentHealth
SEPT 8, 2016 — AUSTIN, TX CardioVisual, LLC, is pleased to announce its upcoming inclusion in programming for AccentHealth, CNN’s patient-education waiting-room media network.
Dr. Duane Pinto, an Interventional Cardiologist at Harvard University and longtime user of the CardioVisual app, today was interviewed for a segment on AccentHealth, which provides award-winning CNN programming co-hosted by CNN’s Chief Medical Correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta and HLN host Robin Meade.
Recognizing the CardioVisual app’s importance not only to busy healthcare providers who are grateful for the app’s utility as a patient-communication tool, CNN/AccentHealth also saw a need to share information about CardioVisual with patients sitting in waiting rooms. Viewing the waiting room videos, patients will learn how the CardioVisual app explains — using short, easy-to-understand videos — complicated cardiovascular problems.
CardioVisual is a free, cardiologist-created mobile app (iPhone, iPad and Android) that provides clear understanding of complex heart conditions, treatments and procedures via high-quality, commercial-free videos. Doctors and nurses use the app in their practice and hospitals to facilitate patient communication, and then send patients home with a patient version of the app for further study.
AccentHealth is a leading patient-education media company at the point-of-care, located in more than 30,000 physician waiting rooms, serving more than 70,000 medical practitioners nationwide, and reaching 173 million patients each year.
